What the F&%$K can I do to sell this thing?

There is more than $8500 in just the stereo and wheels.

I don't get it.





Can be seen here-

I mean really- I've finally got it running, just needs a few details before I get the registration again.

did you already try the local auction thing? i don't see why you'd have any problem selling that thing...maybe hit up some shows with it if possible...i would buy it in a heartbeat if i could...maybe it's just a sign that you should keep it, hehe

Have you considered eBay ?

I put mine in Autotrader and had at least 1/2 a dozen scammers contact me ... so I would recommend NOT using them

or perhaps

it sucks that you have all that time and money invested in your truck, and are having a hard time with the sell, (even at that low price !)

I think its all about matching up with the right person -

Good luck on the sale

BTW - whats your new project ?

1998 Dodge Ram Quad Cab (SOLD)
1999 Dodge Durango 4WD (SOLD)

2000 Dodge Ram VAN 1500
1970 Plymouth Road Runner


Good luck on your project.

You already know this, but if you were to finish the paint work and get it legal for the street you wouldn't have any trouble selling it.

I dig project vehicles as much as anyone, but I don't like 'someone elses' project, know what I mean?

I know if you finish it you'll have a harder time parting with it, but you'll also get a lot more money. It's a bad ass truck, we all agree. Any one of us would love to have it in our garage but if it's not licensed it's a tough thing to swallow. Too many unknowns.

Does that help? I didn't think so. Good luck with it, it's too bitchin to get rid of!

For real.

Yes, I know if got the front end painted, I'd get more but shit- if I spend $1000+ painting the front end and a the money getting it completely showable again, I don't know if I'll be able to recoop that money still yet.

The title is clean, and where I live in TX, (not sure about city folx) they don't check emissions or any other BS item. All they check for is windshield wipers (which I do not have), the lights and specially the license plate light. That's about it. I can have it inspected no problem even without the windshield wipers. Registration and insurance isn't a problem either.

I just need to find time to install the brake switch (pressure switch inline out of the mast. cyl. which I already have wire run to, and bleed the system. After that, I need to install the old dash again and tuck my hommade wiring system up and it's good to sell. Ohh wait- there's not speedo- well, there's a speedometer (digital) but it's not hooked up.

Huh?

It'll drive now, just doesn't have brake lights yet.

I need to get that done so I can have the registration-tags, insurance, and inspection done. After that it's good to go.

However my lazy ass isn't in any hurry till someone really wants to buy it.

Maybe it's just me but I think $1000 worth of paint will go a looooooooong way in helping you sell it. Your truck finished is a $20,000 truck, no questions. You only want $8500? Paint it and put it up for sale at $18,500. Getting your $1000 back doesn't seem to be a problem to me.

I'd love to take it on as an investment because I see the potential value in it, but with the Model A still unfinished, the '41 Sedan needing attention, the '60 Bel-Air waiting in the garage, and the '62 Buick still waiting to be sold, I have more on my plate than I can handle.

Hmmm... wanna trade it for a '62 Buick stationwagon? Just kidding.

I posted my question because you mentioned, "I mean really- I've finally got it running, just needs a few details before I get the registration again."

If there is little to no work in getting it ready to drive across the country, that was all I needed to know.

I had been talking to Nicour about the NBS escalade front end for it- they of course sold out their design to GodFather Customs or some BS so then I was going to go with a regular escalade front end and then never did. Since I had sold my old sheetmetal in anticipation for the new caddy stuff, I went ahead and purchased the gmc stuff for a few hundred dollars.

Besides, if it becomes a show truck again- I wouldn't want someone using my old paint scheme..... hehe.

Either way- it's a steal at $8500 no a/c or not.

i know me too
but today the guy called me back and cannot figure out how to open the driver side door. so he comes over here and i tried and i cant figure it out either so i guess i got rid of it just in time.

if i had not suicided the doors i would have kept the truck cause everything else was easy to fix but when i tried to be a master fabricator and do the doors i went in way over my head
