I am looking at a 1950 GMC 9424 (Canadian 3/4 ton) with 3 speed. Copy and paste the link below for pictures. It runs, drives and stops (we went for a ride). It is 100% original and complete, including a matching numbers block. The odometer says ~6000 miles which I don't really believe, but if it had rolled over 99,999 it would not likely be on the original block...
It is nearly dent free. It does have serious rust in the driver side cowl inside and out and some on the fender. Some rust in passenger side and the floor has some rust. Nothing crazy but would need replaced. Cab corners are very good with a bit of rot right at the bottom. Nothing out of the ordinary here.
My plan would be to get it mechanically sound and find an exterior product to stop the rust so I can drive it and enjoy for now. Then frame off restore and paint in the future.
My question for you folks is what would you pay for this? I picked up my 1951 9434 1-ton pickup for about $2200 CAD a year ago and it is complete and in similar shape, but with a seized engine. This fellow wants $6500, which personally I think is way too high. What do you think the market value is for this truck?https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/129PW3iEByIFGk_buejnuuC4H-I1A4FyK?usp=sharing
