Look at this fixer upper

2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty extended cab 4x2

6.0L diesel, AT, AC, PW, PL, etc. , engine is not running ( high pressure oil pump issues, no fuel pressure at start-up), would make a cheap fixer or great parts truck. Call.... $4250.00

The price seems attractive so I thought I'd see what folks think. I'm very new to the idea of a 6.0L and maybe this is a good base price to start out with? I don't know any more about it than whats on the add.

Not worth it IMO..

Engine problems AND body damage... All that when a truck like that is only worth 10k finished...

Too much hassle for saving $1k

OK, think truck minus engine then start deducting for body and interior if they are not good. And it doesn't 4X4.

If it really is the HPOP would the whole engine be toast?

Not worth a penny more than $3,000. Money wise that is. Now you would have to budget the money it would take to fix it up your probably looking at approx 9k-10k total to get it where it needs to be. That's with the price of the truck.

When buying something like this I believe a person should PLAN on replacing the whole thing... and if it ends up to just be the HPOP then your in luck... But if you plan for 1k in repair and the cylinders are shot... you will be screwed with a 4-6k bill

Yeah I would see how much driveable ones cost in the area that are the same config.. (2x4 extra cab, ect) and start deducting engine and body... also count in labor $$ even if your doing it yourself! you don't work for free do you?

Then when its all said and done you should be able to be $1500+ cheaper then anything on the market... why would you go through ALL this hassle and it costs you 10k when you could have went to the dealer or a private party and got one driveable for 10.5k Does my reasoning make sense to you?

Hope it helps

Thanks guys, I'd be more tempted if it was a 4X4 with a stick. The thought occured to me in the way of -- Why not buy one cheap that needs work and then cover the things that need to be covered anyways--. But I can see it has to be lower to make sense.

Man if that was a regular cab I'd be all over it and make it into a RCSB. That body damage is a pretty easy repair. There is a 101k engine in the classifieds that needs injectors, FICM, and maybe a turbo that the seller is keeping for spares. He is oferring it for $2k. Offer $2500 for the truck and work from there.

X2 I would buy it. But I could have the body fixed and the hole truck painted for less than $500.(helps having auto body guys as friends) I also have a junk yard near by that sells any motor for 199 with a 30 day warranty. So look around at your resources it may be cheaper than you think to fix it.
