I know everyone has different opinions on value but a ballpark figure would help out.

3 speed on the column
Surface rust but can corners are gone
Engine rebuilt 8 years ago. Didn't see under hood (according to seller)
Everything seems to be there
Needs tires
Runs and driveable
Interior ok but original
New gas tank behind seat
Seller asking 9600$ obo
Thanks for any help on this. Bill

I would keep looking. If the cab corners are gone, then most likely, so are the floors, inner cowls, inner to outer cowls and who knows what else.
Then there are all of the mechanical parts.

A couple of years ago I would have agreed with that statement , but the market has ramped up considerably of late.

$9,600 is steep ; perhaps the owner will negotiate? One owner is a plus , the visible running board looks nice and straight , truck does not look abused. And those 3100s are not growing on trees.

Age 68 is not too late to start hot rodding , right?

Thanks for your input on the value. Overall the truck seems in good condition for it's age and where it has lived it's life. Bill

Looks like it has not been messed with may be worth another look to get more imfo on its condition and what it needs to be roadworthy In that area like mine there are no trucks you have to add the expense of travel and tow.

A teacher, but always an apprentice.
If it’s a one owner truck, how old is this fellow? I don’t buy that for one second. I’d want to pull some pieces off the engine to see if it has been rebuilt. Pull some plugs, the valve cover, and the lifter cover. That could tell you a lot. I’d call him out on it and want to see all the proof he has. It is a very solid truck, but grill the guy good to make sure you’re happy with your decision. If it seems to good to be true... it probably is.
