Cal, 'bout 5K. Those 67 - 72 chevs are hot. If the dents are few, a good home cleanup would raise the value to 6K to 8K. Go on ebay and you won't find anything like what you have. Ya always hear bout that old pickup some rancher p****d off, don't be that guy.

Cal, realizing there is a world if difference between your old low miles treasure and a wrecked '98 Dodge dually, we put an ad for our pickup in the Green Sheet and while we didn't keep track, I'm reasonably certain we got at least 40+ replies.

We started getting calls the day the ad came out, and finally sold it a couple of weeks later. Many were hoping for a restorable cab. Not to be..... after a run-away, and crashing into a 6' deep creek channel with a loaded caker behind the cab! We didn't want to cut it up, either, and got a buyer who came and hauled the whole thing away. We may have priced it a bit low at $4200.00.

Good Luck!

MRJ

Soapweed, your son needs a good old pickup to go ALONG with his Coupe DeVille. Multi-vehicle insurance discount. :wink:
