Here in the land of corn there are a lot of those trucks around. A truck like yours will only bring around 1500. A nice restored one brings 5000-10000. Don't get me wrong if you were close to me I would buy it in heartbeat for 1500, knowing what you have done to it. For some reason the trucks did not rot as bad as the cars. I sold a 74 3/4 ton 4x4 seven years ago for 1500 bucks. It had all new sheet metal with faded paint, Goodwrench 350, ran and drove good. It was a nice truck, but can't keep them all. Good luck with what ever you choose to do.

They are all over the place around here. You really have to mistreat stuff to get it to rust. I have a cousin that literally has a dozen of them. Ranging from 2wd short bed to axle swapped mud trucks. Keeps em stacked out back like cord wood. Can't hardly give them away. The 67-72 trucks are a far different story.

I'm seeing the same as Clutch is seeing for pricing, 67-72 have all but dried up and are through the roof, these squares are have been heading that way for several years. Even in Texas $500 only buys you a long bed, no engine/trans, missing a door, $1200 may get a complete body minus engine/trans. Short bed? Minimum $2500 for a ROUGH one.
Turbolq4 send me a list, I'm interested. ;)

I paid 3 grand for the square body crew and drove south out of state to get it and it was an undrivable pice of shit! But it was the best I could find withen a 3 hour drive. Remember what it looked like it barely ran and had no brakes.

There is just none left up here supply and demand. When I was trying for my bisness loan my plan was to fly to Houston Texas and buy a brand new blasting rig. I even talked to Jared about it I was planning to buy a cheap square body in Texas and tow the rig home because something that would get junked there is 3500 here
