August 26th Update: when we featured this ’98 S10 last week, the owner seemed firm on his $2,000 asking price. Since then he lowered it to $1,500 to make this a great value regardless of how you plan to use it.
It doesn’t get much more honest than this 1998 Chevrolet S10 for sale here on Craigslist in South Plainfield, New Jersey where the original owner just lowered his firm price $500 down to $1,500. The NADA Classic, Collectible, Exotic, and Muscle Car Appraisal Guide currently lists the “Low”, “Average”, and “High” value range for this truck at $2,150, $3,325, and $4,150, respectively so we agree with original owner’s assertion that his asking price is very fair.
We love the seller’s description, so we thought we would share it here because he simply nails it!
“I am selling my 1998, rear wheel drive, manual transmission Chevrolet S10. It has 4 cylinders and 110,00 miles and I am the original owner. The interior is clean. It has a few dings and surface rust that go along with being a 21 year old truck. It is the perfect truck for going to Home Depot, hauling branches and leaves to the town dump, and helping a buddy or two out in a time of need. It will not turn heads as you are stopped at a light or for going off-roading in. If that is what you are looking for, this is not the truck for you. If you are looking for a solid, light weight truck that will get you down the road and help out with tasks associated with homeownership, it might be the truck for you.”
While this truck could be used the way the original owner describes it, we realize this also could make a great first car for a new high school age driver or as the basis to do and LS swap and create a nice hot rod truck. Whichever way you choose, good luck with the purchase!
