looking at a 95

So theres this 95 f-350 forsale down the road, but the truck is in bad shape cosmetically, the paints faded and the interior is filthy, but the motor runs great and the body is solid, its 1000, is it worth getting?

Whats the mileage on it, also make sure that the regular maintence has been done, any accidents, is there a lot of rust under it. For that price as long as everything looks good I would say go for it.

Got any pics?

the only thing is the front end might need some work that is what i ran into. old farm trucks tend to have that problem other than that sounds like a good deal

I had to have most of the front end rebuilt on mine too and I paid 8 thousand for my truck so for a thousand with that mileage I would get it right away
