Advice on evaluating 1955 Ford truck
I am a new member.
I inherited my grandpa's 1955 Ford truck. I have kept it in it's original condition with minor repairs and parts replacement.

My grandpa purchased this truck in August 1955, for $1821.52. I have the original invoice. He had just retired from farming and used the truck to "go to town" now and then. I got the truck in 1985 and have preserved it in my garage. It has 41,000 miles.

Almost everything is still original including: paint, bed wood, upholstery, fiberboard interior, and 6 volt electrical system.

I am seeking advice about selling it. I am not really an antique vehicle enthusiast. I know NADA and some other guides offer pricing guidelines. I do not see where the guides differentiate between restored vs. preserved. Any suggestions on how to establish a value would be appreciated. Thank you!
