Hello, I guess this right place for this question. I need to buy a good used pickup (preferably a Ford) and my pastor's son has one I'm considering. It's an 87 Ford F250 extended cab with a 5.8l engine and an automatic trans. It has 98,000 actual miles on it! When the son bought this truck a couple of years ago it was sitting in a barn (I don't know for how long though). My pastor said it needs a new solenoid switch and it also has an oil leak (which he thinks is comming from the oil pan gasket). My question is would this be a good buy? Any thoughts would be welcome. My pastor is not particularly keen on selling the truck to someone he knows because the old saying "you don't do business with family/friends" but it's his son's truck. I would have a mechanic look it over just to be safe. Please help any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
