We are trying to help a grieving widow who has just lost her husband.
The truck belonged to his father and he gave it to them just 6 months ago
Trying to set a price for the following:
1971 F-100, sport custom
all original, 128,000 miles
Even original paint, NO RUST AT ALL!
This truck is emaculate .
Master Cylinder needed
Can anyone suggest a helpful start or where to find an honest appraiser in Colorado Springs?
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.
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.
