1974 dually, should i buy it?

1974 2wd, chevy dually, regular cab, with a flatbed for a $1000. It needs some work, but it has a brand new goodwrench crate engine mated to a sm465. It needs some work, probably a $1000 to get it looking new again. I'm not sure how the 350 will tow, and what kind of mileage i can expect, but it has no payment book.

How much is a Goodwrench 350? Can you pick up a strong running 350 for $1000? With a 465 attached? With an axle and flatbed you can sell?

You could part that truck out on these boards for more than a grand. If it doesn't tow like you think it should, part it out, keep what you want.

it needs 6 tires. the rust is only bad on the windshield pillars, and it will probably need new doors. Other than that it just needs shined up.
