That's the backup plan Tiny. He does not currently have it listed so we have no concept of what others in the market might pay for it.

Real quick before we wrap up this thread. I always wanted 4 on the floor and this is 3 on the tree. Which is more fun to drive?

I'd do what Tiny said but tell him your looking to buy something within the next couple weeks to kind of give him a little bump to sell it. 4 on the floor would be my 1st choice.

My "51 is 3 on the tree, all my other trucks are 4 on the floor (or in the case of the COE, 4 on the doghouse). I love driving them all, don't pass on the truck because of the shifter. Maybe for other reasons but not that.

I wanted 3 on the tree when i was looking for a truck. I like it because it actually has that older feel compared to everything newish being floor shifted. Its also nice with 3 people in the truck.

A three speed gives you more leg room in the cab, and three can ride comfortably.

It's a good deal. Offer $6000 or asking price. How bad do u want it?
Here in ontario it would sell fast. They are hard to find running.
Dont let him list it. It will sell and u will lose.

For what my 54 was back in 1983 I paid a little to much but in the same condition today it was a steal. What I am saying pay what you fell comfortable with and don't look back.

It seems way too much to me, but I have no idea what vehicles actually sell for. Just asking prices. Here is a 1-ton that is maybe comparable and they are asking $13,000

To me, the value of a 3/4 ton should be slightly less than a 1/2 ton. In my opinion your offer is fair. I like the shifter on the column but have no experience with the floor shifter.

Floor shifters are more fun. Whoever is sitting in the middle has to shift.
Great for kids to be a part of the driving experience.

I have come to terms with the column shift. I think it could be fun.

I agree it is priced too high. The market out in Ontario could support a price like this given the sellers usually have to ship them out from the prairies. But not here in Alberta. I am going to slow play this one and encourage him to come down in price. If he doesn't, so be it.

Thanks all for the good conversation!
