    i need opinions from everyone

    the guy i am buying the '80 C-20 pickup from on tuesday has a whole crap load of sheetmetal he was going to put on the truck


    he has good doors, a hood, fenders, and a tailgate, and some other stuff i think,
    and a set of nice stock GM ralley 8 lug 16" wheels and rings(probably later model years ones) with nice stock size highway tires with tons of tread on them, the truck is wearing old painted factory 16.5" junk right now,


    what would be fair in your opinion, for all of it, packaged deal ? so i can offer him, he says its 1,000 dollars of stuff(but he isnt intending to sell it all for that much though)

    but im thinking up to 300 tops, in which i wouldnt give most likely

    and to be truthful i think all id really want are the wheels and tires anyways lol.

    id probably give him 100 for those, if i could coax him into selling them separately,

    what do you think- what would you do/say/try ?

    thanks

    There's alot of value to the stuff you mention, if they're in as good a condition as you say. Honestly, I'd be comfortable with $400 for all that.... If you want, start out at $300, but be happy if you can get it all for about $400.

    Second that. A front clip will cost you 300.00 from the scrap yard. Add doors at 50 a piece. Add the rims and figure 400-500. Then haggle off a hundred and you get 400.
