FC170 what\'s it worth

A friend of mine has a line on an FC170 and wants to know what its worth. I haven't seen it, but what I know is: Some rust through, primarily cab corners and the usual seams to very reparable. Engine is not running, but there is a rebuild motor waiting in the shed that goes with it. Glass is in tact, interior is usable (not mousy) but not great. Any ideas? I know they're getting hard to find these days.

Re: FC170 what\'s it worth

If the windshield is good, that is worth a couple hundred. I think all the other glass is flat and not worth as much. If the body is very rusty it is not worth much. And as far as replacing the engine, it is difficult to do in FCs. Here is my very ambiguous answer to "how much is it worth": Probably not as much as your friend thinks. But I would reccomend contacting some FC nuts about it:

Good luck to your friend. If I had any money, I would make an offer. I LOVE FC 170s!

Re: FC170 what\'s it worth

There was one here in Spokane recently for $500 (OBO). The body was in fairly good shape and the windshield was broke out. I just wish I'd had the money for it. The last one I saw that went through a full resto sold in St. Louis for about $17,000.
