Anyone know what the value is on a 1960 ford pick up and a 1957 chev. Both trucks are clean with good paint and run good. The chevy has a remag. engine in it.I can buy both but would like to know if anyone knows the value before i stick my neck out and pay more than i could ever get out of them. I would buy as an investment only as i,m not into antique trucks. Thanks a bunch. James

Thanks for the info on the trucks. They are part of an estate sale,they just went up for sale today but noone bought them as of late eveing. They have been sitting for a few monthes but my neightbor has been cranking them up every once in awhile,they are clean and run good. the owner drove them all the time while he was alive Fred maybe i worded it wrong as an investment but what i ment was buy to resale to make a profit i dont like any old stuff,i had enough of that as a kid. I can get them both for 4000.I,m thinking about not buying but i did buy a lot of hand tool and a poulan chain saw. they had a lot of name brand tools that they didnt sell today and will have another sale soon. Since i,m a neightbor and friend they called me first today but these old bones wouldnt let me get to stiring about until late and nearly all the good stuff was gone when i got there.Thanks again James

james i don,t think id pay 2000 dollars each for them trucks especially if i was planning on reselling them to try and make a profit on, it is sorta a speciality market if you could find the right buyers(collectors) and they are out there you could turn a profit, but in all likelyhood you would sit on them a while before getting rid of them, maybe offer to try and sell them for the people and request a commission that way you are not endangering any of your own money and still making a little something off them,wheeling and dealing on vehicles can be a trying bussiness and some agents are pretty sharp be careful.

Need a lot more information to go on for a price. Not sure about the Ford but the Chevy could be worth anywhere from 500.00 to 4000.00 roughly all depends on how original and any rust problems. Having another engine is not a big deal unless you were tring to sell it to a collector. You can make and break in old vehicals. If they have been sitting a while and no buyers it tells you something about the asking price. If you stumble into someone who had it in there garage and just wanted to get rid of it and there was not much work to making it nice again you could make some money if you don't over pay. Most people know what they have now days with EBay and hard to find those real good deals. Mark H.

I can't imagine anyone wanting to buy old trucks as an investment if he doesn't like old trucks. Kinda like marrying an ugly woman and hoping you'll find out she's rich...

Hi James, I am far from being an expert on old trucks. I can tell ya about getting old, but I think you have already figured out some of those miseries. A friend recently bought a '72 Chevy pickup that is in really good shape. He gave $7500 for it. I drove it. I would not give that for it. The value of those things depends upon the whims of the market. Some people broker old trucks and cars. Find someone who is looking for a particular auto and find it for them. I think buying them would be risky unless you know their values. Not worth much, but there ya go.
