I have a line on a 97 F250 extended cab longbox 7.3 PSD XLT with 104,000 genuine kilometers, one owner vehicle with all Ford service records from new.
It never has had any major problems.
The guy wants $10,000 for it and won't budge on price.
No rust anywhere and near new BFG AT's.
Two new batteries.
Oh it is a 4x4 too.
What do you guys think of this deal?
A really really clean truck but is it worth 10 G ?
I want to use it for a work truck.

seems a bit high for a 97 POS ford....

For 10g you should beable to buy something in 2000's

Newer fords are crap when it comes to diesels and this thing is soo clean.
I,m super on the fence right now as i need a truck and i know the current owner through a good friend so the info is genuine on this truck.

Yeah this truck was his toy and he only used it on weekends so hence the low clicks.
Oh and it is a 5 speed too...

the price is on the upper end, but for that low km. the 5 spd. makes it better, and if its real clean and you know the owner.... if you want 300,000 km+ and rat baged ive seen some go for $6-8,000

I got me a f350 desiel crew 4x4 that was a rat bagger with 400,000k's on it for $2,000. That tranny should be good for another 200,000, so If you like it, go for it.

If it's real K on the truck, then it's a good price. At least you can actually work on the 7.3 in that body style unlike the superduty. The ZF is super strong, just don't run it low on ATF, think they had a bulletin to add an extra 1/2 litre Dex to it. Had some flywheel problems in the early DI 7.3's, but a minor issue. I'd say buy it!

[stupid]


if it was 350 then it would have a d60. 250's have d50 ttb junk. i would still say 10 is prolly worth it. i got a 1 owner 97 250 crew with 460 for $3800 with 200,000km. mint in and out. all ford service records. id say its worth it super low km 97 powerstrokes are getting hard to find and they are by far the most desirable older ford diesel and will last forever.
