Looks legit, test drive first e-brake cable could be a easy fix.

In the bed appears to be inner fender shield thing.

This.

Looks like a pretty good little truck. If I were you though I'd try to spend the least amount of time in that hood as possible.

yes Ideally i'd want a duratec 4. I figure my 03 xl with the 7' bed, automatic, & 3.0 could be my workin' truck and this could be my playin' truck, lol. the deal breaker for me would be whether or not it has Speed control!

Also it has not been licensed since Sept. 2010 (according to license plate) that would concern me. The way they talk they have been driving it around. However unless these are old pictures, how long has it been possibly just sitting?

Well, the owner got back to me, he said it does not have Speed Control, dang! Oh well. Like I've said before, I'm fine with regular cab, manual windows/locks/mirrors, basic radio, solid rear window, even no tachometer, but Speed Control IS my deal breaker!! A/C is a must have for me too.
