Last summer I bought two trucks like yours ,v6,cloth seats,roll-up windows ,rubber floor,single cab long box air,auto not manual very good condition and paid $250.00 for one ,$500.00 for the other needing no more than a front brake job on each .I think your value estimate is way out to lunch ,but maybe your area has expensive trucks .
Have any more trucks up there for that price? :P
