You are looking for a specific buyer for that truck. That is really unfortunate because money is scarce for toys right now and even though there isnt much competition for it, it is a hard sell just because of the buyer that would be almost specifically looking for that.

Todd there is a Goodguys show here on Pleasenton Ca the weekend of march 27th. I bet that you might find a buyer for it there. I"m taking my little cousin to that show specifically to buy a car or truck. To bad you are about 2 grand higher then what he is looking for, I bet he would love that truck.
Good Luck!!!
Nice truck too.

Whats in it? details? I'll keep my ears out for you.

Don- I know money is scarce thats why I need to sell it, I wish I didn't have to.

Al- If I don't sell it by Mar27 I might be putting it in the trailer and comin down that weekend. Built 350 w/350 auto, shaved, lowered, oak bed, everything is new. Its a sick truck. I might toss around sell it for 8k if I didnt sell it after the weekend of the Goodguys show if I ended up comin down???

Here is a link to more pics

There are a couple websites for these trucks- my fav is just like here they have a for sale section- and you are reaching your target audience-

That's such a nice truck... Man, I'd love to buy it, but my F250 would have to go if I did. Might be worth it, though.

Seems like $10k would be a steal for that thing. Hey, could you send me some more pics to

That truck is sweet and a great deal if it is solid and done properly. The only hold back for some is probably the color, but I haven't seen too many examples of the 67-72's SWB in that price range. Usually closer to 15K plus if they have had that kind of work.

nice truck but black or white or red are always appealing to more buyers...the color will be what slows down your sale...gotta find the guy that wants that green...that price should get it sold sooner or later

Todd, that truck is awesome. Wish I could buy it.

Todd, your obviously losing quite a bit of money by selling the truck now. How much is $10k really gonna change your financial picutre? ( rethorical need to answer publicly)

It'd be cheaper/easier ( assuming good credit) to use a CC balance transfer or somthing similar...there is still alot of cheap money out there ( with good credit).

Wait 12 months , and see if the economy turns aroudn a bit, then pay off the loan when you sell your truck for $15k:-) a cost of a few hundred in interest.

IF the economy is still in the crapper, sell the truck at 10k, pay the CC off, but it bought you 12 months for only a few hundred bucks ( interest).

ebay--the first three listings are free to list for cars but you do pay a percentage of the total sale price

Thanks Tom for that site, I'm gonna list it there and see how it goes. Anyone else have suggestions I'm open.

Brett -I wish you could buy it too.

Al- myself and a buddy are coming down for the show, we will be in the for sale corral maybe I will see you there.

Put it on E-bay with a reserve price of 10K. I can almost guarantee someone will pay more than that. That is a REALLY NICE truck.
