I saw this local ad, but it sold very quickly (and probably way too cheap). How much do you suppose this may be worth?

ONE HELLVA FIND I'D SAY!!

At first, I'd say 15K$ is cheap, but then considering that it has probably not been fired since '72, (that's 34yrs!! :eek that's probably a good number.....

Eventhough it was kept inside, I'd say there MUST/WILL BE rust inside the engine, trans, rearend from sitting 34yrs!

Other than ALL fluids, battery, tires, belts, how far/much would you guys go through?

I'd have to do a close inspection on the brakes,and pressure test the cooling system. I'd bet the axle seals and pinion seals would leak after a while of driving it too. Hard to say without looking at it up close.

You guys would DRIVE it?

I'd say to a collector it'd be worth maybe $50,000. Restored Broncos often fetch $20,000. The fact it's never driven certainly doesn't devalue it. Call it New Old Stock and judging by what NOS items sell for compared to good used it's a gold mine. I heard rumor it went for $5000.

I'd say 5K$ was WAY CHEAP!

Yeah, I'd drive it! But then I'm not a collector either. Nor do I think I would give 50K$ for it if I was a collector!

I hear what you're saying about stripping it down and selling off all the NOS parts and make more $$, and I know some folks do it - but I think that it would be kinda cannibalistic to do that to such a NOS vehicle!

I guess I'd rather see it stay whole and be driven & taken to shows/cruises than to disappear off into a thousand UPS boxes.

I don't have a problem parting out a wrecked or blown up car/truck, but that '72 had to be way too NICE!

Just my 2 cents,
Ryan

I'm with you,Ryan. Keep it together,and enjoy it for what it is. There's no sense in parting it out,but it shouldn't be a trailer queen either. Too many of them around. That doesn't mean I would go bogging with it.

I sure wouldn't suggest parting it out I was just comparing NOS parts prices with NOS car prices. I think being new would triple the value over a restored or clean used Bronco. As soon as it's driven it's just another clean low mileage used truck.
