    That's a cool deal on a neat truck. Up here you could tag it historic, no inspections, cheap insurance. DOT would LOVE seeing it used commercially.

    You will end up dumping over 10k into it. Old trucks are a money pit!

    I agree.


    So if you are not a top notch mechanic who has time too repair the truck themselves I would seriously think twice. Scrap value here is about 110.00 dollars per 1000 pounds and I bet that truck will weigh less than 9k pounds so it may break even in that regard.
