low motion? that place still exists?
look at the pics and look at the price?!!
is that what these things go for?!??!
It should be get it the fuck off my yard
good luck finding another one with a 390 in it
is it yours?!!?
ya can get a newer ford half ton for that price that is actully drivable
I don't think thats the point in buying an older truck to restore, I don't know much about old Fords, but maybe the thing is worth a bit if its not very common.
no pun, u slow ass.. hes saying.. instead of "FS" it should say "Come remove this from my yard"
and WTF is that guy thinking.. 3500.. i dont care what is under the hood
O, im dumb, but yea, 3500 for a half a rusty truck ummmmm NO!
half?? thats being generous...
You fuckin tools. Its called a collector truck. Anyone with a little common sense for vehicles would know anything over 25 years old is considered a antique and 20 is a classic. A classis goes for quite a bit eh considering its collectable. Why do you think people pay like $20 000 and $25 000 bucks for old rusted out 55 chevs and fords etc. Because they can be made into $100 000 cars.
It's still abit steep of a price though bro!
No way, My uncle has a stock 70 Ranger in mint shape and its apraised at close to $20 000.
Oh, so... an 82 Cimarron is a classic?
Something has to be desirable in order to be a classic, age doesn't define everything.
Good point. In this case. This is a classic worth restoring its different from the rest. Check the facts.
oh look its captain dipshit, he knows everything. I have a question for ya....why do you have the brain capacity of a 8 year old?
BTW, if I buy that, will I have to do some work on the suspension for it to save me? I was thinking of driving it....ummm, 160kmh through halifax. If not could you do some work on it for me.....YOUR SUSPENSION IS TIGHT BOMB BRO...
Haha are you serious? Your asking me why I have the brain capacity of an 8 year old? Maybe you should be asking that to yourself.
I did, I dont know the answer.....
Haha you are a jackass bud.
And the suspension thing is getting old. Give it up.
yup you're right, but still funny in my head. I think I can give it up.
I see nowhere that I said this particular vehicle wasn't.
Um, because *I* am the one that made the comment about 20 year old cars being classic and 25 year old cars being antique? No, that wasn't me... I was simply proving a point. Time doesn't define everything.
ACCTUALLY, not to get in a "bad" arguement with you. But no matter what, anything over 25 is antique and anything between 20 and 25 years old is considered classic. Reason being for insurance puropses. Havent you ever seen an old car going down the road with a collector plate, or antique plate on it? Maybe no considering your location. But trust me I know, I have an uncle with a 70 Ranger worth money and a 55 custom chev. And if someone were to rearend his 55 do you think hed be getting book value back on it? HA I dont think so.
Do you have documentation on this? I know for a fact that a vehicle has to be considered desirable to be a classic, just being old isn't enough.
Yes, I have seen older muscle cars, classic American cars from the 50's and the like but I have never seen an early 80's GM product tooling 'round like that, nor have I seen a 70's Honda CVCC with a collector's plate. Reason being, they aren't considered classics... too many produced, too many exist, not enough demand. Just being old doesn't cut it.
That really has nothing to do with what we're talking about. Insurance companies do not dictate the desirability of a vehicle by the payout. IF that were the case, the 99-00 Civic Si and 94-01 Integra GS-R are *instant* classics. They aren't. One day, maybe.. if they are rare and desirable enough after 20...
What really is a Classic car?? hmm A vintage auto perhaps?
Pat we only have Antique plates here not collectors plates! anything 25 yrs & older can sport them!
Well, our plates are different.. but I'm not even talking about a plate. A collectible vehicle has to be desirable, rare, hard to find, something like that... it can't just be old.
Pat man your not grasping what I am saying with regards to insurance. There is two ways you can look at it. If your shitbox 1952 chev is barrling down the road at 100km/h and slams into some G's new caddy becuase the chevs wheel fell of (for example). What are the chances that will happen to a 45 year old car rather than a 2005 chev? #1) reason why there is different insurance on older cars, and it tends to be much more expensive due to a higer risk of accident.
Now we can look at it this way, ie your example. When there is a desirable classic at hand. It falls under a certian category of insurance for reasons we both know. Now this topic we are on has compleatly strayed from the topic at hand. a 1968 Ranger with Auto 290 in it is a collector truck. Plain and simple, just like you mentioned a normal teg from an ITR Teg. There will most deffinatly be prices differences etc down the road.
Just because the truck is a shitbox thats selling for $3500 now, doesnt mean its a rip off. Because if someone buys it and takes the time restoring it. They will be the ones walking away laughing to themselves after theyve more then trippled there money from the normal price they paid. Not that it matters because of the money spent for the restore. Thats another topic, its called having a hobbie.
I've got a 1990 Topaz in my yard (last years winter beater)..........Only 6 more years and she'll be a classic. Sweet!
Please refer to this post.
I know in the link posted the truck isnt exactly the same. But its what the ranger was upgraded to the next year/different package.
Can we still be lovers?
EDIT: We're talking about 2 completely different things from 2 completely different angles. Me, I'm taking about 'in general' but you're talking specifically about certain vehicles. I think we're both right in what we're actually talking about!
sure thing big boyeee!
