Help with an add

Hey guys, pretty new here. Found a truck in my local classifieds. I'm no expert so I was wondering if you could
Help me identify if it's worth my time and money

Looks like a good pickup.  Value really depends on where you are located and what the market is like there.  What year is it?

Looks like you need to charge your phone.

It's an 85, the interior is really clean. No rips or tears in the seat.
It's 3250 and the only on where I am

Seems OK if it runs and drives all right.  Kind of built already.

I am a student so half built is okay with me as I don't have the money for big upgrades

 I say make them an offer of like $2,500 and be willing to go up to maybe $3,000 if you have to and you really want it.  Really great deals require patience.  Every few years I come across something for just a few hundred bucks that is almost a runner and takes almost no effort to get going.  They seem to have to be immobile at the time of sale to be really cheap though.

Someone with an '85 probably knows it's kind of special just because it's an '85.
