    Looking at an 83' Chev with the 6.2 diesel wesport , 130hp wow. Does anyone still run these?

    The truck only has 110,000 on it and the guy says its an OD tranny. New body parts from Texas, $2200.

    Worth a crap?

    Sounds like a 1/2 ton truck. They are good just low on power. They have low tq so they plow good just no speed demon on the roads

    For got to mention its a 1 ton.

    Also I did find a 6.5 turbo setup (non intercooled) locally for $200. They are saying it was on a 6.2

    If it's a 1 ton it will have a 400th or the 4 spd hd stick unless someone swapped it out.
    Still a good truck possibly if done right and it's in good shape.
