Looking at a truck for sale has original 235 in it with 59 thousand miles on it what would be a decent price

Not enough information to give a reasonable valuation. Need about 30 more closeup photos. Or check out our Tech Tips on buying/selling.

As Justhorsinaround said we need more info. Just so you know, in ‘52, 3100’s (1/2 ton) pickups came with a 216 not 235’s. They were not available in the 1/2 ton until ‘54.

You go first...............How much are they asking? and do they have a 100% legit title? After I get those answers, there are the all important three magic questions.
BTW: The mileage has no bearing on value. Motor, not real important. Good that it has one. You don't use the same mind set as you would buying a 1982 Chevy truck. Totally different set of concerns and opinions. Kelly Blue Books and NADA and Hagerty are worthless in either case.

Just to add to the title


Make sure how ever its titled that the title numbers can be verified.

Example: guy has clear title, truck was previously titled by engine number. Since that time engine replaced.
Numbers no longer match title.

My case, truck titled by door post numbers. I go to DMV for inspection. Inspector wont verify because door post plate is “removable”. Luckily older inspector came to look and signed off.

So on, so on

Need way way more information and 30+ photos to know what you're working with.

Assuming it is solid, mostly rust free, and runs/drives decent but needs some TLC to make it a road-worthy driver, I'm thinking no more than $15,000-$20,000 or so for asking price.
Some might call me crazy, but I just saw one in worse condition than this one go for $14,000 very quickly after listed.

I will say that the truck was painted in 1988. It was a former military vechile im not sure only thought it has a 235 in it. It does run and is not perfect just but overall a little brake work and carb cleaning and a few other small details I think you could put her back on the road. It does have a title here is a picture of the engine hoping this helps
