    I'm looking at a dump truck to add this year for larger lots etc...and found a 1986 chevy 4x4 with a 4 spd tranny(3spd with creeper gear) 9' fisher plow on it with sno-foil. It also has a new clutch and throw-out bearing.
    It has high miles on it(100K) but sounds OK and doesn't smoke when started or running.
    Body is in good shape no rust on cab but some small holes in dump body floor. Tires are all good too.
    How much is a truck like that worth? the sign on it says $10,000 or Best offer.

    That sounds pretty high to me but hard to tell without seeing the truck. I would think it would be more in the 6-7000 range. 15 years old, mileage is not really high but the dump body may need work. What does sound ok mean? Can you get some pictures?

    Mintr condition that truck would be between 10-12K.
    But for average condition around 8k is the highest I would go.

    last year I could of got the same type of truck less miles with new 350 installed/auto for around $5K.I would think a truck that old should not be in the $8K plus range unless it almost like new in my opinion. the truck new was only about $17-19K and things don't get better with age,well ok wine does but think about what the original cost of the truck is with the plow and go from there and a stick should be even cheaper.
