I was setting at the computer at 2pm when I spied an ad for a '95 Ford F150, 300 6, 5 speed manual, 4x4 for $1,500 and the following ad was a '95 same thing except 2 wheel drive for $1,000, :D so I called the fellow 2.5 hours North of me. We chatted for a spell about the trucks when he told me he also had a '86 4x4, 300 6, 4 speed manual. :shock: :shock: That raised my attention level to a 10 as I love them trucks. :oops: So I asked what he'd take for all three if I was there in three hours. He said, "2,700" and i said I would bring $2,500 in cash and he wouldn't have to deal with anyone else, He agreed much to my surprise :shock: :shock: :shock: . I took the wife and boys up there and was pleasantly surprised at how much better in shape than I thought they would be. :shock: :shock: He kinda/sorta wanted to renege on the deal a mite :roll: but 25 $100 bills got the deal done. We dropped the '86 off at my oldest boys place which was only 14 miles away as my 14 year old can't legally drive on the roads but he made it there fine. Then off to Vermillion and I was driving the 2 wheel, Bobby's 4x4 needed gas so we pulled into the UFA cardlock and a farmer there came over saying how he was looking for a long box truck with no extended cab for his farm work.[Same reason I wanted the 4x4]. I told him for $1,600 and $100 for the gas I had put in he could have the blue 2 wheel drive. I drove him to 4 ATM's while he gathered cash and now have the two trucks I really wanted for $830 as I'd only put 30 litres in it.

This one sold.

Bobby say's the red one drives like a dream and everything works. The 86 purrs with it's carburetor but will require a $35 rear window. Man I like a good day. :D :D

Your wheeling and dealing always impress the "L" out of me TT.

Congrats on your deals and trucks.

Rick these trucks with full 8' box's and regular cabs are getting hard to find. Farmers like them cause they can put a fuel tidy tank in and still have room for a pallet of chemical/seed in. She was a quiet ride with the wife after I bought three in one go I'll admit. :lol: :lol:
Swamp he was my hero and I'll admit to leading part of my life like him.

I picked up an 88" F150 a couple weeks ago. $1200. 160k miles. Had to weld a spot one the frame(I know your not supposed to, but we've done it several times without issue). New tie rods
and need to adjust the steering some. But should be a good wood hauler and trapping rig. Can go a lot of places my old 2wd ranger couldn't. Putting spring assists on now, if I can find some bleeping U bolts that will fit.

There is a place about an hour drive from here that does. I am on may way there today. $8.50 ea. But they will be good ones. Thinking I may also put a Timbren suspension enhancement on it.
This is going to be a wood truck and also have a 5th wheel hookup mounted in it for my trailer.

Actually there is good money to be made in vehicles. Like any other commodity, buy low and sell high. :wink: :lol:
