    I am only asking $4500.00 for the truck complete with the Western plow setup.

    I figure between the Western Plow, Harley Luxury Blue Paint, Goodyear 10ply Tires and wheels, and the diamond plate accessories I got about that much just in parts alone, so I figure $4500.00 is a fair price for it. Inside and out, this truck is like new!

    Thats a nice looking truck, and I'm not even into Fords! Wish we had 'antique' status like that... are you sure the insurance would cover you in an accident while the truck is working?

    I have 'Historic Vehicle' plates on my Beaumont. They limit the use of the car to car shows, parades, and repair shops.... I still use it for special occasions like weddings and such and keep regular insurance on it. I think a cop would have to be a real ******** to give you trouble for doing that....

    The "Historic" plates are basically used like any other license plates but you never need to go to State Inspection and you only pay a one time fee of $44 for the registration. The antique insurance covers pleasure riding only with a limit of 2500 miles per year and costs about $90.

    If you didn't plow commercially (meaning you just did your own driveway) and needed a pick up as a second vehicle, a truck like this would be ideal because there the yearly cost of owning the truck is only $90, insurance and registration included!

    You could put the Historic plates on it and use regular or commercial insurance and the benefits would be no inspection and no renewal registration fee, or you could put regular or commercial plates on it, you have many options.

    The savings over a two or three year period in registration and insurance could pay for the initial cost of the truck!

    Dan,

    My entire little fleet is old Chevy's, you can't kill them.

    I am not a big Ford fan myself, but this truck must have been ordered HEAVY DUTY from the factory because it is a monster!

    Yeah, it does look pretty darn good. I love a nice clean older truck. Almost too nice to be a plow truck, hate to submit it to the salt and abuse. But not quite old enough to retire it and make it a show truck. I restored a 79 Chevy, frame-off, new drivetrain, but still used it for plowing. I had 35s on chrome wheels in the summer and stock painted white wheels with hubcaps in the winter. I got more compliments in the winter when it looked stock.
    Good luck

    I still have a hard time thinking of it as an antique!

    I guess my best answer would be "What do you have?"...

    A quad 4x4with a plow would be nice...
    A jeep CJ with an Auto Trans for my girl would be nice...
    A beautiful woman would be nice...

    I don't know, what do you have?
