Hi folks, my name is Glenn and although I know this to be a very vague question... Would truly appreciate any comments or thoughts as I'm at a loss.


I've been settling my late Father's estate and have been considering selling his truck as stated in title but haven't a clue as to a starting point in terms of price. I have googled the truck but haven't arrived at a value as most listed are tricked out -or- complete junk. Some honest pros and cons of the vehicle...


* My Father purchased the truck new in California, where it resided most it's days but has been in S. Illinois for 19yrs and now has very mild body rot in a 2 places.

* I drove the truck a yr ago (ran smooth and mechanically sound) but it's been parked since due to leaky saddle tanks... To put it mildly. Had a 400 small block new that's been replaced with a 350. TH400 tranmission.

* Interior is ok but needs headliner and seat covers.

* Paint is burned from the sun and requires respray. Body is straight.

* All trim, emblems and chrome in great shape, needs a replacement grill, missing the glass of passenger wing window. 

* Clean title, never wrecked, single owner.


Anyways, just looking for ideas on a fair listing price for not only myself but also perspective buyers. I understand photos would be helpful and will try to include some, just not at my Dad's home at the moment... Thanks for any help.

Would love to see photos. I'd suggest looking on bring a trailer, EBay Motors, or some other auction sites.

I hadn't considered looking at or using an auction site, thank you Bill  :)
