I see it all the time with vintage motorcycles, trucks likes ours, and parts for both. Yes the adds are listed but you will see many of them for sale a year later at the same price. Some are selling but most likely take a lower offer. Others never sell.

Not much different from looking for something you want/need on fleabay and see atrocious 'buy now' or 'minimum bid' on with 0 bids. Pages full of them.

This was the coworker's first diesel, and he went back to gas because we was not mechanically inclined.

That's three I know of personally that pulled the ripcord on their $60K - $70K diesels. Given how few people I personally know with 6.7Ls and other new diesels, that is a big percentage.
This is interesting Rich. I am seeing more and more gettign fed up with paying HUGE prices only to find exactly what you are talking about here. I still think someone is on crack though thinking they can get $33k for a 17 year old truck. That's just me.

My other personal favorite..."hard to find, won't find anywhere" when there are 30 more CL ads LOL!

How about paying twice the price, for a truck that is thrice as old?

Some trucks from the 50's and 60's are selling for as much or more than a brand new truck sells for today. I have to laugh at when I thought $11k was too much to pay for a 1963 split window Corvette Stingray.

**update** this week I'm lowering the price down to $3000 because the tag is out of date and I took the batteries out for my tractor. Next Monday I'm black tagging and putting the batteries back so the price will go back up. I'm selling my 1999 ford 1ton dually. With 238000 miles. It has a 7.3l powerstroke. The injectors got bad so I removed them and other stuff came up so they are still in a box needing rebuilt. I replaced the transmission about 4 years ago it has a gooseneck ball in the bed a few dings and dent nothing bad for a 20 year old work horse

Looks a little rough, but appears to be 4x4. Maybe worth the price in parts?

I like the few dents and dings analogy.

That's definitely a find of the day. He says the price is going back UP again once he puts the tags back on the license plate. I shudder to think what he would raise the price to if he put the injectors back in the engine.

Maybe but maybe not. You'd have to buy it with the expectation that engine and trans were both shot since you can't even test drive it. Now what parts are going to make it worth $3000?

If it was a L99 crew cab and local I would go look at it. I would not give 3k, but might make an offer.

Looks like an early bird based upon the badges. I'd give him 2k as it sits. Front D60 and rear D80 diffs, rear fenders, tail gate, drive shaft, and rims, if in good condition would cover that cost and then you could part the rest out. The transfer case is probably almost toast if it is the original. Those parts aren't cheap around this area.

I need two of those aluminum rims.

Ad says he is Black Tagging it, which in OK means non-operational status. So penalties for not having it registered stop accruing.

Which by my read, means that is at best a reason to stop lowering the price due to registration penalties.

Says he took the batteries out to use in his tractor, and the price goes up when he puts them back in... What are the odds he is actually putting his old dead tractor batteries into the truck?

Idaho_F250 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just to bump this thread to the top on a Wednesday morning...
Found this perusing the local craigslist this morning.

https://ogden.craigslist.org/cto/d/2...596392541.html

Looks to be a fairly low mileage 7.3, I always laugh at how they always claim to have the last, or an extremely rare model when I see a few every couple of days posted up for sale.
