How much to ask for parts I\'m selling?

Ok gang I bought a parts truck back in December that I got the 350 for my 79 out of. Well its a wrecked 73 1-ton extended wheelbase delivery truck. The guy was using it everyday for his Cabinent business. Then one of his co-workers caught the corner of semi-trailer and totaled it. It sat for about 2 years then I went and pulled the motor and now its been about another 6 months, but I've been waiting for this guy to get his delivery box off where I can bring the thing to my house and finish parting it out for some extra $$$.

Anyways like I said the truck is just a chasis cab, and the wreck just ruined all of the sheetmetal. On the upside its got a good duallie rear axle (not sure what it is, its factory GM) and 2wd 4-spd granny transmission. Well I've got one friend telling me I'd have no problem getting $600-700 for the rear axle alone. Then another telling me I could get $1000 easy. I didn't really ask about the tranny, but I'm really confused. I want to get rid of these parts because I really need the extra $$$ for my truck. I just got my rebuild kit today ($280 wholesale, mostly stock rebuild with performance Comp Cam), but I've got to get some more money before I can let my friend get started on rebuilding it.

So see really all I want to know is how much should I be asking for these parts because I don't want to get taken to the cleaners, and I don't want to have 'em marked so high that nobody wants 'em?????

P.S. The complete front suspension is still holding together any ideas on how much I might be able to get for that?

I'm not sure how much each of those parts are worth. But here's a tip, check e-bay and other sites like it also check your local papers for similar parts, that will give you a general idea for how much this stuff is worth. Personally I think your friends estimates are a little high.

I would say the rear is in the ball park of about $500. (you can pick them up, up here in Ontario for $500(350US) so you probably can't get much more than that. I would sugjest calling up the local wrecking yard and seeing what there worth and then selling it for that or a little less. Im not even sure what axle it would have though. Probably the Eaton but could be a 14bolt or a Dana70.

Well, you should have a 14FF rear. GM stopped using the Eaton after the 72's. Thing is, GM started using the Dana 70 for the rears of duallies in 77. So for 4 years from 73 to 76, they used a rare version of the 14FF. My copy of the March 2000 issue of 4x4 Power says this pertaining to the axle on your truck:
"A rare dual wheeled version with a narrowed housing was offered for chassis-cab K30s." Did it always have that work box there, or did it have a regular bed when new? So it may be rare, but I really doubt you would be able to get more than a few hundred for it. 14FF's are pretty common, and if someone ever manages to break something, parts for this one aren't the regular variety of 14FF parts./wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif

What gears are in it?

Try taking some measurements from the one on your Chevy to this one, and see what is different.

Re: How much to ask for parts I\'m selling?

I have an old '81 14ff with 4.10 gears sitting in my garage. It also has the stock rims. How much is that worth? My grandpa gave me it as a project but he said to just sell it if I didn't want it. I think I'm just going to leave my truck a half ton. I really don't wheel hard enough to justify that upgrade. Besides I'm going to school so I could use the money. I was thinking I would just sell it for $350. That sound like a good price? I mean I might take a little less for it just to get rid of it. My stuff evidently takes up a lot of room in the garage/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif.
