79,900 mile F350!

Forget the other one I posted. This is truly a rare find.

Buying it from the original owner. He is 80 years old and the truck is extremely clean by the looks of it. 79,000 miles on a 1999 F350 Powerstroke.

Had a fellow trucker who lives near it look at it for me today. He took these pictures and confirmed by thoughts of it being a prime truck. I am leaving tomorrow to look at it in person, and if god willing, drive it home.

Not much explaining to do since detailed pictures have been provided by my friend. Never been chiped/tuned, all original parts except for normal things like batteries, Glow plugs, etc...















Problem is I am set on $13,000 and that is all I have with out going into debt, He seems to be set on $15,000. I have the KBB price printed out of $12900 to show him tomorrow. Any tips to get the price down into my range, 13000-13500?

I will prolly end up buying the truck anyway even if he wont budge, but I dont want him to know that. Any negotiating tips? What would you guys do? Its street worth is prolly quite a bit more than $15000 isnt it?

well from what ive seen it has gauges and an aftermarket air intake also.
exhaust might be upgraded too. no pics of it though

id say its definately worth 15k

whats the little white box with the cord running into the fuse panel?
it could be chipped.

i assume your financing? if not cash usually talks,

but that is a low mileage 7.3 for 99 (14 years old) and in Alaska so i am betting kbb is on the real low side for that truck, looks like it already has gauges which is a nice plus.

look nada up to, just so you have 2 sources, that might hep you get closer to your goal,


but 15k is a fair asking price for that truck,

Actually I got a loan from my grandparents. Its sitting in my bank account along with my money so I should be able to just get $$13000-150000 in hundreds.

Stock exhaust. Gauges and intake were just extra precautions he put in. The white box is a thermometer. Ever heard of an 80 year old chipping/tuning?

Yes! I bit the bullet and bought it. He sure was set in stone at 15000. Got him to go with $14500. Now I owe about $4000 on it. which sucks, but oh well.

How did you know I brought it home? Pass me on the road or something? lol

you told us

I R smart


Im an Alaskan(from eagle river) that migrated south , can't pass you unless your in Colorado


figured he was going to be set in stone, your in Alaska so it not like you can just go to the next state over and fine another clean one haha, not to mention he paid $40k+ for it when he bought it new so he needed some money out of it

Unhappy Early 99

Is that and early 99. Looks exactly like mine. I have an early 99 cc,lb,Lariat package. looks clean .I live in Montana and I got mine from Minnesota.with 77,000 on the odometer. bought it from a guy I worked with. He drove it out should have looked it over a bit more ,some rust issues from road salt and found out later on he was pulling semi tractors around the shipping yard to get started, explains why I need a rear end and a new clutch. The thing been nickle and dime me to death but have too much invested to let it go now. I think I paid 14,00 for it 4 years ago.
