It was, only oily behind the ps pump, & near the oil fills. 63K miles, from Georgia area.That's an extremely clean engine.
11 years ago, you are still just a kid,you have plenty of time to be real choosey, don't get a junker, you will regret that.Love the truck! I had a '50 3 window with a 216 and 3 speed when I was a freshman in highschool... (about 11yrs ago).. sold it cause I was dumb and broke. All original... ran and drove but needed a master cylinder... still kick myself.
Going to be watching this as I've wanted to get another one and do the same thing.
Good luck man!
