Thinking about selling my truck.
Okay so as some of you might know, I have a 1987 K-5 Blazer Silverado. Now, I never posted about my 92 ST, but I had it for all of a fucking week, until some serious problems started going down, at which point dealer agreed to give me every cent of my money back.

So i've been driving this truck that i've had for quite some time, and it's treated me fairly well, except just recently, the tranny (700r4) decided to quit. I'm currently having it rebuilt, and should have it back on the road by this weekend. I simply can't see myself driving this thing anymore, since i'm not into the whole big scary ass truck scene. I'm THINKING about selling it once the tranny is rebuilt.

Specs as follows:
- Engine: 350ci with 150,000 miles
- Transmission: (soon) newly rebuilt 700r4
- New 33/12.50 tires (wheels include original beauty rims, if anyone cares)
- Interior has been cleaned very extensively, only the very back has random oil stains and such, but who lives back there? Also, the seats are absolutely clean, except for a small tear on the left side of the driver's side seat.
- Pioneer CD player head unit along with 4 speakers. Back two replaced with Pioneer speakers, entirely custom job on front speakers in door panels. The head unit is mounted at about a 45 degree angle in the center console, don't ask me why, I just thought it would look cool.
- A/C is functioning, but needs to be converted to meet new standards
- New brakes
- 4WD is functional as far as I know
- 3" Body Lift
- Non-functional dual hoodscoops from JCWhitney I believe.
- The paint is pretty good, but the clearcoat is bubbling up in some spots, some worse than others.
- After-market fog lights which don't seem to work, I think the wiring might be bad.
- Can't get hi-beams on, haven't gone over this problem.
- Has towing package.
- Power windows and power rear window (rear window has tint)
- Power locks, but they refuse to work.
- All new belts and wiring.
- After-market steps on either side.
- After market exhaust tips which make it sound throaty as shit.


..That's all i can think of at the moment.. Any ideas on how much I could get for her?

EDIT: I forgot my engine! I'm making a post because it could make a difference maybe?

My 350 engine is bored 30 over.

Any difference?

kbb isn't exactly accurate considering the idea that some people really want a k-5, and there is no way to factor in a bored over engine

I'll have pictures of my truck tomorrow most likely, when I get it back from having my tranny completely rebuilt.

How much are you looking to spend?

Well, KBB is a starting point. For a baseline stock truck, KBB will give you a starting price. You're probably going to have to make a judgement call on what all the extras are worth. It actually sounds pretty good.

KBB is saying $1755 for an '87, excellent condition, with premium sound, power windows/doors, Silverado, air conditioning, 150K miles, private party sale. The lift kit probably adds some. Just off the cuff, I'd say ask maybe $2500; $3000 is probably pushing it too much. Also check autotrader and see if you can find out what others are asking.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.
