Is this 99' a good deal?

First off, hi I'm new to the board it's good to be here.

This is another "what should I pay for this truck" thread but I'm new to 7.3 diesel pickups. Right now I have an older F150 gas guzzler.

Here it is:

99 F250 extended cab, 7.3, 6spd manual, power windows/seats, 370,000mi


the good:
The interior is nice, it appears to run strong, no drips under the chassis.
new radiator and transmission, brakes & rotors
newer glow plugs
had injectors replaced some time ago

the bad:
The body is nicked and scratched
The oil change looks overdue 3K (he said he's done it himself recently but who really knows.
The check engine light is on
the suspension is pretty beat
tires are O.K but not that good



If anyone wants to chime in that would be great!

i would say hell no...... i could cost you a ton of money to get it running right and get it how you should be were you could spend that same amount of money your going to put into it and find one in decent condition....

i just saw a CC LB 2003 in about the same condition but needs a few injectors for 2k cash out here

For 3K, I don't think it's a bad deal. Find out why the check engine light is on. And my oil looks dirty shortly after I change it. Just the nature of the motors really.

How long has it been since the oil change? 370,000 is not bad on a maintained 7.3. Check for alot of blowby, check the turbo wheel for wear and excess play. how does it start when its been sitting all night. What color smoke does it blow if any. If it starts decent, doesnt blow blue smoke and holds boost good, then 3 grand is not terrible. Id be more around 2500, but I always beat ppl up on the price. Really depends how you are planning to use your truck. Work beater/hauler? Go for it. Long term project? Na, you can spend a couple more grand for a truck that you can spend more in go fast parts than other parts

Even with some work, I think that's a pretty good price, but I would have the codes scanned first. (Keep in mind the cheap OBDII scanners won't usually work with a PSD.)
Otherwise....looks like a pretty good deal!
