    180,000 miles on the truck has matinance records including new motor at 145,000 miles and rebuilt tranny at 160,000 i payed $1500.00. it has ben for sale for quite a wile but i think it didnt sell because of the 454 is a gas hog? i drive 65 mph extremly lite on the pedal and get 15mpg maybe a little more. but its not my daily driver im going to use it for my tree service so it should work out good.

    You are complaining about 15 mpg from a 1 ton truck? That is good for the truck's weight class.
