Possible bad a** truck purchase?

I am going this weekend to look at a 56 Dodge Shortbed stepside with a 383 / auto in it out of a Roadrunner. It also has the 8.75 posi rear. It is in hot rod black primer with a redone interior. Cash is $2900 asking. Good idea? Bad idea? I'm thinking clean it, tune it, fix any problems, add Vintage Air and drive it. This would make the S-10 v-8 conversion no longer a future activity (I'll sell the S-10). Anyone know of any problems (other than mechanical) with these trucks? Websites for them? I think it would look good next to the 57 in the garage.
