F250 1970 390 block V8???Buy or not to buy?

Hello all,
I'm looking at the above truck to buy tomorrow, its the 390 block, V8 F250 1970. All original, no Canopy, Any pointers??? This is my first one.
A few questions - is it going to be realllly bad on gas??
Is it air care exempt?? I understand the engines are solid, so am I getting a deal at $600??????
Any comments would help. many Thanks

390's get about 10 M.P.G. at the best of times. Maybe 15 but not likely. 390 is a little
small for a f250 but will do the job. It has a " baby back C6 " in it so put in an extra
transmission cooler. The hood hinges,cab corners,and cab mounts rot out so keep an eye on them. You have 6 bolt 16 inch tires. Not cheap. that alone is worth $600.00.
The motor not running is worth $1000.00. your getting a good deal. Good luck.
