Here's the rest of the pics i took , And your advice is very valued on this what do you think would be a good price or a price that i should walk away from. I don't know if it runs or even if it has any antifreeze in it and might be busted. So i do appreciate any info / advice you guy's can give me on this truck. And thank's to all that respond and try to help me with this.

Sweet

Hey Cole, Looks like you've found a sweet one. I'd be on that like stink on poo-poo. 455 buick engine pre '74 or '75 cause of the point distributor. Can't tell about the transmission but if it was a matching pair it's likely a turbo 400. I like the bucket seats. If if runs good, I'd probably give up to $5k. It appears solid. Check it with a small magnet for bondo on all the bottoms and check tops of the headlight rings. Good find. olnolan

Thank's Olnolan, Yes i think it's a real good find also. I wasen't sure on the engine i was to excited looking at it and for the life of me couldn't think what it was But yep it's seems pretty solid i did notice a few spots around it down low on one of the front fenders and alittle on the tailgate.
The guy that has it told me he wants to make alittle more then what the guy owed him but i will have to wait and see where it goes. He did tell me that he will sell it to me as soon as all the other stuff is done, so i can have a title for it. Man i do hope it works in my favor really like to have it, He said he won't sell it to anyone that he think's is going to part it out or something.
But you and i both know that most of the time money talks and bs walks right. I'm really excited but i don't want to get my hopes up to much though. Been looking at a few others also but shoot this one is like 10 miles from my house.

shifter

Hey Cole, Where is the shifter? Nolan
Oh, it could be a 350 4 barrel, but I'd suspect its a 455 from the photos, it sure looks like the 455 in a Riviera I had.

Yep your right Nolan, And they look so much alike but i think i see 5 valve cover bolts if that's the case it should be the 455 then, I think the 350 had 6 bolt's holding the valve cover.

nice find eloc. i'd wave 2k in front of his eyes and see what he says.
you can always go up, mention; rusty here and there, bastard engine, broken window

floors look good from what you posted, typical rust around headlite
if you haven't looked yet, you can buy anything you want for a TF truck
repop rear glass is 250 + shipping, 15 yrs ago they were 600

i'd get a clear title before paying a dime,
otherwise it's a parts truck (unless your creative)

if you pass on it, post owner info here... for dbm

This is going to sound a little crude , but like olnolan said take a magnet and go over the entire truck looking for places where the magnet won't stick (thick layers of bondo) . Also take a ice pick or pocket knife with you and where there are rusty blisters in the paint like inside the cab above the windshield check and see if its surface rust or rusted all the way through (rotted out) see if the sharp object goes all the way through. It looks like the bed is raised up a couple of inches.
IMO it dosen't look like something you could get running and drive, it looks like a full body off / frame up project and that takes ALOT of time and MONEY. I wouldn't pay much for it , let us know how much he wants for it.
Sorry about being so negative, Gene
