Moving up.

Hey Guys,
I just picked up an '00 Super Duty with the 6 speed attached to it. Drove it home (250 miles) last night and drove like a dream.

I still have my '95 OBS PSD and will be putting it up for sale soon. It's not in prestine condition, but she runs and drives well.

She has several new parts and 247K miles.

I am thinking of asking $6000 for her and then take offers.

Does that seem about right for a PSD that doesn't have blow by according to the oil cap test?

That's what I was thinking. It has that Ford charcoal grey paint and is faided. Body is pretty straight.
Here in Carlsbad, NM it is oil field area and people pay for diesels. When I was looking at newer trucks, I went to Lubbock TX to same some money.
When I list it, it's going on Craigslist and I'll post the listing here so you guys can take a look at it.

6k for an 18 year old 2 wheel drive truck with a quarter million miles... I think you're getting your hopes too high. But... you can always start high and dicker down.

That's part of putting something up for sale. I don't think I've ever heard someone say they wonder how "little" they can get for what they are selling. lol

Diesels are high dollar here in the oil patch. A buddy of mine just sold a '96 PSD 4x4 standard cab that was very similar shape to mine for $8200. Here is the kicker. That truck had 370K miles on it. He had it for sale for 1.5 months until it sold. This is why I went to Lubbock to buy a truck.

I am hoping the $6k would make for a quick sale and of course I can dicker a little with it also. I know I wouldn't pay the prices they have here but a lot of people do.

We'll see what happens

Good grief... if they are bringing those kinds of prices maybe I'll bring mine down there and sell it! I should be sitting on 15k...

Yeah, I seen a 92 over here, 220k miles, real nice shape and they wanted $16K for it.
Last time I drove past the driveway, it was gone.
Don't know what final price was settled on, but....

Bring your down and do an upgrade! lol
I paid for my new 2000 (in lubbock) what I can probably get for my '95 (in Carlsbad). hopefully a close to even swap in a round about way.
The oil patch loves any kind of diesel due to the reliability. They go 50-100 miles off the main path and gas just has not provided the reliability required for the guys to get home. They love diesels down here
We will see what my truck brings.
