In the dump truck business

Recommended Posts

It was one of those deals where my son and I are grinning ear to ear on the way home thinking " I can't believe we got this truck for $500" and the guy we bought it from is standing there in his driveway grinning ear to ear thinking " I can't believe they gave me $500 for that truck"

I've done a lot of those deals,they are the best!

i remember when we could buy up (my grandfather and I) old B model parts trucks for 250-1200 a truck. god the good old days. now everyone around these parts sees shit on tv or the want ad and they think their junk has gold frame rails

yep,I miss those days too,Matt. Pretty hard to pay 1500 to 2000 for a rusty,non runner just to keep it from going to scrap. Kinda nice to get a runner in halfway decent shape for under 1k.

Yea when scrap prices went thru the roof was the final nail in the coffin on cheap trucks

yup same here in upstate Ny. about every B model I knew about 10 years ago is long gone now and if we didn't buy it it went to scrap or might as well have. I remember we bought 2 B42S's 1963 and 64 with heavy front axles for $100 and $200 a piece about 10 years ago.. both had excellent cabs and 80 grand on the clocks. were site trucks all their lives but just beat.also bought a few B61 parts trucks for two and 300 bucks a piece. those were the good old days.
