We have three vehicles to look at today. The first is a 4×4 1976 Chevy truck, the second is 4×4 GMC longbed and the third is 1976 Chevy Blazer. All of them can be found in various places on the internet like Craigslist and Ebay. They are great examples of how easy it has become to shop for vehicles or find comparisons for the vehicle you are shopping for or selling. The last time I sold a car I found three or four online just like it for around $5000. Low and behold when I traded it in I got exactly $5000 for it, which was great because trade ins usually don’t bring as much money as selling to individuals will. Lucky for me it was during the financial meltdown and the dealer was desperate to sell a new car.
Alright, here we have a 1976 Chevy truck for sale in Denver. The listing is a bit curious because the owner’s selling point was the ability to convert this truck into a plow truck. Couldn’t that be done to any truck? And isn’t that a bit of a niche market? I guess that’s one way to set your listing apart from the others but saying something else like it’s a great starter truck or project truck would reach a wider audience. How many people could possibly be looking for a potential snow plow? Anyway, this 76 Chevy truck is a 4×4 with a 350 engine and new tires and is listed for $2500.
Our second truck is lifted 4×4 1976 GMC longbed. The engine is a 454 big block and the tires are 37 inches. The owner is selling it because his daughter wants a truck but this one is a little too much as this will be her first vehicle. I tend to agree. That’s a big truck for a 16 year old to navigate. This does mean that a trade is possible if the other person happens to have a more manageable truck with a shorter bed. Other goodies on this 76 GMC include a custom grill, dual gas tanks, cowl hood, and turbo 400 transmission.
Bringing up the rear end of our post is a 1976 Chevy Blazer for sale on ebay and it’s lifted to the heavens. It almost looks like a toy with the paint job and over-sized wheels. I imagine for the owner it was a toy. A very expensive one as they claim to have put $30,000 into it. You can buy it now for $13,000, but the costs won’t end there as it only gets 2 to 3 miles per gallon! Good lord. Don’t let any hippies find out about that. They will claim you are single-handedly melting the polar ice caps and causing the poor, cute penguins to suffer. But don’t worry about that because the warming is going to kill off the polar bears, seals, sharks, whales and any other predators so the penguins should prosper!
