craigslist find...is it worth it?

found this truck tonight on CL and figured it would make a sweet drag truck. the guy told me he did all the work himself and owns a machine shop so im assuming he knows enough to do things right.

what do y'all think its worth? does it sound reasonable?

IMO no. BO headgaskets, K&N filter, and it looks awfully dirty under the hood. And that price is not a steal by any means. At least not down here.

Too much, like F2-Fifty said, Black onyx gaskets, no, factory gaskets and zeroed heads would be much better.

They all fail even with ARP Studs and machined heads. Do a search there is a lot of people that have been through this.
