Default I wasnít planning on buying another truck...

But somehow, I did!



This truck has been owned by a gentleman in my parents neighborhood for as long as I can remember really. I drove by it yesterday and it had a for sale sign in the window. I figured Iíd stop and check it out. Turns out the guy bought it new in 2000 and it has been his truck since then. It has 100k miles, v6, 5 speed, manual windows/locks, everything works. It has some dings and dents here and there, but is overall a really clean one owner truck that runs and drives really well. I got it for $2800, which I think is pretty damn good. Ordered some new carpet and new headlight lenses and other than that, it needed nothing.

Itís funny because I have a pulley and Tb in the box for the GT500, but Iíve spent the day cleaning this thing up instead, ha.

Those are great little trucks...and you got the best engine/tranny/body style (extended cab). Only thing that would make it better would be 4x4. Is that the 4 liter V6 or one of the earlier ones? My dad had an 85 with a transplanted EFI V6 from a later generation and it was a great little truck.

Iirc, the 6cyl in those is bad about popping the intake gasket. Nevertheless, those are decent mid-size pickups.

Nice find and nice price! Only thing that would make it better is if it was a 4x4.

its the 3.0l. It does fine. I'm kind of happy it doesn't have 4x4 weight because it is already a dog. It is an in town truck for driving to work or to autozone so I'd never use 4x4 anyways.

It is a great little pickup. I've run all over town in it this week.
