How much should I spend on a 97 Cheyenne with a 6.5?

This is how the ad reads:
1997 CHEVROLET CHEYENNE CREWCAB PICKUP, 4X4, 6 CYL TURBO POWER DIESEL ENGINE, AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, MI: 62948, (RUNNING)

The truck looks good. It has a vinyl floor mat and vinyl seats. The body looks good just has faded paint. I will most likely have to have this shipped so that has to be figured in. So, what you all think? I have never owned a truck like this and I have no idea what it is worth.

It is a 6.5, the person who wrote the ad made a mistake.

The seller ended up wanting a lot more than we could afford. So, I guess I am not going to be the new owner.

There have always been great bull riders but when you look at those two, they weren't just bull riders, they were stars."

My wife went down there and tried to haggle, but it did not do any good.
