1955 Chevy Truck Price

Hi, I am looking to sell my 1955 Chevy 2nd series truck and have had some people drive by and ask if I am selling it, but I do not know what a good price to sell it for is. The truck is in pieces, but everything is there (no engine), and the body is in great condition. Also I have wielded a volare front end on and boxing plates. I have had this for years now and do not know what to sell it for so any help would be great. Thank you.

I bought my '53 in running condition w/ pretty straight sheet metal in 1990 for $1900. With inflation price goes up, in a basket price goes down. $2K is a good starting point. Do you have a 'Camera Ads' in your town? That type of publication really seems to turn things like that pretty quickly. EbaY is another good place to start. Start the price low but a reserve on it so you won't get burned. Bidding will either sell it or let you know its value.

every single running truck i have seen in good shape that's for sale lately has been in the 10K range. even tho i spent 9000 doing a frame off on my truck two years ago i would have to say that that makes my truck only worth about 10-12K too because i have seen similar trucks to mine with nicer paint, okay, paint and nicer wheels, for sale at car lots for 12K and on the side of the road for 10, and completely stock with 10yr old paint the other day for 9,900. even tho it has a volare front clip or camaro or whatever that may or may not add to the value as much as you think because people need to know that the welds are quality and that it was put on straight, so if a shop did it you will get more out of it than if you did it yourself, unless you are in the welding business. if the welds look awesome you should be okay regardless. as in my case my roommate at the timewho welds steel plates into ships at the local ship yard sectioned my frame and it looks like it and tracks straight down the road, even after i drove it into a 6ft ditch and went to the frame shop. if your truck isnt running tho, you cant have the guy follow you down the street or drive it to see if it goes straight.

truck price

My brother just bought a 54 chevy in darn nice shape and runs for $400.00, and i found a 55 chevy pickup last week with a great body for $150.00. I guess it depends on what your location is when it comes to prices. My 48 chevy fleetline im building now was free, i found it on a farm, and that included a title. Its funny how location can change the price.

Check this site out and look at what they are going for. You can find quite a few in that year and prices will vary. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/

See this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this.

Obviously these trucks are not in really high demand. Some seem very under priced but there isn't much of a clamor to bid them up. Problem is there were so many made and they lasted so well, there is still a relative glut of them out there to be had, compared to demand.

Great, all this is helping me out a lot to see what to sell it for. The truck is totally disassembled, but has a good body unlike those eBay ones that are up to $500. Thank you for all the help guys.

always check the cab corners and other not-so-obvious rust areas.
