How much would a 1950 half ton truck in non-running condition be approximately?
The red Dodge truck was running when parked inside approximately 25 years ago. It is not too rusty. It has a tail gate and wooden slats in the back.
I would really appreciate a response since I am buying it from my dad to restore and I want to give him a fair price for it.
Thanks a lot!

Here is the book from collector car market, who in my opinion can sometimes be on the conservative side, great for purchasing. Be sure to consider the differnt condition levels.

Good Luck!

It's not worth a whole lot... mainly because it's a Dodge... If it were a Chevy or Ford ... it would be worth a lot more.... that being said... not everyone has a 50 Dodge truck - I like being different and I've xeen a few of these done up quite nicely.

I'd say a few hundred dollars is plenty. I'd also recommend "rodding" the truck as it's stock components are hard to find and not all that great to work with once you find it. Putting in a newer engine and different (safer/more modern) suspension and brakes are a plus. This may sound like a major undertaking but it's not as bad as one might think. Read a few Street Rodder mags, and Custom Trucks mags to see what can be done and what parts are available. Build it the way you want it. make it SAFE, and enjoy it.

I have a 1951 Dodge B3B pickup that I restored. Everytime I am out in it, someone wants to buy it. I gave 800 for mine quite a long time ago and it was in drivable condition. Looked tough though. Now it is fine and I love it.
Almost everyone has a Chevy or a Ford. Gime me a Dodge anytime.
