    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.

    Ive owned two of those only with the 466. With the 444 and it doesnt dump, that old, NO WAY. Yes its worth that in scrap but thats about it

    See what insurance would cost and go for it, hard to loose on that deal.

    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.
