    A neighbor is looking to sell a 96 dodge ram 2500 360 with a 5 spd trans and a 7.5 fisher all hydralic system (old style under the hood pully driven pump) the truck only has about 32000 miles on it. The body is in really good condition no rust ect been taken good care od mechanicly driven by an 70 year old man most of its life so it hasnt been beaten on only plowed his driveway. It comes with an in bed camper and a cap for the bed. He said he would take 6500 for the truck you guys think its worth it? Definitly going tlo go take it for a test drive just look it over see what i think but you think its a really good deal or not? Dont really need another truck but i thought it was a decent deal that i just shouldnt turn up. Looking for others apinions
    Thanks

    Take it for a test drive. Check the clutch action. Pull the dipstick and look at it for frothiness. Smell it for a burnt smell. If that all checks out and you don't mind a manual transmission, I'd say "jump on it".
