1997 Powerstroke

Hey guys i am new to the forums. I am wanting to buy a 94 to 97 powerstroke and i found one in my home town it is a 1997 F350 Crew Cab with 220000 and they want 7900. It has a rebuilt title because the cab got hit by a bucket truck and they put a new cab on it. It was owned by an old man and has never had anything done to it. I was wanting to get someones opinion if it was a good deal and i should get it?

Hey cjmiller23 I really dont think its that good of a deal because i just bought a 97 F-250 with a clear title and i only paid $2,650 for it. Mine is a 7.3 5 speed supper cab with after market bumpers and grill guard but mine does have 300000 miles on it. I would say if you look around u will find a better deal but that would be up to you. what state are you looking in because if you are close to Texas then you will find cheap 7.3 all day long.

I feel your pain. It took me like three months to find a truck for my dad and it was about 4 hours one way. I think that price is high, but they are hard to come by for a fair price. If you are willing to travel you will find one for a better price. Just keep an eye on craigslist and you will find one. What are you really looking for, cuz I look for trucks everyday on craigslist.

I find it especially hard to find decent F-350s. How far are you willing to travel, cuz if I see one I could let ya know. There was a truck about 5 miles from me for sale, a 97 F-350 cclb with like 220,000 for $6700. We actually worked for the guy before and my dad said he was a really good guy, I think it sold though, it's not on craigslist anymore.

I am looking right now and found a few. The F-250 says sold, but the posting isn't that old. The first F-350 needs work, but is a pretty fair price IMO. I constantly look, so if I find any more decent trucks, I will let ya know if ya want.
