Re: 67 worth fixing?

If it was a county truck and the second owner never drove it there is a good chance that is the actual mileage.I work for a big city that has some older trucks with low miles. Some trucks never leave the facility where they are used.That is a fantastic find!

Heres a little back story... I work at a shop we do ag tire service....I came across this truck about 10 years ago...it was on a farm I was doing a service call at...Well I've wanted this truck for a while ...he started wanting 1000 for it then it went to 700 then 500 now finally 200...he just wanted it more or less outa the way now...glad you guys talked me into buying it...in afraid im becoming a addict....today I went to the local junkyard (all cars/trucks are pre 1980) to see what he had for this truck...to my surprise there's 18x 67-72 trucks for me to pick parts from...or buy as a whole...I bought alot of goodies mainly for my 72 c10 though...looking forward to the 67 build though will keep yall posted

P.s I never bought it because I thought it wasn't worth fixing I thought swb>lwb v8>l6 c10>c20 4wd>2wd(in 3/4 tons)

Re: 67 worth fixing?

i may be coming late...but ANY 67-72 with a cab that isnt rusted around the drip rail is worth 200 plus all day long...make it 67-68 and add a few if the front clip is good.

Well I did look at this closely nothing visible I pushed on it and the windshield seal to see if there was any cancer behind it...it appears to be in good shape.....



Btw the windshield looks wonky cause it snowed today

Re: 67 worth fixing?

Good score! It’ll clean up nicely.
Keep us posted
BTW, I paid $500 for almost the same truck (68 c10 long step) back in 89, and it was in worse shape.
