Help needed to buy a 71 Cheyenne

I can certainly understand not posting a link, so no one else jumps on it, but you really need to post more information. Nobody in the world can even remotely value a truck from what you have posted. I have seen them sell anywhere from, $500- $50,000.

Re: Help needed to buy a 71 Cheyenne

Would it be better to post a link to a pic gallery? Truck has new radiator and alternator.

Link to the photos of the truck. Please keep in mind-this is rural Alabama/Mississippi. You can throw a rock in any direction and find a C-10 in some type of condition.

Re: Help needed to buy a 71 Cheyenne

Im sure opinions will differ greatly. Is the roof rust just surface or is it rusted through (which is what it looks like to me). If its just surface rust, i would say its a 4k truck around here. If the rust is through, i would have a hard time touching it at all. Maybe 1500 as a driver. It is a cheyenne super which is a big positive

Re: Help needed to buy a 71 Cheyenne

I would say in the $3-4000 range if it runs and drives and has a title. Looks like it need lots of little things, but being a super is a plus.

I have a doner cab roof. How much trouble is it to cut/replace that section? Iíve got any type tool or cutter that would be needed. I have a mig welder and a Lincoln stick welder. I have been known to spread a bit of filler also. Plus I also can spend the night in a Holiday Inn Express watching YouTube videos of C-10 owners repairing their trucks!

Re: Help needed to buy a 71 Cheyenne

IMO, Look for another truck. Some rust is expected. It looks like it has more than it's fair share.

Ive never replaced a roof but its probably not awful if your good at body work. I just assume if the roof is rusted, when you get the paint off of it, theres going to be a lot more rust than is showing through. So i guess it depends on how far youre willing to go with rust repair, or if you can locate a clean cab.

Re: Help needed to buy a 71 Cheyenne

I have replaced a roof and I don't recommend it but it is possible. The inside structure once exposed to water, channels it between the drip rails, down the back of the door jamb and back of cab skin as well as to the rubber gasket around the windshield. You can see it in one of the pictures on the driver side where the door is open. Unless you are looking for a rough truck to beat around in or to part out, I would pass.
