Then do that...don't sink another nickel into that truck, then go find yourself a truck that you KNOW you will KEEP for the next 5 years. Those goodies I linked to, coupled with sale money from your truck could do some good as a down payment.

Then why even bother wasting money on this truck? Just go to the dealer and get something if you already have a budget for it. If anything get a cheap paint job for it so it at least looks better and sell it for a little more than you could get now.

I believe the Maaco $199 special could probably get him another 1000 out of the truck...assuming in it's current condition it's a $12-1500 truck.

The trouble with the current truck is that 99.5% of people wouldn't touch a pickup with a really old drivetrain platform swapped in. For most people, that truck would have to have a fuel injected 300, 302, or 351w to be 'okay.'

If you could manage to get a nice paint matching done on that bed, you could probably get more out of the truck.
