Value of our beloved trucks

Hey experts. Any guesstimate on the worth ($ not sentimental!) of a '62 F100 unibody?? Mine has been modded for drag strip duty. I plan on returning it to street duty, but keep the bad attitude. It has a 460 ci with Edelbrock heads and dual holley fours on a tunnel ram. The frame has been narrowed to make room for some pretty big meats in the back. The sheet metal is all there, some in need of minor repair. Any idea on the value of this truck in stock condition? And in its current state? Thanks.

Bub, The main thing is "what will someone give you for it". One can claim all day long it is worth $5000.00 but if you can only get a $50.00 offer after two years of asking the value aint what one thinks that it is.

From what you have described, it is only attractive to a street rodder. Don't be surprised if it is much lower than you think.

I imagine some of our good posters here will have a different opinion, but ask if that will put up the money up to match what they think the value is. I imagine not.

You might not get $1,000.00 for it in todays economy. Next year after Obama brings change...................is a whole nuther story.

Looked at your gallery. Can't give you a $$ amount, but that frame and drivetrain are a great start to a serious street machine. The body looks a bit ruff yet, but the uni's are the style most of the customizers are after. Finish fixing it and show it. Odds are if you want to sell it, you won't get out of it half of what was put in it.

Welcome to (FTE)!

When you get it ready for sale, you may want to take it to a rod run, or take to a dragstrip,
or post it on ( RACE JUNK. COM ) . It is worth what some one is willing to pay!

Thanks for the info. This was more of a curiousity than any thing. I am pretty good at buying hot rods, not so good at selling 'em!!!
