My son is going to be moving back to College Station is right at a month from now.  He is wanting a basic transportation pickup.  Any brand would do but he will need to drive it to work, assuming he can get a job.  Budget is said to be a grand or two.

Anybody got anything that will run for sale?

I surf CL a lot and I always see 2nd gen Dodge pickups for $1,000-2,000.

Wow, that looks like a little more than basic transportation.  Wes is considering...

A little more basic and cheaper.

Or if he is a Ramcharger guy

Or maybe a diesel guy

That last link is a scam Richard. No way in the world it would go for that unless its a down payment.

Eric,  I tried to contact somebody with a CL Cummins in San Antonio but it was too good to be true for the price.  In the meantime I think I have a cheby for him right here in CS that we can drive without having to do much work on.

BTW, there is a one ton cheby at Navasota with a Corrections Office Command Center in an auction that closes Friday.  The truck has 70k miles and the the ambulance body has a cot, a table and a captain's chair.  Only has $500 bid on it as of now.
