    I know the guy who ran it the 136,000 miles. He got the flatbed thinking he would need it but never really used it for more than putting trashcans on it. The body and everything looks brand new, its not a re-paint. He asking about 3500.00 dollars and at 16 years old and trying to go big my budget isnt a lot.

    If it is your budget with no help from the folks then go for it! I have an 88 chevy 1500 with a 305 V8 AT, with over 200,000 mi on it. It runs just fine! I pull a 16ft trailer and it gets the job done. As a first vehicle I think it would be a good deal and will last you until you can purchase another. I am 18 and recieved my truck on my 16th birthday. Just do it!

    I have heard good things about Chev's big six and you can buy brand new goodwrench motors cheap, look in CHEVY HIPERFORMANCE magizine for Chevy dealers selling goodwrench motors I think thier under $1600.

    landscapingpoolguy, is that a rust whole on the rear bumper? Not trying to knock the truck, just curious why it rusted. Did this truck do salting?
