Getting a new truck

588 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Slow69Chevelle
Looking at a new truck soon. Found one locally its a 91 D250 Cummins, non I/C, 2WD, Auto 3 speed with 143K. He is asking 2500 and it has a banged up front fender but he is including a straight no rust fender. Just wondering if this seems like a good price and if theres anything to look out for. Truck has never been modded.

Id try and get it for 2000. See what gears it has because you probably could get a 307 gear ratio rear eng pretty cheap. Throw in a 366 spring to get your rpms up to 3200 and drive it.

is the 3 speed a decent auto transmission?
The 727 3 speed is a decent trans and there is lots of mods you can do to it to strengthen it. However verify what gears are in the rear end. It should have 3.07's but if somebody has changed them out for 3.54's or 4.10's, your truck will be screaming down the freeway. If you don't like the auto idea, then pass on this truck and look for a 5 speed.
