Well... May I suggest hanging on to the truck for a while, you really don't want to make any hurried decissions to sell. Even if you can Sandy, hang on to it for her. After a period of time, the idea of keeping it might be better. Should a decission to sell be needed, take a look in the local paper. If it is truly a nice truck like it sounds to be, you can probably get +- $3,000 for it. The master cylinder is a $30 part, so that's not a biggie. These trucks are desirable by two groups. The 70's gang that like the body style, but also the crew in the 65-66 bodies. The older truck can be dropped right onto the newer frame and viola, you have instant disk brakes/power steering

foddoch, any chance the truck is in the Colorado Springs area? I'd gladly take a look at it for you. I've seen immaculate original condition trucks go on eBay for upwards of 10-15K. But you'd probably have to sell it to a large audience like an eBay audience. I'm not sure of a better way to sell them. I have an old beat up 72 that I have about $2000 invested in. It's in much better shape now then when I got it but I'd pay $3000 in a heartbeat for a nice one. I don't desire one enough to pay more than that. That's why you'd have to sell to a large audience to get bigger money. The NADA guide (nada.com) says these old Fords are worth about $6000 in average condition. One the 67-72 forum there are guys who say people pay that where they live and others that say you'd have to be nuts where they live. I don't know the market here and rarely do you see these trucks for sale for more than $1500. But most of these old trucks are all beat to heck. I'd guess it would sell in the $5-6K range in immaculate condition. But I'm no expert. This is just my gut feel for what I have been through (bringing mine back from the dead) and what I've heard in these forums.

No, but if you give me the address I'll find it. Nothing here is far away. You can email it to me if you'd rather not post it here.

I haven't been here for 15 days so I can't email you.
Do you know where Chelton and Palmer Park intersect?
We are close to there.

I'd put this in my last post but I can't edit it. Sorry for "double post"
Actually there are about 4 old Fords close to this intersection. But it isn't at that EXACT intersection.

I took my family to Elich's yesterday so that's why the late response. I do know where Chelton and Palmer Park is. You can give me directions from there as in go 2 blks south and turn right, 3rd house on the left. I can find anything with the correct directions. I also emailed you my phone numbers if you can get to your email.
