    It is white, 2 speed, runs great, is a 1972, interior is blue but in great shape for the years and the milage shows 122,000 miles. Lifts excellent, nothing looks to be leaking on the cement, starts easy, etc. What is it worth??

    Without any other data than that.. who knows. Its worth what someone will pay for it.
    That being said, if you decide to purchase an old rig such as this, you better be really handy with the tools. Its probably an old school gasser, which means you better be good at setting points, timing and doing carb work. Parts won't be cheap. Take it to a truck shop and pay to have em look it over. Paying for an hour labor now will save 1000's later.
    If yur not going to do your own repairs and upkeep... save yur money and look else where.

    Ok - asking $4250. Tires are next to new - paint is very good. ALways been inside - used to haul some chopped hay for horses, a load of dirt from 1 side of farm to the other. Used to haul grain but now the box has been lower to dump a small skid over. It did go to a shop - engine was good, there was one brake line that they replaced due to a crack but that is it. IT is gas as well.
