What's an old pickup worth?

Postby Cal » Mon Mar 21, 2005 1:01 am

Thinking about getting rid of a 1969 3/4 ton 4X4 pickup with 46,000 actual miles on it that we've had since new. Mostly sat inside with a tank loaded on it, has a few "farmer" dents. How would you go about setting a price on something like that? Is it collectible?

I have a brother in law, that has sold and bought trucks on Ebay. He seemed happy with the experience. I believe you can place a reserve bid.

69 - 72 are extremely HOT items now days. Depending on the shape it's in. but with only 46,000 original miles I'd think that'd be a big plus. What size engine does it have.
My mom bought my dad a 69 for christmas in 69...was handed down to me when I got my drivers lisence. OMG I loved that truck. My brother has it now...but I've looked and looked and finally found a 72 last spring to restore. They go anywhere from 1200 up to 20,000 on ebay...but they are also one of the most affordable trucks to restore because chevy has given up the patents and there are now other companies that make replacement body parts. original 396 motors are hard to find and worth quite a bit. i'd do some checkin around...or keep it and restore it , heck with only 46,000 miles on it..it can't be in too bad a shape..good luck

Interesting that Jersey Lily assumed your pickup was a Chevy, while I automatically thought it was a FORD!! LOL!!

What kind is it?

Run an ad in your local paper or shopper and put it out for bid. Do a little homework and check out what they are going for. Have a minimum bid and reserve the right to refuse any and all bids. See what you get. You will probably get a BIG nice suprise!!~and a lot of fun besides!!!

You must not live where it snows! A 4x4 is a valuable commodity around here lately. Bring it up to snowy Saskatchewan, you'll get a mint for it right now! I don't know what we'd do without our rusty but trusty '77 Ford 4x4. It's the only vehicle we own that has been moving lately.

What is an old pick up worth?
To me mine is worth as much as it will cost me to do the same job without it. Folks say " why don't you sell that old truck?"
I tell them that I could not replace it for near what I would get for it and it workes just fine for feeding cows and building fence. So what if it ain't got no AC and no paint much and windshield is cracked and the muffler was long ago replaced with part of an old tube gate and a coat hanger. And what is wrong with uesing a boat cushon for a seat cover. You never know when you may have to swim for it. By the way the dog is trained to ride laying over the hole in the bed to keep stuff from falling out. Now who wants to retrain a dog?
No sir. If it runs good and gets the job done keep her it's cheaper. Sort of like a wife.

It's a Chevy, can't believe I left that out. 350 and 4 speed. Has never had anything major done to it besides maintenance. Thanks for all the input.

My son wants to know if you'd be interested in trading for a 1973 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. :wink:
