Yeah the owner isnt asking 1000 for it he is asking more like what you guys are thinking its worth. My 1100 I want out of it includes what I would pay to get it closer like putting the dash together with all the original things that he has with it, deap cleaning it, new seat or redo this one(too bad its not original). So are you saying when its around 600 it might be worth it the way it is?
There are so many variables to say yes or no to that question. Providing what I can see is all that is wrong with it, runs & drives good, brakes are good, glass is good, tires are good it might be worth $600. Did you check the link I posted. I posted it so you could see what most of us who build these trucks consider a $600 truck. This body style is prone to bad cab mounts, bad floors, hinge area for the doors being rotted away, hinge area for the hood rotted away, bottom of the core support rotted, inner fender wells rotted, bed floor bad, bottom of the tailgate rotted out.
If he is asking $600 for the truck tell him you would love to have the truck but all you have available right now is $350. See what happens. Don't bad mouth the truck you will just make him mad. Don't point oout all that is wrong with it, he already knows what is wrong with it. He will probably come back with something like $500. At that point tell him you will see what you can do and walk away. The next day or wait 2 go back by (always better in person) and tell him you were able to come up with an additional $50. You really want the truck but all you have is $400 will he consider taking $400. He will be expecting you to find another $50 so he will most likely say he will do $450 but nothing less.
Only have $400 and maybe a few ones in your wallet. Keep the rest of your money in a pocket. Open your wallet and take out your money. Have it all in 20's, it looks like more money that (4) 100's. Count them in front of him & when done make like you are searching all your pockets for more money. This looks like you really want this truck bad. Do not add any more to your stack. Tell him it is all you have. If he says no then walk away telling him you will try to come up with more. Wait 3 days and go back with whatever you offered the other day ($406) and tell him all you can come up with is the $406 you had the other day.
Ask him to reconsider your offer telling him it is all you can come up with. He's not driving it. It's just sitting taking up space. If he thinks you really like the truck he may take your offer because it is going to someone who really wants it. Gettin the idea?
