I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
It's a 7.3 IDI with the older ATS 088 turbo setup... not worth the $500 asking price.

My credo
A legend to the old man, a hero to the child...
1-6.9/ 7.3 IDI with a turbo.
2- Someone grafted a 92-96 front end on (im assuming) a 87-91. The ext cab split windows are a dead giveaway.

I'm more interested in the 78/79 in the background.
