What is my truck worth?

Can someone help put a value on my truck. We have put $5k+ into the truck in upgrades and mechanic work. It runs great now. Only needs a new heater core and the muffler tailpipe needs to be attached correctly. Other than that all is good. Not sure how many miles are on the truck but I'm guessing 130k. It starts over at 99k and it has 30k+ now. Previous owner I believe is the only owner. View my ad for pictures and details.

I don't think we can.

Value is the buyers area

Asking Price is set by the seller, and that can be anything you want.

Value and selling price is strictly up to the buyer.

I think your $3,500 price is quite reasonable, but truck is 24 years old, and many "old" pickup buyers are just looking for stock "work trucks" so your buyer market is limited to those looking for specific modifications and they assign the "value" for those modifications.

And of course local competition for similar trucks also comes into play when advertising the vehicle.


Just my opinion

Thanks

Thats a great answer really. I have convinced my son to keep it as his first car which is a big relief to me since we were losing so much money ($2k) and work put into this little truck. Thanks for your reply.

That's great, many people fix up their car/truck or even house and then sell it.

I fix them up, house as well, and use it, lol, take advantage of my hard work and money for awhile.
Your son should really enjoy that truck, I would have "killed" for a truck like that as my first vehicle, but that was over 40 years ago..........

My first was a ****** Overlander, 4x4 but most of the engine was in the back in pieces.
Flat head 6, paid $250 for it when I was 15, had it running by the time I was 16, took my DMV test drive in it, instructor was not impressed but I had installed seat belts and the fold forward passenger seat was "mostly" bolted down, I did pass, lol.

Super clean. Smart choice to keep it and get some ROI out of it being used.
