Diesel truck, should I buy it???

I have a chance to buy a non running diesel truck, its a 1996 F-250 4x4 extended cab, long bed with the 7.3 turbo diesel. I have not seen this truck but its my neighbors best friends dads truck. He (my neighbor) said its in very good shape, compared it to his personal truck, even if it's close to his truck it is in veeery good shape.

From the story I got from my neighbor is the guy was driving it stopped at the fuel pumps and filled up, got into the truck and it was crank no start. Towed it home and now bought a new F150 truck. wants to sell the Diesel truck for $2000.00

The only down side is the truck has 260k miles on it. Mostly highway miles and very well maintained.

What do you guys think of this deal? Is it too high of mileage? What about the price?

Steve
