How Much?
« on: June 09, 2016, 05:28:34 PM »
I finally couldn't stand it anymore. The corner garage down the street, called, "Korner Garage"...Really...Well for as long as I have been looking, has had an old Suburban sitting there. It is a gold colored diesel 2WD GMC.

Today I decided to give it a look over. It is a 1982 model with a blown up 6.2 detroit diesel and a R700-4 transmission. It has 5 lug wheels with the steelie sport rims. The interior is fair, but the body, much like SquareD has little to no rust. The frame has no rust that I could see. Only dirt and dust.

I asked Troy, the shop owner if it was for sale, and he said yes. Is asking $1500. It does not have the barn doors and obviously needs 4WD installed, another motor, a complete teardown and overhaul, but the body is as good as any you could hope to find.

One wheel well is perforated and there is an active wasp nest in the drivers door jamb. I'd take nothing away because of the blown boat anchor, but the wasp nest presents an immediate problem.

Oh, the interior is layered (Triassic, Jurassic, and so forth) with cigarette butts. My keen instincts suggest it has been smoked in a bit! Let me see, oh yes, the right aft door is dented, borderline repairable, and there are one or two other very minor 40mm cannon holes here and there. It is wearing Baghdad license plates and someone put a "82nd Airborne was here" decal on the windshield, which is also cracked.

Now some, well most of the facts I stated are true. Based on your deductive abilities of where the truth actually lies, what is that body worth?

$500-1k. I'm guessing, if he's like me, he said $1500 knowing it was ridiculous and was going to see if you bit. I think it's safe to say he's take $800 for it if you showed up with a trailer.. I know I would. hahah

To me it's $500 & I don't know if I'd pay that for a 1/2 ton 2wd running....... ::)

I was thinking I should offer $500, then expect him to counter at $1000, then we'd settle around $750.

But...It needs a complete 4WD conversion and has a tail gate which I do not like.

Further, I could negotiate with JR for that half ton of his with a Cummins. JR's burb should be in better condition being a Kali Kar, but for some reason this KY 82 is pretty much rust free...

But then again, there's those wasps...

but then again, you have

- a dodge sitting in the garage that runs but does not move!

- shall we talk about the punch out list on the dodge?

-you have a toureg that you are still trying to get rid of!

- you have the JD that is about to cost you half of your savings just to get it operational!

- the likely repair costs on big red / sarge!

- the cost involved with getting that well operational!

- completion of the hide temp shelter/tool room/bunk house

- the demo of the condemned shelter on said hide (so that it does not pose a toxic risk later in the future)!

- construction of the new permanent HH6 quarters!

and that's just the stuff you have given us knowledge of. 

i would venture to guess you have a few to many projects going at the moment, and may need to get a few of (the really important ones) them completed ..................?!

Sounds about right to have that sticker on the windshield. I'd think you'd both settle at or near $750.

Last I checked scrap is at $140 a ton on my commercial account. So whats a old Burb weigh? I'd say right at $500 would be my high side... and he'd have to supply the wasp killer.

Keep in mind I am very thrifty/broke whatever ya call it. I am upset I have $800 SO FAR INTO MY NEW TRUCK...nuts I tell yah

I agree.  500 tops.

...around here, at this point in time, non-commercial pays 30-40/ton. Can't get rid of junk cars cuz they're only worth 50 bucks....costs more to haul them.

You guys are tough on Big D.

Maybe he wants it to push into the entrance to the property to slow down the zombies when the criminal gets elected....

Id pass on it because of: no barn doors and 2WD

Found this a little late but here in my .02.

2 wheel drive 5 lug? So it has the thinner frame and you will need to change the front cross member for 4x4, but you will rebuild it all anyway.

As to the thinner frame, no big deal as you will beef it all up. Tailgate I don't like you need to role the window down to open it up and you can't change it to barns.

How long has it been sitting there? Is the title clean? Max is $500 or tow it away for free.

Mine?? 91 vs a 82, just 85k and a 4x4, 350/700r4 with dual AC, new tires and wheels. Driveable? Should be, but I need to tackle that running issue. Still needs the rear installed but otherwise sound all through. I would love to sell it and need to, but that is a long trip.

I gave 600 for a running driving 91 4x4. Just needed rear brake lines. So a non running 2 wheel cant be worth a whole lot.

Well TRN has a dually and a trailer, lives sorta equidistant between you two. He can haul, meet you both, have some food, then go home.  ;D
