I'm going to go against the norm on an internet forum and admit I was stupid. Real stupid. I'm gonna give my '86 Bronco one more season out at the deer lease before I decide if I'm going to peddle it, but I'm dreaming of a fast car before I get too old and the wife and I agree that the fleet must be reduced before we buy anything else. And my Chevy pickup really does everything I need out at the lease, except for what you'd use a UTV for.

I bought it for $1,500.00. I've bought a new short block, carb, tires, and lots of other stuff (electrical, etc.) Still has the old, bled-out A/C, but it does have heat. Street legal and licensed.

I realize that I can't expect to get even a fraction of what I put in it, but how do you go about coming up with a fair asking price?

I search the market rate in about a 100-150 mile radius from me and then compare condition of mine vs theirs.

NADA is always a good place to start for a base figure.
Then check craigslist, want adds, etc. for your area to compare.

If you have your receipts for new stuff you bought and service records, that's a bargaining chip in your favor.
Also street legal and licensed which means good title, opens up your market quite a bit as it's not limited to "off-road" use only.

Creekrunner you can also research "sold" prices on eBay, and that can include your region too.

Driving a fast car that makes the girls (that I would no longer know what to do with) turn their heads, or seeing my faithful steed waiting in the brush as I walk back from a walkabout hunt? juggle

Go buy a new ford diesel 4x4

Faster than most production cars, doubles as a hunting rig and makes the girls get weak in the knees.

Problem solved

That truck should sell well in Austin area, I think you'd be surprised at what it will go for.
