    Hi folks,
    I'm looking at buying a 1992 F450 with a flat deck dump (PTO drive), the truck has 200000km (120000 miles) and has a 460 gas engine. The guy is asking $12,800 Canadian pesos ($8500 American dollars)for it. Does this sound like a good buy, and are there any particular problems I should be looking for?
    Thanks in advance,
    Keith

    If the truck is a 5 sp, watch for tranny problems. Over drive is notorious for going out, very expensive to replace.
    Also it will be very hard on fuel. The price seems about right.

    Previous to the 99 model year ford made a 15000 gvw cab and chassis model truck that was designated the Super Duty, also referred to as the F450.
    Started about 87 or 88 and had that placard till 97. In the 99 model year ford called everything truck from the 8600 gvw F-250 through the F-550 a Superduty.

    Yes Gm will have a 16 17 and 19K chassis available early next year in 2wd, and about 6-8 months later in 4wd.The line is classified family 2 by Gm people. The cab and nose will look very similar to the Bruin show truck.
