Depends a lot on price

If it is FWD, yes.

John - this classic Ford, built tough truck! Body looks in great condition. Service record?
1997 is the last year Ford mfg the beast 460 CI, 7.5L 245 HP engine. Only driven <200 mi/mo!
Very reliable, but avg 14 mpg hwy to 8 mpg to tow camper. Don't know about Ben's 5th wheel.
FYI - DFW retail market for outstanding 1997 F250-360 and <100k is in $3-5K range + camper.
Best wishes to buy your bug out vehicle - from the great SW Texas desert to visit us ALL!

If you like 23 year old vehicles.....go for it.

KW said...

It won't want to pass a gas station without stopping... but heck yes I would buy it. They make a fifth wheel hitch that hides away under the bed so you could still slide the camper in and out.

It looks to be in great shape with low mileage. Depending on the price I would certainly consider it.

Off Grid Research said...

Looks Nice, If a good price you could probably turn around and resell it pretty quick for a decent profit.

No don’t do it. Truck is too old

Larry G said...

don't know what happened to the Toyota but not a fan of old vehicles unless you like tinkering... and buying parts.

John Wells said...

My Toyota is still running fine with 99,000 miles on it. Just contemplating a local deal for a backup vehicle.

Larry G said...

The Ford F-250 is a tough vehicle. Would it do the muddy roads any better than the Toyo?

John Wells said...

The point is to stay OFF the roads when they are muddy.

Larry G said...

Roger that! That 250 is probably right up your ally - it's fairly simple compared to modern trucks - and you're pretty handy with all manner of things others would find difficult...and parts should be available... property taxes on it would be nil... I suspect... are you still livestreaming? for some reason I no longer get notice and I miss it.

John Wells said...

I have pretty much decided to pass on the deal. 14 mpg just doesn't make any sense to me.

John Wells said...

Changed my mind again. I am buying it.

Larry G said...

let the adventure begin... ;-)

Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
