To Buy, Or Not To Buy
Hey guys, been reading this forum for a few months, but haven't had any reason to post until now. Here it goes:
I'm relatively new to the diesel world. My uncle had a '96 F-350 with a 7.3 that I fell in love with driving but sold it before I had enough funds saved up to buy it so I've been searching for a 7.3 ever since.
I used the 'search' button, and found some good information, but figured I'd post up anyways and see what the most current opionions are.
Looking into buying a 2002 F250 4x4 EC/LB with a 7.3 and 90xxx on the clock. The only issue with the truck is that is has a salvage title (the only reason it's in my price range). The previous owner says that all of the damage was to the body, none to frame, and the truck has been restored to mint condition. I'm not worried at all about resale value, as I plan on driving this thing for years to come.
What would you guys pay for a truck like this? The owner is asking 8k, and is fairly firm on the price. I haven't been able to take a look at the truck personally yet (it's about an hour from my house), but from the pictures it looks like the real deal. Anything I should watch out for? I'll post up again when I have more information.
