HELP need advice on buying my first isuzu npr work truck!!

Hey guys my buddy is selling a 1996 isuzu NPR flatbed truckwith 2 ft sides. It is 12 ft bed and the truck only has 58,000 MILES!!! It is automatic runs great. It is the turbo deisel. It is in very good condition for a 96 I give it a 7.5 out of 10. Based of this info what do you think a truck like this is worth?? Oh and it is a single cab as well. I am looking for a work truck with a bed and can tow and this looks perfect Its a dually and is in good condition.

SO guys what would you appraise this at?
Thanks

I purchased a 03 Isuzu off of Craigslist -Atlanta with auto-diesel-flatbed for $10,800. It was used for pressure washing and had 73k miles on it when I bought it.

I wouldn't even consider a pre-99 isuzu. They got the new tranny in 99, so you can plan on replacing the transmission at 100k at $3k. I would hope he is around 4-6k.

Reallu just the transmission is the only problem on the older moduls. But even then you can buy a salvage tranny for 1-2k if yours ever goes out. Everything else is pretty darn tough.

I have never really had problems out of the ones I have had. I just try to sell them when they get up to 200-250k because the motor isn't as bulletproof as others.

Oh and Isuzu's are not great at pulling. They are better hauling their load on the bed.

your area might be a lot different with prices but in NJ the truck you describe would sell between 10 and 15k.

i own several pre 99 npr's (all with over 100k miles, diesels) and the transmissions are fine.

that price is a steal unless theres something major wrong with it. $5000 would get you a 1990-95 npr with over 100k and minor work needed...
