A while back in another thread I was in a discussion about the difficulty in obtaining a professional appraisal of the value range of the 60 - 66 K20s, one of which i own.
Well, it seems I have found at least one answer and I am relieved to say that my instinct about turning down an offer for $12,000 for it appears to have been justified. I have no intention of ever selling it and will be passing it down to my favorite family member when my time comes, but it's nice to know others apparently appreciate the truck model as much as I do.
I had been searching for this truck for over 30 years before finally finding one 8 miles from my home in a barn where it had been sitting for the past 15 years. I have every intention of keeping it as original as I possibly can and so far it has been very cooperative to say the least.
Value is in the eye of the beholder. Its only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I have a ton of junk, i think is worth something, and cant always find the person willing to pay anything for it.
It's nice to think of what our trucks are worth. Offers don't mean anything. They always come back with my wife says no, gotta sell my truck first. The ONLY way to know is to sell it. The NADA, Hemmings, Hagarty values are absolutely worthless. For various reasons. You can not possibly know what price category your truck is even in, on those sites. Just enjoy the truck and don't dwell on subjective values.
I'm away on an ego trip. Will be back on Feb 30. I'm not an Auto Mechanic, but I play one on TV. I charge $0.02 for every opinion and I take Paypal. Plan B is always better than plan A, by definition.
