I figured with the wheels noted it might happen, but maybe not.He would get that 1000... If it had an engine to go with it.. MAYBE. They look at metal value, and without the engine, they lose.
Around here he might get 800 if it was a complete truck, running or not. But around here, we dont have rust, so they know they will get their money back from body parts, interior, etc.
He is basically asking someone to buy his truck, that they will have to spend another 3000 (used engine tranny) to 8000+ bucks to be made road worthy.
Or they can spend 4000 on a running truck, and buy the "extra" stuff.
In my opinion, find a salvage yard tranny, or search craigslist and find a tranny engine combo (so you can keep the motor). Make it a driver.
The money is in the parts, or as a driver.. There really isnt much inbetween.. Its not a 68 FireBird/Exotic.
every time I look at mine it gets worse and worse lol, particularly with the seats and trim pieces, but whatever it runs
if I get something newer it will get tore up as well
