    Im in Va and looking on Craigslist and a guy has a 88 f250 4x4 with a rebuilt 302 and a 5 speed trans 280k on truck. It has a 1996 western uni 8' plow on it. He is asking $ 3750.00. It looks to be in decent shape. Is it worth it just starting out or should I keep looking

    351w with the C6 auto would get it closer to that price if it's in good shape.

    302 5 speed will be a dog and a pain to plow with. I've done it. And 280k miles? That thing is worn out.
