How about beaten to hell? I am thinking about picking one up tomorrow. runs and drives, needs paint. Lots of little things wrong but no major structural rust.

1973 F350 scs. It has a 390 with 4.11 gears and a posi. It started and idled. A few exhaust leaks, no door locks, a few lug nuts loose.

Any idea what it should be worth? I am looking to use it to haul stuff short distances. Maybe throw a coat of paint on it. This does seem to be the place to look for parts and advice.

Thanks,
-Greg

Not sure about worth , but they do seem to be quite rare. Looks pretty solid from what i can see. I picked up/saved mine from a guy who was gonna grab the ac dash and scrap the rest. used as my daily driver for two years and could not kill this truck. i'm gonna reward her for her service with a full rebuild this year. your right about the site, lots of accumulated knowledge here.

Pat67shorty nice truck love the late model wheels. 2wd's have their own following but i agree there seems to be more demand for the 4wd's lately. i love my one ton dent and dont think i could ever sell. i'll post some pics once i figure out how to get gallery to work stupid computer lol

2k, very negotiable. Seems too high, but it has a jasper 460 in it with like 50 miles on it. you'd think that alone would be incentive. body is awesome, but it being 2wd put alot of people off.

I've owned three great 140" wb F350's in my life - a '74 Custom Super Camper Special with 390/C6, a '74 Ranger XLT Super Camper Special with a 460/C6, and a '73 F350 Ranger with a 460/C6 (just a plain F350, not a SCS). Great trucks, wished I kept each one.
