What is it worth?

I'm going to sell my daily driver 84 Full size 4x4 Blazer.
It was Originally purchased in Indiana and was used to plow snow for one winter before being brought to LA, California, so it was set up with heavy
duty, quad front, suspension, heavy duty transmission with cooler, and no power options. No a/c, no power windows, no rear interior trim, no headliner. Has cruse control and power steering, power brakes, which are standard. Painted red with black roof and rear cover. Back fiberglass cover has been off only once in life of vehicle, last month. New carpet and interior looks clean and complete, no major damage or defacing. Has never towed anything, no tow hitch.
Since I purchased the Blazer from the original owner 2 years ago I have replaced the 305 with a rebuilt 350 from a 1973 Monte Carlo, now has about 40k miles on it, long motor only, all other original parts retained. I replaced the exhaust with a 3" Magnaflow from the manifolds back about 2 months ago. New, 2 weeks old, 33x12.5x15 Yokohama Geolander 2s on Ultra 5 spoke alloys. Rebuilt Rochester Q-jet carb, this week.
Passed smog last month, this is a federal vehicle so has 12 less sensors than Californian Blazers. Also had the auto serviced 6 weeks ago.
This is a great, simple, clean, 4x4. No pretence. Not perfect, but looks great.
Have spent too much time and money on this Blazer and need to concentrate on other vehicles, as informed by wife.
Any Idea what I should be asking for the Blazer?
Thanks for any input.
Can get some photos if this would make pricing easier.

I see some really nice early 80 Blazers every week at the auction. What they go for at the auction doesn't matter but most that buy the nice ones retail them for $2000-$2500, with the very best retailing up to $3000 and very occasionally $3500. No rust, 88-92 Blazers commonly go for $2500-$4000 around here
A '91 diesel Blazer was just sold off of a nearby used car lot for $3250. While it wasn't perfect, it had a straight body, no dents, some faded paint, minor scratches, 155,000 miles, no rust, interior worn but serviceable seats. The dealer got it late Saturday, I looked at it on a Sunday, when the lot was closed, and returned early Monday morning to buy it as I wanted a diesel. I was two late, three people had already been there, and the first bought it.

well, what I would do is go to kelly blue book's site (or something similiar), take into account what the going rate for that blazer is worth, and if it is kept well, and has more than it came from the factory with, I'd say, on average, ask maybe 1000 or 1500 more depending on its condition

You have a GENUINE collector's vehicle there. Depending on the lil' lady, hold onto it for the price YOU want. About 1 and a half months ago I paid $4300 (down from 5k) for (what I believe to be) an exceptional 1990 GMC Jimmy. Power windows, power gate, power mirrors, power steering, power brakes, vanity mirror passenger side, virgin hardtop, new alternator, new starter, new oil pan [rust bubble seeping oil], clean clean clean interior, 4x4, warn premium locking hubs, fresh paint, 1 month old tranny, 110000 miles. Things wrong that I noticed at time of purchase: tail pan was rusty, driver's door doesn't close without 'gentle' slamming. Now that I've had it for a while, it needs about $350 (largest chunk being the tail pan) to be A++ mint. Now there is no way I can honestly say I didn't over pay for it. THE highest I could get KBB to say it's worth is like 3.3k... I felt this truck to me was worth 3.7k to 3.8k, but I get what I want!

Thanks KJ,
I might have a buyer for 4K. He approached me as I was telling a friend that I had to sell it.

Just curious as to how you think this warrants collectors status? An '84 K5?

Yes,
That would be nice to know. Although it is a nice Blazer, I have only thought the interesting part about the truck is that it was set up from the factory to do snow plowing, but how many other trucks were done the same way? If it was an earlier one maybe, but 84, I don't see the collecterbility.
Good question.

Let's put it this way. I regligeously follow the postings on eBay, and look at more pictures of K5's then naked women. I'm not the only freak out there. Whenever you are selling something, it is ONLY worth what someone is willing to pay for it. It's not sticker price, it's not invoice, it's not anything like that. If you find the right market, you can make the $$$$.

Ok, that's fine and dandy. But what makes this truck a "GENUINE collector's vehicle"? Your words not mine. Of course it's only worth what someone will pay for it, That doesn't make an '84 K5 a collector's vehicle. I'm just curious why you say that is all.

Well because I have 4 vehicles and 1/2 of them are of the same style. People are freaky about their Blazer's, that's what makes them collectable. Why are spoons collectable, thimbles, underwear, toothbrushes, etc? Cuz 'der be freeks.
