Looking for some input on the value of this truck and will provide as many details as I can . Except for a couple of minor dents, the body is unbelievably good and solid as it has been stored under cover for most of its life. It's a "Custom Cab" as I'm sure most of the 1 tons were in '72. It has its original red paint which still shines after an application of polish. It has the 360 FE with a 4 speed granny low. It has approximately 80,000 miles on it. The interior is fair with the worst feature being the typical cracked vinyl dash. The seat cover, although coming apart at the drivers seam, is factory original. The truck has power brakes but no AC or power steering and no radio. the original factory rubber floor mat is still intact and in good condition. The truck originally had a fixed flatbed with oak flooring which eventually rotted away sometime around 1985. My now deceased Dad located a pretty rough flatbed dump body, installed it in place of the old bed and hooked up the PTO on the tranny to the hydraulic pump so it does dump.. The tires are all old and still good except for some minor cracking.The grill and front bumper are straight and the door mounted side mirrors are all straight. I just installed a rebuilt brake master cylinder and front wheel cylinders so the brakes are fine. I also installed a new rebuilt fuel pump, installed good used fuel sending unit and removed, cleaned and lined the fuel tank with POR 15 Fuel Tank Liner. I also rebuilt the carburetor so it cranks up easily and runs great. The truck, although equipped with the Twin I-Beam system has never worn tires. That's about it. Sorry I don't have photos to share yet but will try to get a few? Based on this info, any ideas of the value?
