Can you HONESTLY tell me what you think this vehicle might be worth and how much should i sell it for?

It is a 1987 GMC V1500 pickup 4×4.I has a brand new stock 350 tbi engine and new 700r4 tranny and 208 transfer case.It has a new Eaton rear differential and new exhaust..It also has a new 4" suspension lift and new 3" body lift running brand new 35" tires.EVERYTHING under the hood is new including cooling/heating and electronics.New throttle body and fuel pump.Interior is in fair shape with electric windows and locks.The engine&tranny only have 4000 miles on it.The truck is still in fair shape.No big body problems,some rust holes and surface rust.If the body was redone,it would be a new truck.Floorboards and bed is super strong yet.Runs excellent.How much should i honestly ask for this vehicle?I have dumped my heart and soul into it but i know that doesnt account for anything.Any opinions would be appreciated.Thanks.
A "bluebook" value isnt gonna help.I'm sure its gonna say the truck is worth about 0.Bluebooks do not see all the extras you put in a vehicle!!
Also,my avatar does NOT show the vehicle that i am selling!Not even close to it.

    I'd say if you sell it now as now is the time to sell[trust me] -you should get a good $2000+ for it easily -any "running truck" and thats barely even -is worth $5-600-yours will be worth more if the body was done up and a cheap paint job put on-if you do paint it paint it a light color [hides bondo] also this will bring it up another g to $3,000-Im on most of the time and this is an easy one..

    go to and put in the info and it should give you a reasonable value. It is what most people use as a general guide.

    Unfortunately, it's worth whatever someone will pay. Ask a high price, around $20,000 and see if there are any nibbles. If not, lower the price. Treat it like a house for sale. Sell it to the highest bidder.

    The vehicle you are selling only appeals to a limited amount of people. If it were just an 87 GMC 1500 with a newer engine and transmission but only a fair interior and some body rust, I wouldn't pay more then $2500.

    But the suspension lift, giant tires and body lift might make it undesirable to many people. Couple that with the fair interior and the rust on the outside (especially the rust holes), you won't have many takers once they get past the new running gear. At least fix the rust holes.

    It also depends on where you live. If you live in a more urban or suburban setting, you won't find many people wanting this truck. In a rural setting, I could see some people buying it or someone buying it as a project (really trick it out or just bring it to a total show vehicle condition)

    This is a 20 year old truck, no matter how much blood,sweat and tears(or money) you've put into it, nothing will erase that fact. Good luck. I would start the price at $7000 or best offer. If no one looks at it, lower the price until you get some action.

    the rust is the killer for me…
    here in California we won't buy a car with any rust..
    that said i would say you could still get $3,000

    when you add things to the vehicle that aren't stock you usually end up eating those items price wise when you sell it unless you can find someone that wants all those extras, good luck.
