Whats this thing worth?

Im not putting this up for sale YET. Its a project im still finishing up that I have no need to hang on to, but I am trying to get a general idea what it is worth. Its a 76 1/2 ton 4x4 power wagon, with the rare club cab and short box. 160k on rolling chassis. Was a 400/727/203 pickup, but now has 92 intercooled 12v cummins/a518/208. Unknown mileage on motor but it ran great right before install and they run forever. Body wise i have yet to see a nicer one, does have some rust in rocker panels though. Interior is in great shape as well. I have an idea what the pickup was worth before motor swap but dont really know what value to add to the 12v swap. Input would be appreciated.

The Cummins might add $1k to the value to someone who wants an older truck with a Cummins, to someone who doesn't like a diesel, the truck is near worthless. Also, ClubCabs are not exactly rare in Dodge truck circles. To me, I might give you $2k, but I can't stand the full time 4WD axles on the '75-'79 models. On a good day you could probably get $4,500-$5,500 out of it to someone that likes that model ClubCab with a Cummins swap. Probably no more than $3,500 to someone who doesn't care about those sort of things. Also, FYI, that's a '72-'73 model grill in it.

about three fifty...

Seriously nice looking truck you got there.

I had the same one but with the 318.

The diesel swap would really make it a bad ass truck.

To diesel guys its not worth near as much as a 1st gen, because
A) its not factory
b) Its not the diesel hd frame

I did the swap in a lighter weight 1/2 ton because I built this more so for economy rather than performance.

While I can't give you an actual worth, I know that it seems like diesel quad cabs fly off the proverbial shelf like hotcakes. I think that the club cabs are just ugly.

Does it run? Sucks how much time and effort you can put into it and never get it back out if it isn't finished. I like the truck and it seems clean, but as mentioned before the front end and 1/2 ton chassis kind of sucks. I think that brings down the value. I'd say no more than $3k and that's only because it's so clean. I'd pay more if it was still gas.

Yes it runs. I replaced the lift pump so I need to get all the air out of the fuel system, but other than that it is pretty much done. I built it with the hopes of getting it to get in the 20 mpg range with some tweaking, so if I find someone with the same goal in mind I may get lucky.

Finding that person would be key, but I bet they are out there. Nice truck just need to find that die hard Dodge guy. Check out a wrecking yard in Whitehall Montana. It's a big chrysler place. I know they are huge dodge guys. I think it's called Freeman's or the family that runs it is named freeman.

A freind of mine sold his 72 Crew/Cummins 4x4 off of DTR(?) I think. He got good money for it, but it had the 60/70 out of the donor truck too. It was also loaded down with good parts and already had a bunch of trouble free miles on it. The thing that kinda kills your truck is the half ton axles, I think the frame in those early crews are all the same no matter 100 or 200.

I'm with everyone else, you'd be looking at 3000 max. In my mind you have a half done project, add the one ton axles and suspension and your set.

Now if that had a 4bt it'd be a whole different ball game a club cab short box with a 4bt would get excellent millage and still be useful while not putting such a beating on those stock axles.

Good luck with the sale.

If you weren't so damn far away, I'd come down and take a look at it myself.
