If I say what I actually paid for it, it will taint the "what it's probably worth" responses.
What's important is you feel you got a good deal therefore you'll enjoy the truck. And it looks to be a very nice starting point for what ever you decide to do with it. My 40 was not that nice when I bought it in the 90's
