Cummins to Ford conversions are the reason there's a baseline price for any Cummins 12v motor of about $2,000. so the junkiest 12v truck has a baseline value of the Cummins motor.
main disadvantage of 12v Cummins trucks ... interiors are getting dated and not many pristine low miles examples left.
That's why I hopped on my opportunity to purchase a '91 D350 with only 117k original miles. Of course, the interior looks like the truck was made in the 70s and had since been sitting behind someone's barn year round.
