What are 1979 Chevy Silverado pickups going for these days?

I want to buy a '79 Chevy shortbed pickup, but I need to know what deals are good. Does anyone know of any websites that will let me see what they should cost? KBB will only go 20 years back and I do not want to be in any club or have to pay for anything to find out. If you do not know of any sites, do you know what they are running for in your town or in your local papers (and if so, what town it is). Thanks for your help.

    A truck that old wont have any value via "the books". They'll estimate its book value and how many miles it'll have on it. Price for one would be really low.

    You'd have to find a person with one and see how much they'd sell it to you for. Because as I said going off book value you shouldnt pay more then 200 dollars for one. But if you go find one with 200 in your pocket and the person your buying it from has put some work into it. They could jack the price up.

    I have a 78 malibu book value is about 100 dollars. But all the work I've put into it I could easily get 8,000 for it. Plus the milage is a big factor too.

    I've seen a few in our local news paper (Little Rock, Ar Gazzette) but they've had work because one guy was asking for 3,500 for his. Another guy was only selling the motor out of his for 200. So you see where I'm going. Hope it helps.

    Pick up a copy of Old Car Price Guide at your local newstand. It's about $6 but will give you value based on condition for everything back into the '30's. Not sure of a website for them though.
