I know of a guy selling what appears to be a 1964 F250 4x4 pick-up truck for 1500 obo. Its in pieces now-but its still a rolling chassis/body, but I was told that it has all the parts to be a running truck. The guy selling it took it apart to restore it I think, and the owner's before that used it for snow plowing, farm work. I would be interested if it weren't for the 2 jeeps sitting in chuck's yard/driveway-in pieces. Just curious if 1) anyone is interested in the truck, 2) what you think of it being an off-roader, or 3) interested in buying my cj5 parts so I can buy this truck. I've got pics (taken in the dark) that I'll load as soon as i can. (It's located at centerbrook, IN-between Martinsville and Mooresville on St.Rd. 67.)

i don't know what divorced means-but the transfer case is still on the manual transmission, with both sticks sticking through the floor.

divorced means either there is a driveshaft between the tranny and the transfercase,

-or-

you are living in a small apartment or on your brothers couch, cause the biotch got everything.

I'm more inclined to think the former.

I personally would offer him $800 for it. No more than $1000. Because you are going to put out alot of money in this whatever you do. And do you know for sure that everything works?

there is no engine where its sitting, so all I have is the friend of the guy's word-who said it was running. I forgot to look at the odometer, but it sounded like it had few miles, because the guy kept saying it was original miles... i don't know-it'd be one of those buy, but not sure if its ok to trust kind of trucks....but aren't most truck buys that way?
