How many miles?
When was the head gasket replaced?

depending on some of those things, I'd say 8k- 12.5k
I missed that part.

If it was half of that with HG done recently and documented maintenance, I would say $12.5K - $15k.
You failed to mention the most important things around here; how many cup holders and does it have a console lock box?:hillbilly:
Even $8K is too high IMHO. Either way, it's worth what someone will pay you for it. Start at $7900 and be prepared to accept much less after the tire kickers have come and gone.
The parts alone, if someone would want to build a similar rig, would cost more than the lowest offer. Add the value of the truck and it should be above $10k.
I understand one cannot make his money back by building a truck up and reselling it. It does have some intrinsic value. People are picking up trucks in bone stock condition for about $4k - $5k.

It's not a 40th and it does have 300k miles, so I would argue it should be around $10k.
All other factors as I mentioned above (40th, 150k'ish miles, HG replaced, detailed maintenance records) and it could be easily be at $15k.
Well its a custom rig, and its been customized according to your taste. Your taste of a cool rig may not fit a perspective buyers taste. Nothing wrong with that, except you might not get as much out of it when selling. Also, 300k is going to scare a lot of people off. Im going to say 10k tops because of mileage. But I think it will take a while to get 10. I would think it would sell faster at 7 or 8. Typically I start off high when I list a vehicle, then lower until I start getting tire kickers I know I am close.
Why is I always hear, "I must sell" and "I have to get XXXX out of it" together.
value of truck + sum of all parts / 2= price of the truck.....which would be a really fair value! just my humble opinion.
California is a big state and vehicle values can vary significantly according to county, so where in CA are you located?
I've seen garbage 80's hardly good for parts rigs list for $700 and sell for over $3000 because jackwagons get into bidding wars because they have more money than common sense. I have also see similarly built rigs sell in the low $8k range with lower mileage when they were listed in the $16k range. It's all in what people are willing to pay you for it. If you don't have to move it fast you have a better chance at getting what you'd like out of it.
