Depends. A relative gave me a 1982 Oldsmobile which was garage kept and had 24K on the odometer. Looked great. Mechanically was junk. Every seal on the thing leaked. AC no longer worked. Radiator looked like river water. Dust it off and drive it for a month. If all is OK it may fetch a nice price.

It is not like the Olds. It is in perfect running condition. What's a "nice price"??

Depends on the purchaser and what they are looking for. Off the top of my head I'd say check out the price of real condition 2004 model., then add a few thousand. The money is going to be in finding the right person who wants the vehicle. It's over 25 years old, so technically an antique. Advertise it as such, add a few grand, and see what bites you have. It appears you are not in a hurry to sell, and more time in the garage will not hurt.

Oopse, forgot. Seem a few 85-86-87 models with low mileage going in the 3G range. Some tricked out models as high as 14G's. Yours seems to be more along the stock/showroom variety, which is good. Really cannot tell without a peek. Ask 5G's and see. That's a good price even for someone looking for an inexpensive work truck. Maybe 7G's. You can always haggle in a downwards direction.

Thanks OJ............it's worth way more than that to me.
