Farm sale coming up has a 1965 chevy grain truck with 15000 original miles. Bed is a Knapheide 13 foot and is the same as new with a very good wood floor. Exterior of cab has no rust at all and inside looks as good as the day it left the dealer"s lot. Paint is still on frame in most places. Looked to be a 327 under the hood that runs a little rough and probably needs a tune-up. Rollover tarp and a factory pull hitch mounted at rear of frame to pull what ever. Tires show gravel damage but have no cracks and good tread. I"m going to try to make the sale to see what the old girl brings.

I will guess $2800 - 3000, sometimes those low milage trucks bring better money than that, but lately, it seems they don't bring much more than a truck of the same vintage that was used on a regular basis with updates.

Just food for thought,If it has hydraulic brakes and it has sat for a length of time you can almost count on replacing or rebuilding all the wheel cyls and master cyl.I worked at a tire store/mechanic shop for 15 years and replaced many wheel cyls that had sat in one spot and the cylinder pitted beyond repair.You could easily spend a $1000 on parts alone IF you can still get them.

One very similar to that with a 16ft box, hoist and no tarp went for $4500 at an auction by us this fall. If i remember correctly it was a 1966. It was one of those that looked like it spent its life in a vaccume chamber. Dad wished he had kept his hand up.

It has been a while since I have been to a sale to see trucks of this vintage sell. Prices 4-5k I have seen. I know this area still has many C50s and C60s from the 1960s still running. I have a 65 C60 also with 13ft Knapheide bed, 327. Very good truck but like already mentioned breaks can be an issue. Mine locked up on me this fall and bleeding the system did not help. has a knew master cyl also. So I might be spending $$ to get it going. But what alternative is there to a truck like this for a small operator. None the less these are good solid trucks.

Cydectin, I would buy that truck for the steel crank. It may have camelback heads too. There is 2k of the truck cost. Or thereabouts. Depends.

Make sure you start it the day of auction and don't take your eyes off it and anyone looking at it, especially under the hood, in the cab/dash/tank. Otherwise, it "miraculously" won't start maybe not even crank when the auctioneer comes around and bidding starts. While that may be getting you a "cheaper" price, you never know what damage was done, some may be too costly (more than the auction price difference).
Take a buddy along to help you watch it. Sad deal but speaking from experience as a buyer of a '53 Chevy 6400 grain truck.

Ralph Bauer, good point...brings to mind an auction many years ago when I watched a fellow from a distance as he rearranged the ignition wires on a tractor.. After he wandered away I went over and put them back the way they were supposed to be. You should have seen the look on his face when it fired right up, he never even bid on it.

It could bring anywheres from $1000 to $4000..It just depends on whom is there..

As I recently reported on here,a like new 1973 Ford F-600 sold for $2800 which everyone thought was too cheap..It had 30,782 one owner miles with a 16 ft bed and hoist and 6 new tires..The truck was flawless and the 330 V-8 ran great...
