part it out??????

i been tryin to sell one of my projects as a whole for about 3 months now and having no such luck. I am thinking about parting it out. I only want 1500 for the whole truck, it has 460 4 speed. dana 60 rear with a locker. body is in great shape, except for the passenger rear fender. actually aside from the little amount of rust the truck looks awesome. Only mechanical flaw is the flywheel teeth are bad and the interior is rough. If i were buying a project i would think this is a good deal for the whole truck, but maybe i'm wrong?? Any suggestions to help out a broke college student???

Sounds like a good price.

Maybe putting a flywheel in it and dressing up the interior a bit might expand your market and get you much more than the cost of the upgrade/repairs.

DON'T sell it. Park it behind your parent's garage till you graduate. I drink 1500 bucks worth of beer every month. Don't lose a truck for chump change. Trust me..........

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Has that been on Nashville Craigslist? I think I recognize it. I've been looking at trucks on CL for a while. Wish I were closer. I want to get rid of my 97 Nissan and get a real truck. Good price on it, I think, and just what I would want.

If you part it out, it will be essentially picked over for almost a year, about $20 to $50 at a time. If you need the money, not the best way to go.

Economy is tough, but you've got to be tougher. Hang in there.

Looks like a lot of truck for the money and a good buy but as someone suggested fixing the flywheel would prob help sell it more then anything else. If you go the route of parting it out you would have much more headache and time involved as well. As mentioned the project and fixer up stuff has been slow here lately and especially on CL from what I have seen with my own stuff . I haven't sold many projects lately but find I am doing a lot of trading and keep trying to trade up each time without any expense.
