    $100 and I've got first dibs on it!:grinpimp:

    Seriously, I think it depends on what kind of shape it is in. You know the usual stuff... is the tub good and so on.

    In today's "BUYERS" market it's hard to say, but sight unseen, I wouldn't give more than MAYBE $3k tops if everything in those boxes is marked and prepped for re-installation. That's including the assumption that there's also a complete drivetrain with it. That's just me though. Projects aren't really worth s*** in a market like this.

    I think the seller would be better off documenting what is for sale and put it on ebay...That way the market sets the price...

    If there is an engine /drive train with it, it will more then likely need to be gone through from top to bottom after sitting for 20yrs. Not to mention axle seals, the fuel system, and so on.... That said, it would take a lot of time and dead presidents on the buyers end, if that is true that it has sat for 20yrs. and all the parts are still really there. Realistically I would go no more than $1000 for something that is not running and in pieces. It would have to be very clean and rust free to get that much from me.

    Was it ever even painted once it was broken down? If not add that to the list.

    Just my serious dos centavos.
