Another Pricing Question

I'm a virtually non-existent lurker, but noticed the thread about 1st gen 4runner pricing being out of control. I was thinking about selling my first gen Taco and also noticed pricing being out of control. I saw one with 400K on the clock and the dude wanted $7k. Another with 144K wanted $9800. Of course there's the $4k trucks as well. It's all over the map.

Of course I'm asking because I want to sell my truck. 113K on the clock, seen a dirt road twice, never wheeled, matching topper, new bilsteins, rear air bags with compressor, V6, stick, xtra cab, great tires, even have an extra set of new ones, etc. Basically what you'd want in a never molested Tacoma if that was your desire. The clear coat on the top has peeled off, that's about the only thing I can think of that's wrong with it.

I was thinking before I saw the insanity of listing for like $8200, but now I have no idea.

What is going on?

I usually go off what either NADA or Kelly Blue Book says:

But doing what your doing now is also a good idea.

It also depends how much you like to negotiate, for those who like to do that they purposely start high to try and get as much money out of the deal as possible.

I forgot to mention that blue book never seems to work so well on anything coveted or over 10 years old. And Tacos are coveted. Both kinds of tacos. But not 10 year old edible tacos.

I'm thinking $6-7k is about an average price for that truck. I don't see anything wrong with asking $8200 and see if you get any bites. Take anything $7500+ but work the numbers if they low ball you.

Yeah I've noticed that too with Kelly Blue Book.

So that just leaves NADA, which I use primarily anyway.

geography plays a role in it too. Tacos are worth their weight in gold out here in CO (I see youre from erie) where in Florida I had a friend who couldnt give his away.
