I'll get right to the point...
I am seriously considering purchasing a 1946 chevy 3/4 ton pickup.
I am curious on it's value and what I should be paying for it.
This truck has never been restored and the engine is shot.
There is less rust than most 46 chevy trucks I have seen around.
The truck is 99% complete and needs a COMPLETE restoration.
What is it worth... $500, $600 $800?
Thanks for your help.
"Low Retail" is for a running, driving truck that just has minor
cosmetic and/or mechanical issues... the truck is worth whatever
someone's willing to pay and the owner is willing to take.

No one, but if only one or two are sold in a year, it is not a good
indicator of value to others. Most vehicles from the 1940's are sold by and
to collectors, not retail car lots.
I any case, the value in in the eyes of the beholder, the selling price is
what someone is willing to pay for it.
I can see you are not a collator. There are dealers all over the country
that specialize in old, special interest, and collectable cars and trucks
that are sold on consignment.
The price published by NADA are indeed the used car prices that somebody was
willing to pay and somebody was willing to accept
Do you own search of nadaguides,com. They will state if there are not
sufficient numbers of sales and they do not list a price
You are however free to believe whatever you choose ;)
