As a rule, we generally avoid featuring vehicles with limited pictures and descriptions, however we’re making an exception with this 1973 Black over Gray Chevrolet C10 pickup posted late yesterday here on Craigslist in nearby Bangor, Pennsylvania as the seller wants a low but firm $4,000 cash. Based on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool, the private seller currently has his C10 priced $600 below the #4 “Fair” condition estimate of $4,600. The NADA Classic, Collectible, Exotic, and Muscle Car Appraisal Guide currently lists their “Low”, “Average”, and “High” value range for these trucks at $7,425, $14,850, and $28,300, respectively so at $4,000 this C20 deserves a call and an in-inspection as this may represent a value in the rapidly appreciating 73-87 Square Body Chevrolet Truck market. We’re thinking about buying this Square Body as a project truck to feature on our YouTube Channel – comment below on what you think we should do with it!
The private seller briefly mentions that his truck only has 73,500 original miles and is equipped a 350 cubic inch small block V8 connected to an automatic transmission. He also states that his truck is “pretty much all stock except transmission and exhaust.” While the pictures show what appears to be a custom exhaust exiting just ahead of the rear wheels, we plan to get an understanding of what he means about the transmission when we contact him this morning. The private seller also reports that in addition to “runs and drives beautifully” his truck benefits from a recent rear brake job. He also mentions that his truck has a a few cosmetic issues that include no back bumper, a rip in front seat, and a bend in the hood which is why he’s not asking more for it.
Candidly, this truck is calling out to us as a great fall project we can do a few things to spruce it up before we offer it to the next caretaker. Stay tuned!
