You're paying for great amount of rusted out rotted area, oh, sorry, I mean "Patina". Yeah, that thing is loaded with "Patina", worth ever penny the more you have the better.

I think the word you're looking for is "moss"

If he sells it how will he tell what direction North is? The Moss always grows on the north side of the truck.

I guess he could buy a nice compass for $10000.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It takes a lot of years to get a good crop of lichens like this started on metal. Rust in all the right places only adds to the look:






It's often been said, "They're only original once". I've got this beauty insured for $30000. LOL.

In some of your nicer "original" vehicles, the patina is more than skin deep:

PS Seriously, I do have my truck insured for $30000. Originally, I figured $12000 was a real stretch, but my agent explained that I could go much higher if I wanted to for a very small increase in annual premium. I was assured that if my truck was ever damaged, the agreed upon value would be honored without question.

To the seller's credit, he is Canadian, and $10K CAD is only about $7500USD at today's exchange rate. Even at that, though, it's still about $7000 more than I'd be willing to give him.

Here is one that is more reasonably priced east of me in Central PA but still definitely not worth the advertised $1000. I don't know what is usable in this one.

I've gotten trucks like the flatbed for free, just to get them off the property.

There's old good restorations for sale for exactly the same price right next to it. Even in canadian funbucks it's absurd.

I'm kicking myself i can't get this. That'd be worth the money.
