    Posting this for interest more than anything, truck will be available for pick up in about 2 weeks.

    1997 Ford F250 Extended Cab Short Bed. Truck is white with Grey TuTone, Grey cloth interior in excellent shape. Truck is SOLID and very clean. Does have typical rust starting above the rear wheels and the very bottom of the tailgate - as of now its minor, only up about an inch-Cab and front fenders do not have any rust. Truck is a Big Block 460 with automatic, runs great - had the top end rebuilt in 2007 and has only had 8,000 miles put on since then. Has a clean 1 owner carfax, no accidents, and has recent repair receipts included.

    Truck only has 106k miles

    Has the upgraded Ford "bullet hole" 16" wheels with decent tires (pass inspection)

    What is currently being repaired:
    - Front Rotors
    - Front Pads
    - Front Calipers
    - Complete Tune up - Plugs, Wires, Cap & Rotor
    - Sanding & Repainting Frame - solid frame, just has surface rust ( will snap pics)
    - Fixing Passenger Exhaust manifold leak

    This truck will be ready to drive daily, should pass inspection without a problem. NEVER PLOWED. I'm looking for a quick sale, price will go up in the spring the longer I own it (more stuff will be repaired, like the bed sides) This is a very clean OBS Truck, if my Dodge Sells before this truck I will be keeping.

    $3000 Pics will be posted hopefully by Friday

    Wife says I have to pass, she wants cash LOL

    I'm in Maine, have family in Mass so I'm willing to meet up if someone is serious. When I get it I'd be willing to take 100 detailed pictures to put the buyer at ease.

    I'm not the type to pull punches selling stuff, I don't want anything coming back to bite me in the a*s so I'm up front about everything I know.

    That is a great buy! I sold a 96 model truck that was just like yours but had 188000 miles on it a bit over a year ago for $3350.00

    Thanks! I'm pricing it aggressively because the misses isn't happy about the purchase LOL. I like the truck a lot, I've always loved those OBS trucks 92-97 Style and if this was a 7.3 it'd be staying for good.

    I appreciate the bump!

    Maine would probably be 6 or so hours but I could bring it to Boston.

    Just got back from taking more pics of the truck. Took it for a spin and it rides smoother than my Dodge which I wasn't expecting. Truck is solid and tight.

    Not very much maybe like 4 or 5"s left on the ground. If you need your drive opened up let me know and I'll do it for you (free of charge).
