We found this 1,400 mile time capsule for sale by the private seller here on Craigslist near Warren, New Jersey for the asking price of $18,000. Based on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool, the private seller has his truck fairly priced between the #1 “Concours” and #2 “Excellent” values. The seller states that reason his truck has such low miles is that is was found in the back of dry and dark GMC dealership that closed in 1988. Consequently, the truck reflects the near perfect 31 years of storage.
The seller states that this White-over-Red-Vinyl truck is completely original and is equipped with a 454 cubic inch big block mated to a four-speed manual transmission, AM/FM radio, power steering, power brakes, and dual gas tanks. This truck even has the original tires and while he claims that they drive fine, we highly recommend replacing them with a fresh set if you plan to do any driving with this truck.
This truck raises an interesting dilemma: do you keep it as a trailer queen and only drive it to car shows or do you treat it and use it like a brand new new truck? We like the smaller size of these Square Body Chevy/GMC trucks, so we might be inclined to use it!
Whatever you decide to do with this truck, good luck with the sale!
