    Seriously considering selling my '74 K5. I need some ideas as to what it's worth.

    The spec's are -

    '74 K5
    350/TH350/203 D44/12B 3.73 limited slip front open rear
    HD tie rod
    Rear disc brakes (SS lines from hard line out to calipers)
    Extended brake lines
    4" susp lift
    3" body lift
    new tranny
    rebuilt front D44 (new ball joints/bearings/u-joints, etc.)
    New u-joints (all)
    Modified interior - front seats from a '91 Silverado, rear flip seat, new MDF side panels, '87 center console
    15x10 Eagle 589's
    36x12.50x15 TSL Radials (65% tread)
    part time kit in the t-case
    Warn prem. hubs
    New radiator, alternator, starter
    Full 2.5" dual exhaust w/ x-over pipe
    TM SSV shocks (for 8-10" lift)

    Comes with extra full top, new limo tint side windows, full size spare (38 worn down to a 36 :p: )on 15x10 alum. wheel

    No major rust or body damage. Needs AC pump and lines hooked back up and charged and it will work. I have all the parts for it. It worked before I took it out for some eng. work.

    Needs - New windsheild, dent pulled out of pass. door, new top put on, interior carpet, subfloor strengthening.

    I'm thinking of asking $4K and see what happens :confused:

    $4K would take some time to find the right buyer. It doesn't hurt to start there if that is what it is worth to you. To someone looking for that kind of vehicle with those modifications it would be cheaper than buying a stock truck and doing the mods themselves, but it's still not far off of stock. I paid $3K for my nearly stock '79 K10 with 90K original miles about 2 years ago.

    I would say you would get a quick sale for $2-2500 or a reasonable deal in the $3-3500 range. I've seen many 1 ton, crossover, beadlocked, full offroad moded trucks struggle to sell for $4-5000 (usually with $10-17K invested) and end up getting parted out instead. BurbinOR sold his old Blazer for a reasonable price but it took a while for the right buyer to come along.

    Yeah, I can wait. It will only be worth what I want to the right person that is dead set on a clean full top K5.

    Yeah, I got $8200 after a month with only 2 people interested. Guy that bought it almost literally bought it over the PHONE sight unseen. :crazy:

    Well, since I've got a big block on the way for it (Thanks Fordeater!! :laugh: ), I won't be selling it. I will still build it, and wheel it, but I won't be trashing it. Looks like I'll be keeping it forever now. :cool1:

    Yeah, I need to work in the ol' internal tilt-o-meter a bit. :whistle: The funny part is that Candace had gotten so used to it, she'll be reading a magazine or something sometimes! :haha: All she ever tells me is that if I break it I can come crying to her :p:

    It is a joke on the "if you are not trashing it, your not wheeling" mentality ;)
