Well in rust free states, you can pick em up for 800-1200 bucks, but they should be selling for $1500+, but if you can get those rust free trucks to a rust belt state, I've been selling them for $2300+. BUt you think of it, it's a 32 yr old truck, there's gotta be a ceiling on them 'cuz you'll start bumping into the 80s-90s yr trucks and you can get those for 2000-3000, either way, they all need work and all cost $$$. I mean a truck is a truck, just the rare or specialty ones will ever really be worth more I think..

@jimbob
I've seen the price steadily rise of the past 5 or so years here in Colorado...and either deals are being made or a lot of these older Dodges are selling for close to their asking prices. Either way I don't know...but good condition trucks are becoming more and more scarce! If anything the old trucks are easily starting to surpass the '80s and early '90s trucks (except for Cummins models of course).

@macho781988
Salt on the road causes rust...water alone won't cause rust as the paint protects the metal. Colorado uses sand on the road...not salt. So unless a vehicle has sat neglected for years, never had snow removed off of it, or has damaged panels where water could get at the metal they tend to be pretty rust free.

Also, the underside, frames and such tend to be much easier to work on than those found in the rust belt. My '93 W250 lived in the mountains it's whole life -- at a ski resort -- no rust, nada. I did shocks this past weekend and was able to brake the nuts with minimal force (no heat, PB Blaster, etc) on a 24" breaker bar. How many trucks from the rust belt would be that easy (a '93, '78, whatever!) ;)

I bought a yellow 1978 short bed macho for $500. and I bought the silver one that looks like your for $400.00. The silver one was missing the roll bar but had the original tires with it as well. Neither one ran and both have lots of rust.

my frame just has surface rust theres no holes on the frame that ive seen thr rocker panels near the bed need attention theyre rusted through, the bed is clean aside from that one fender well but the floor pans are unknown but i bet in some places i can stick my finger through. but i think for 600 bucks to see its a true macho and the 360 ran even with a knock and she runs now just with a 318 and a law mower tank attached to the roll bar. hey do any of your guys dodges ever have started problems? where it just drains the whole battery and wont start unless you pour gas down the carb? is it my choke?
