body style is even wrong... looks like an IDI 6.9 or 7.3... before PSD, no turbo, mid 80's to '93.

the ad is for an engine, not a truck first off...

people searching craigslist generally prefer ads with pictures. Like I said, he probably did a google image search and typed in "ford diesel engine" and picked the first pic that looked decent.

They're from Diesel Power magazine. It's obvious that he didn't take the pictures.

Nowhere in the ad does it say "send me ur mobnies n then ill send u teh motorz, promise!!! kthx"

It says "call bob"

have you called bob? just curious

LOL, and now he's changed the pictures. Probably because some forum troll called or emailed him and was like "OMG, ur a scammer!!!!!!!!!! don't take meh mobnies!"

made the poor guy go out, take pics, load them to his computer, load them to his ad, etc.
