    What do you guys think about a 1989 Ford single axle dump truck with 429 gas?
    Looking for something to use on a site only for a year or so....paid 6K cnd....plus 1K to safety....sound like an ok deal? I know I will make the purchase price back in the next couple of months on the site, but dont know much about dump trucks!

    The 429 is a good engine but heavy on the fuel so if you only use the truck for a site truck it shouldn't be too bad. You start hauling on the road with it the truck is going to burn so much fuel you will have a tough time making money with it.

    Is the truck a LN8000 ?
