Used F350

A friend of mine is selling his truck.
It's an F350 with a dump and plow setup.
1989 with 75,000 miles and new transmission.
He wanted $6,000 for it.
I haven't been able to shop around, but is this a fair price?
Any thoughts would be great.
Thanks

Spend a lil money and have a shop look it over for you and write down what all they find. Where I work we charge 1/2 to an hour labor to look one over and give an estimate if any repairs are needed. Its a lil money spent now, that may save you MAJOR bucks down the road.

sounds like a good price since trucks are getting real pricey for some reason.

I agree on taking it to a shop, i have a friend that is a mechanic and he looks vehicles over for me before i buy them. helps out knowing whta it needs before you buy it.
