Default Considering Buying 1987 D150

Hey guys, I've been looking for an older Dodge truck for my first ever vehicle project. Found an 87 D150 today that I may be interested in. The odometer only shows 53,950 miles, it's the 3.7L, long bed, manual trans. Body is in good shape as far as dents but is scuffed all over as if it was driven constantly through brush or something. Engine runs pretty rough, and I think the clutch may be slipping. I know it is a vague description, but what would you say it may be worth? Also, are there any specific things I should look out for that would be hard or expensive to fix up? Let me know if you need any questions answered in order to answer mine. Thanks for any help!

Two things will survive a direct nuclear impact, cockroaches and the Mopar slant 6. Sounds like ignition or carb issues. Worth? Tune up $200. Paint job $800. Having a truck that just won't EVER quit? Priceless.
