Newbie looking for a diesel

Hey guys, I am a new guy to the whole diesel thing, and I am looking for a project ford Powerstroke 7.3 Powerstroke diesel, 1993-1997

NEEDS TO BE RUNNING
it doesn't have to be pretty, it just has to run. I am looking to restore and modify it, and drive it till the wheels fall off.
I would like a 4x4, not a necessity, but would be nice, I don't care about the color, cab, or transmission, it does need to be long bed though, i don't care if it's a dually. I am willing to pay anywhere from 500 to 1000 dollars. I can come and get it or meet halfway.

PM me if you have anything, pics too!!

Thanks guys!!
A.

Your not gonna find a psd in 1993 m/y. You will find them in 1994.5, but they are only found with the turbo diesel badge and a 5spd trans. There were no autos available. 97 is the best year for these obs as they had a better block, better trans, better programming. Although any of them are really good.

^^^^^^ I'm not going to say you won't find anything for $1k but I think you would have a lot better luck for around $2500 and it may still have wheels on it. You might find a IDI diesel for cheaper, the value of the obs trucks have gone up, not necessarily in the blue book but to the people that have them and then compare the prices on the superduties.

Even my own, I bought it for $8800 almost 8 years ago and have had multiple offers for over $10k for it lately and I have no interest in selling it.

Oh when I bought mine it was as bone stock as it could get with 250000 on it, but at the time it was the best deal I could find.
