94 12v price?

My boss owns 2 Cummins and i asked him about selling me his 12v (he is getting up there in age,89, so he didnt really need the 12v). He hasnt thought of a price as of yet but the truck is a auto with 370,xxx or so miles. The rockers are shot and some rust in the front fenders. It has its fair share of dings and scratches (its a farm truck). What do you guys think it would bring? It seems to start fine but it needs some tires and probably governor springs. And then on top of that, is making this a 400hp or so truck risky for engine life with that high of miles?

Around here a truck like that isnít very valuable, 3k for a running/driving 2wd truck like that a bit more if itís 4x4. If itís well taken care of there is no issue Turning up the power on something with that mileage but if the trans is stock it will hate added hp.

3500$ tops with that mileage and Rust .

Someone will have to put a big effort and money into getting it to pass state inspection to get it back on the road .

If the engine has been maintained 400HP won't be a problem. Some would prefer a higher mileage engine to do performance work to because it has just started to wear in.

If you've got serious body rust, that makes the frame a little worrisome as well, though they make em pretty thick. If the frame has rust issues, I wouldn't buy it at all, unless I just wanted the motor for some other project. If the frame and motor is good, maybe $1.5-2.5k, depending on how much maintenance it needs (Are you gonna have to replace worn shocks? tie rod ends? steering gear? u-joints? the list goes on). Add $500-1k if the transmission has been recently rebuilt, though you'll need to do more work to an auto if you want to add much power. Add $500-1k if the interior is in really great shape, but that seems highly unlikely on a high mileage farm truck.

Still, if the frame is good, and the electrical is not too ratty, and you can find a donor body/interior in the yard in good shape -- 1500s are the same sheet metal, and a lot easier to find -- or you're handy enough with a welder and bodywork, you might have the base of a pretty nice truck at a good price if you can get started cheap and want to take on a project.

1997 2500 CCLB, NV4500, 3.54s. 389k on the clock. Just getting broke in.
I talk a lot of crap and sometimes it might sound like I know what I'm talking about. I do not.
