I would not buy it just to resell. Chances are you won't make, possible loose on the deal.

Give him a hand at getting rid of it.

Never buy anything you don't mind keeping yourself. Because you're likely to get stuck with it, at least longer than you think.

I've never made any money trying to turn a vehicle.
"Flipping" is the new term, i guess?

Re: '69 GMC Stepside Question..........

Pancakes were meant to flip...not our classic trucks. In todays climate you would most likely loose $$$ unless he gave you the truck for free...and then it's not a sure bet. answer is no. JMHO
