What`s it worth.
I have been trying to sell my 88 Burb without much success.It has a rebuilt 6.5 diesel and a straight rust free body.Needs a paint job and a few minor things but has many new parts including a radiator.Its a 2500 4x4 with a warn winch.I figured that the rust free barn door body would be worth something as well as the motor and new parts but I am not getting a lot of interest.Really what is a rig like this worth.I would welcome any comments.Just got a call on it from Canada while I was writing this.Not trying to sell it on the forum but I need help pricing it fairly.

What are you trying to sell it for? A decent price can be quickly figured by watching both your local craigslist and autotrader sales for a week. The ones that sell are priced right... the ones that are still listed are priced too high. I wasn't pricing your body style when I searched for mine, but I quickly found out the range for 1999 year models selling in my area.I like you.

If it wasn't half a country over, it would be sold to me in an instant. I love that bodystyle, been wanting 4x4, 3/4 ton, and the 6.5 diesel spearately.Christopher

Crawdaddy- I follow CL- just NOLA CL- I usually see one or two of those diesels a year.The last ones I saw had really beaten up bodies-real POS "RUNS GOOD"-the asking price was low-under $2000 is my memory- but they were junk money pits.
I would guess a good body 88 4x4 with a proven "good motor trans" would be worth maybe $3000-$4000 or so around here-maybe $1000 more if the AC works.
Where the OP is-Oregon-I would guess a 4X4 would be worth a bit more.
If the paint is really horrible that turns some folks off and sometimes makes it a tougher sale.
Here in NOLA it would sell quickly at $2500-OK at $3500- very slowly at $4500- never at $6000(now it might be worth $6000 to someone if you can prove the rebuild motor injection "stuff" etc)
Some folks LOVE DIESELS!!(but a used one can be a horrible money pit if it needs work-wearas a SBC 350 you can always get a new genuine Goodwrench for $2000 dropped curbside-one of the main reasons folks love those 350- 5.7-cheap to fix reliable )
In NOLA we have a lot less rust than the midwest and NE. Does Oregon use salt on the roads? If so a good no rust body is worth more.
If you are priced right- just be patient- you'll eventually find someone who really wants that good body with a diesel that isn't worn out.
Injector "stuff" rebuilt replaced also?? That is worth some $$-
Be patient and check comparable sales/asking prices in Oregon
Check Ebay for comparable Suburbans withn a 750 mile radius
