    I have a chance to pick up an 80's something K5 blazer. It's fairly local (about 25 miles away) and from a co-worker who will help tow it home. It has a 305, 700R4 trans w/ (he thinks) a 208 t-case. It has 10b axles front and rear. Missinge on of the doors and the entire hog house is gone. Also, there's no front driveshaft. He hasn't had the motor running since he bought it, but said when he bought it, it had been a running motor. It's sat for about a year at least.
    I know what he wants for it, but I don't know what it's worth. It'll come w/ some well worn roller wheels/tires. He'll help haul it home for some beer. Tell me what the whole thing is worth, and what I could part it out for... aapproximately?

    I figured I could get $50 for the front 10b, at least. $100 for the 305 if I can get it running. $150 for the 700R4 and another $100 for the 208. Get maybe $50 for the rear springs. Scrap the body for a few extra bucks.
    Do those prices sound reasonable? I think they're just a little low, I'd want to move the parts ASAP to make my money back on the buy.

    Not worth practically any effort, IMO.

    I want the frame out of it for my project. I want to be able to make my money back out of it though.

    It may take a little time, but you can sell the entire drivetrain eventually and oughta be able to get a decent amount of $ for it. Doors, hood, glass etc can be worth something also if in really good shape. Tires and wheels could score some cash also...

    What it's worth or what somoeone is willing to pay for it, is really hard to say. here is some stuff on ebay that my Dad is selling, and at the time of this post nobody has bid on it.

    A mounth from now you could sell the same thing and get less or more for it. I just deppends who is looking and needs it at the time. I hope the truck ends up being a good deal.

    He'll sell it to me for $275, otherwise it's "not for sale" though.

    I just told the guy I'll take it. Working on getting a trailer to get it home this weekend. If so, it'll be up for parts as soon as it hits my driveway.
