As Tuff said, maintenance is the key to longevity in any vehicle. Run a carfax or other vehicle history report. Many service facilities now report to carfax when a vehicle has maintenance or repairs done. This will be a good indicator of how well the vehicle has been taken care of. HTH. - Jim

You have to be careful with those engines, if the rings get plugged its 5,000 for a new motor!

Thank you for the information, 300,00 is a long time. I come from the old days of a SBC going 100,00 and out. I am looking for a family & car hauler :-)

Vehicles have come a long way since the 80's. Made to last longer. There is a guy who has one here and the truck is beat to pieces. 450,000 miles original engine and no tear downs to repair it.
