Bought a running Ford 6000 Commander diesel, with turbo, to use for a chore tractor. After a few years on the feeder wagon, it quit moving. Money was tight, and it really wasn't worth fixing. Got a salvage bid of $750, delivered to salvage yard 40 miles away. Yard wasnt too crazy about buying it either, and told me that was best offer, so pretty sure i would have gotten less. I think I only gave $1200 for it to start with.
Got about halfway there and water pump went out on the truck. Pulled in to local salebarn, and hitched a ride home.
Got back the next morning, and found a note under the wiper blade, wanting to buy it. Ended up selling it to a guy wanting engine and tires for $1750!
