Its all in what you want. The truck has very little collector value and the newer (1987+) can haul more, haul it better and with better mileage. While it only shows 47K miles you have to remember in 1973 a car was worn out at 100K - that's if the mileage is correct.

I personally wouldn't consider giving anywhere near the asking price. From the pictures you can tell the paint is in pretty rough condition and the rest of the pickup is by no means "slick". If it where a garage kept pickup with no rust the price wouldn't be all that bad.

Not sure about the old cars being worn out at 100K ? Because back then it was standard practice for the odometers to be rolled back.So it was really hard to know the TRUE miles on something. Even new ones that were demos were rolled back.

Why do you think the odometer only went to 99,999? Once it hit that point nobody really cared about the mileage. Some would go way beyond that - but most would not - many had a hard time just making it to 100,000K miles.

Carbed engines that turned much higher RPMs at highway speed wore them out very fast - especially in the early 1970s.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

My thoughts on any vehicle as old as a 1973 is that the odometer is irrelavent. I would be much more concerned of the over-all, general condition and appearance than I am of how many miles the odometer is showing. Engines and transmissions can be rebuilt or replaced and then you're good to go for another 100,000 miles. If the body is totally rusted away, you may as well let the scrapper have it.
