Last week I bought this 1976 Ford F-250 4-wd, gratefully it isn't a highboy. I really think I stole it after searching for another truck.

Body and paint a bit rough but very little to almost no rust.

Once I put my camper on my other truck I no longer have a PU. I've only taken the camper off of my truck once since March and I'll be using thru the end of November.

The truck needs a lot. Its been sitting outside for nearly 20 years. Started and driven a few miles about once a year.

It has a 390 2-bbl out of 1966 Mercury Monterey. Runs pretty good after giving it a tuneup.

Replaced a bunch of stuff like the grill, battery tray, dash pad, seat cover, brake/clutch pedal pads and some other misc stuff. Still have lots to go.

My new tires arrived Monday so I took some steel wool to the Dodge chrome wheels and then had the tires mounted and balanced.

I like it. [emoticon]


First thing I said to myself was, those on Dodge RAM wheels!

I got another offer today from a guy who wants to buy my truck.

I guess I'm going to have to get a "Truck Not For Sale" sign for it. [emoticon]

Those look like 1990's Dodge wheels.

I believe they are late 80s early 90s.

They were on the truck when I bought it and they cleaned up real nice and I think they look great so I'm keeping them on it. [emoticon]

Besides, I was having a difficult time finding factory 16" wheels.

Definitely not an 80's rim. I think they're from the 2nd gen Dodges starting in '94.

Or, you can give him a ridiculous number it would take to buy it. My dad bought and sold boats when he was still with us. He finally got one that he really loved and enjoyed fishing out of so he kept it. There was a guy up the street that would stop and try to buy it periodically and dad would always tell him it wasn't for sale. The guy kept saying "What will it take?", so finally dad told him a number that was probably 3X the value. Of course the guy said "It's not worth that much." Dad simply said "It is to me." Guy never stopped again.

That's awesome. I really have no idea what it would take.
It would have to be enough money that I could buy a lot newer and nicer truck for sure so that's never going to happen.

I get offers on my Mustang somewhat often. One was $14k in cash unsolicited. Don't think I would have the cojones to knock on someomes door with a bag full of money asking if a car is for sale. What a idiot.


Like the boat give them a number that is high enough if they say Yes your walking away with more than you thought you could ever get.
