Question from a new guy.
Morning all. Found this forum by accident looking for info about 7.3 Power Strokes. I'm in the market for a crew cab Ford (my dang kids legs won't quit getting longer and the F150 extra cab just won't cut it anymore), and came across a '97 F350 crew cab with an 8' box. It's 4x4 with a 7.3 in it. 141K miles.
My dad had a 97 F250 with a 7.3, and it was a great truck, but a dingbat in Wyoming hit him, and it was a total. It didn't have nearly as many miles as this one does, but I have heard that the 7.3 is a tough motor, with a long life expectancy.
Body is straight, paint isn't too bad, interior smells, well, like butt, but over all, it seems a good truck.
I can get it for $11,500.
What should I look for, is this too much, run away?
Thanks for your time.
