Re: advise

15K sounds like a great offer- like he said, sometimes if you wait too long they retract their original offer

I am going to ask this and please don't be insulted and if do not want to respond, so be it. You say and I quote " We've had a good firm offer @ 15K, 20K will make the family happy." Why is the family stuck at 20K?

Re: advise

Just checked my local area & if you can get $15k USD for that I've got a few similar low mileage original & restored trucks here for a fraction of that price to flip in your market. So if the family doesn't care about old trucks or keepsakes then just take the money and run as fast as possible! Don't delay & lose out on a fool & his money!

Re: advise

The survivors continure to go up in value. There is no NADA book for them . It is what the buyer is willing to pay. Each truck sets its own value dependent on the truck . I would not list one ebay unless . Or start it at the lowest price you are willing to take. Even then you run the risk of non paying, deadbeat buyers. A truck like this to get top dollar needs to be exposed to as much of the market as you can stand . Hemming, car trader books , this forum , online. The more exposure the higher the price. The higher the price the longer it will take to sell . But it will sell . I do not fee you family price is out of line. I would rather have a truck like this than some bondo truck filled with poor fitting China parts . Good luck with your sale.

Re: advise

Hello, Keep the truck and give the family there cut on 20K. Everybody's happy, they get there money and you get the truck. This truck should be that special. Put it away until you need it than make it roadworthy.
