"74 Ford F-100 Pick-up Value?

I know this is a weird place to ask but I have not been able to find any info on this. I need to sell my 90 year old grandma's old truck and have no idea what it is worth. Edmunds and all the other places I go for newer vehicle prices don't go back that far.

1974 Ford F-100
1 owner Bought new
straight 6
3 speed on the column
no power steering or power brakes
159,000 miles
Still runs but is missing on one cylinder.

Any help appreciated!

A vehicle of that age is worth only what someone is willing to pay for it. Really if you think of it, a 30+ year old vehicle with 150K on it is not worth much. This is not one of the most sought after vehicles but for the right person could bring some $.

Could you post a few pictures of it so we can see what we're talking about?

Now if it had 50K miles, had a perfect body and was always garaged it may be worth a few bucks.

Considering the condition, $500 would be a good offer.

I just looked on eBay Motors, and it looks like $500 - $1000 is what these are going for. I looked at a range of years before and after '74, because there's only one 1974 F-100 for sale there.
I can't complain, but sometimes I still do.

Check Autotrader Classics. There are 31 listed F-100's between the years of 71-75.

Here's a 73:

That guys going to get excited when he gets a couple of hundred hits on his ad
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Might be better off donating it to an accredited charity for the tax benefit.
