Since you didn't put a price I assume you're getting it for free. That's a great price.

Re: 85 international 6.9L auto/OD good buy????

A good friend of mine had a farm truck with a 6.9. Many people don't like that engine but he did. I thought it did pretty good. He got 300k+ out of it before he parked it. The engine basically out lived the rest of the truck.

That seems like a fair price as long as it's not rusted to hell.
