What would be a 94 F150 XL 4x4 - i6 300cu - 5speed be worth?

Any decent drivable running pickup that's not beat to shit is worth $2500+

I'd much rather have a 302 that can get a B cam, and a decent set of heads for. I've built too many Mustangs that were solid performers
I used to work with a old guy who also owned a farm. He used to haul hay and farm equipment on a gooseneck trailer using his 300 I6 truck - it wouldn't get there quickly, but it always got there.

The 300 six was what it was. It was bad on fuel but who really gave a shit back then? I remember hauling hay with a flatbed truck with one and a granny 4 speed. We would put it in low,set the wheel and we all kicked bales with the truck just crawlin along. I would say good times but it was not. It was nice being able to change plugs with both feet on the ground.

I am rather under impressed with them as well. UPS loved them, used them for years. They are found in airport tugs, wood chippers and generators. A 302 will run rings around a 300, then need a rebuild and run more rings around the 300. But the 300 will keep going while the 302 is being rebuilt. Out of all the industrial uses of the 300 I don't recall it being potent enough to ever make it up to the status of a boat motor.

I think the most redeaming feature is the fact that when they are so wore out that the oil light is on at idle, they can still have years of service left in them.

Long bed I assume? Like CodyY said. Short bed a little more. If you found one and don't want it pm me I might be interested. I'm close to Arkansas.

In Texas add 500 to a grand if it has good working A/C.

Being a knuckle dragging wrench monkey I've bought and sold many vehicles just fixing that very thing.

I'm ok with ol' and gutless i6 300.. Shit, if I can get that much reliability into my Vanagon, I'd be on it like flies on poop.
