    $4-5k minimum if you market past your area. Add 50%+ if you go nationwide and are patient.

    Try this site to list it. Inexpensive and generally gets high returns.

        My plan A was just to drive it and be patient and and July renew the tags again if need be. I'd like to have it finished by the April swap meet and put the price on the window which will include a ride home LOL.. use it to haul my parts and my firewood...

        If your going to put that much time into it then sell something else and injoy the fruits of your labor!!!
        If some one down the line throws the right amount of cash at you......well.....then sell it!

        If you do it right, you wont get all the money out of it, you put into it! It's just the way it is.

          Hard to say what it will be worth. Trucks are hot now. Short beds are more desirable but plenty like the long bed. Facebook has a tin grille page. Those guys would probably be a good market for it.

            Speaking of the Tin Grill I just can't let the one that was on it Go with It.. I'm a big fan of the Club cab long bed Power Wagon like I gave my son.. if I ever get one in the future again I will be kicking myself if I let that Grill go. It's just the hardest part find and the one that I'm putting on it looks pretty good...

            The one on the bottom is the original and it's pretty straight but it's a bit dull. the one on the top is the one that I put on and it actually looks pretty shiny on the truck it's been buffed at some point and the Black is gone as well..

            I don't know what you have into it but I can guess pretty close to what your out of pocket will be if you do your entire list. And the quality of your finished truck will be high because of your skill level. That counts.
            I'm thinking start at about $7500 and wait for the phone to ring. Be ready to deal----------------JMHO

              I've seen a slight uptick in 72-92 truck prices around here.

              5 years ago they were 1500 and less.

              Now 2500-3500 is a common asking price and some are priced higher.

              how about the front bumper?

              I got a good friend that says he's never seen one with a straight front bumper.

              Mine is close but has a slight bend

                This one's probably like yours. Very close almost fooled me but it's got a little bend on the passenger side. I have it off and want to work it a little bit more straight...

                There's one piece of chrome missing over the passenger rear tire, but I have it located. And there's one big 18 inch long scratch in the bed right in front of that wheel well as well. I was hoping to at least touch it up...

                I found this picture that the PO took and you can see that bad part of the bumpers hard to notice and also I need to somehow scrub that last little bit of clear coat off that one fender..

                Of course I will scrub all the cream white till it's shiny and I will scrub the frame and paint it black and put new rubber mats between the wheel wells and frame..
                Of course have the motor all painted like I did my son's Power Wagon...

                  Advertise in Missouri and you'll likely be held liable for all the people needing new teeth after they fall on their faces trying to be the first to get that thing. Truck prices are absolutely bonkers here.

                  We have dealers that are taking trades in Canada trying to get inventory. And delivering.

                  Don't touch any more than you need to.

                    i have had better luck just driving vehicles around, and then somebody will ask if they are for sale.
                    When I sold my power wagon, my neighbor noticed a new truck in my driveway, he asked about my old truck, I gave him the price and it paid it.

                      This is kind of the main plan. Just get it very very drivable and take it for trips and especially wanted to have it ready for the swap meet in April so I could lift that hood and let that gleaming well running motor sell itself inside that straight truck..

                        I also got pizza the night before Thanksgiving.

                        My dad also has your dream truck, Club cab power wagon he bought new, a couple of months ago he said that he was not going to renew the tags for another year, he did not even drive it last year.
