I am looking at a 460 for sale in Sunnyvale California just south of San Francisco. Since I am in Alaska - I was wondering if someone on the list might be able to do a test drive for me and do some judicious eyeballing of the truck.

Thanks,
Adam

I might be able to check it out. What's your time frame? Go ahead and e-mail me and we can see what the options are. Tonight, as short noticed as it is, might actually work well for me.

That said, my value would be for evaluating rust and some driveline stuff like vibrations/swivel balls/wheel bearings, and general condition. I don't know much about motors to know what to look for there other than clean starting without white smoke, smooth shifting. I generally think it's wise to get a vehicle up to freeway speeds to check for "surprises" under power and braking.
