    My K10 doesn't get used much, so I'm thinking about selling it off. This one:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    1983 K1500 LWB, 6.2/700R4/NP208. Transmission was professionally rebuilt 20,000 miles ago (corvette servo and shift kit). I replaced the c-code intake with a 6.5TD intake. The bed was replaced due to rust issues. There is some bondo on the doors and one rear fender. The paint is 10' quality. Rear axle was rebuilt after the G80 died, and the passenger-side fuel tank was replaced. And other routine repairs. Otherwise it's in stock configuration. I bought the truck from the second owners, who had bought the truck in the late 80s. Aside from my two trips last summer, the truck has spent its life on the street. Truck has been kept in good working order. The low coolant light is broken, but I will be fixing that soon. Everything works the way it should aside from the air conditioning (have never tried using it).

    Yes, Brian & Griff, the wheels now match. I'm sure that doubles the resale value. :rolleyes:


    So what is this hunk worth? My biggest hesitation in selling it is that I don't think it's worth much to the market.


    :thinking:

    Probably worth a lot more there than here.
    $1500 truck here, maybe less


    Question is also how useful the cash would be if you sold it

    Cash is always nice, but not in dire need right now. Storing it is also not a problem. Which is why it's still hanging around. If it's not worth much, I have no incentive to get rid of it. It is a backup vehicle, even if it isn't a family hauler. I'm just tired of things sitting, it's only a matter of time until a mouse finds that truck... :doah:

    You could always list it on eBay like I've seen people do and title it "RARE long bed step side!!! Stock and ready for you to modify!!" And ask $10,000.

    Think region makes a huge diff. AZ is expensive - buddy moved to WA and trucks are dirt cheap up there.

    I actually think you can get a decent dollar for that truck.
    It's a rust free running 4x4 Chevy.
    In the rust belt....

    I think 4 to 4500 would sell it.
    I would list it for 5500 - 6....

    You've got to be kidding me, Mr. "I don't spend more than $800 on a Square Body." :confused:

    First off. It was 75$

    I have bought probably 5-6 of these for less 300 or less and another 3-4 or 5 for less then 500.
    In fact until the 76 I never paid more for anyone then 500....

    Second off. I paid 3500 for the 76.

    Third. Most of our talk came from Griff's thread where he's posting trucks with rust holes for 8500
    Those trucks were 2500- 4500 dollar trucks.

    You is pretty much rust free is it not?

    I honestly think the diesel and mismatched bed hurts the value alot but worse case it's still a 3500 dollar truck..

    Yeah, the mismatch doesn't help. I could reinstall the square tail lights if it really made a difference. Then it would only be fenders and bumper away from proper 80s goodness. I even have the bumper, too.

    I have one rust hole in each rocker, but otherwise the truck is pretty clean. Not sure how the cab wound up so much nicer than the rustbucket bed. :dunno:

    Griff may have thought I was kidding, but if rust buckets are worth $8K I'd happily drive mine down there. No way it'd bring that here.

    Throw it on eBay for $5000 obo and it will likely sell above $4000. $3500 on a bad day. You need to reach a buyer willing to travel though.

    "it only has a rust hole or two?" you mean, that you see. I live in Washington and won't buy a square that has any rust. I also won't pay more then about $2500 for them. That said, my last square, a fully loaded 83 diesel sold for $7500. Keep in mind, it was a needs-nothing-fully-loaded-the-ac-worked 3/4 ton Banks Turbo 4x4.

    $2500 to anyone but me, I wouldn't touch it - I'd especially not show running it in the sand

    Who the hell cares if it drives in The sand?

    And obviously you haven't been around here long enough to know he restored this truck, I highly doubt it has more rust on it then He knows about.

    Yes, it has rust, I'm not hiding anything there. I mention the rocker holes because they're the spots I never felt like repairing, and they are where the sheet metal has holes (vs. surface rust). The rest of the truck is solid by Wisconsin standards. I'm not selling it in Washington, nor would I expect someone from Washington to want it.

    Yes, it ran sand once. It also did some overlanding. Neither one is something I would put in the ad, as it's not representative of the decades this truck has been on street duty. I just grabbed the first couple pictures I found. So folks like @GWeakland620 would know which rig I was talking about.

    damn, someone asks an opinion I provide a polite response and get called an idiot. GLWS.

    I answered from the perspective of someone reading it on craigslist or whatever... but since I'm clearly an idiot - you all can go do whatever you all want to do.

    Next time you want an opinion - I'll be certain not to answer.
