Opinions on this s10?

http://www.arkautosales.com/vehicled...?VID=149344438

The mileage is about 117k, I would try and shoot for $3k.

Thanks in advance for opinions, and suggestions!

Re: Opinions on this s10?

Looks pretty good. I think 3000-3500 is the highest they'd ever get for it though honestly. 3k might be a decent price. is there anything wrong with the paint on the fender well of the bed?

Re: Opinions on this s10?

i was going to say something about the passenger fenderwell....looks to be rust maybe?

if the interior isnt torn up i'd say go for it. just all depends on what your plans are for that truck.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

yeah, looks like it has some bubbling around the wheel well, definitely something I would look at a lot closer..plans for the truck are simple, daily that I might lift up a little bit, simple and clean. thanks for the input so far!

If you inspect the truck and see that there is more rust i would definitely try to go lower on the price. just my opinion though.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

Both the posibility of rust and apparent lack of interior photos makes me nervous too.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

I'd hold out for a newer model. I own both versions of second gens and '00 up are my personal favorites. That is pretty expensive for a '96 too.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

i wouldnt pay more than 1500 to be honest, low miles but doesnt list the mileage?
if the fenders are bubbling up it's a only a matter of time before the cab corners rot all the way out

also idk if the door is open or what but this looks weird to me

Re: Opinions on this s10?

I agree with them. Expensive for it's age, rust is definitely starting.

My 1999 Bravada will be posted today for $3,500.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

^3500 is cheap, would sell for 5-6 clean down here.

IMO 2000 is my favorite year, on the 2.2 there is no EGR and no smog pump, so its a win win. 4.3 i'd try avoid that smog pump crap.

$9,976!!! Ouch.

That's ridiculous. you can find mint condition low mileage 4.3 with 5 speed (or auto) zq8's cheaper than that.

Crew cab s10's don't even sell for 10k anymore.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

Yeah that s10 is a bit high for $9K....but then again it looks really clean and well kept. which would be worth it IMO.

^I have two 2000 model s-series one does,one doesn't.the weird thing is my '00 Sonoma doesn't its a vin4 and my '00 S10 does its a vin5(flex). I always figured the GMC model would have the extra stuff.arent they supposed to be higher end?lol.

not having to deal with the secondary air shit is a plus.

Re: Opinions on this s10?

The 1996 S-10 you posted is way overpriced (as everyone else has pointed out). It looks decent, as far as the body goes, but should be more in the $1500 - $2000 range, tops.

The 2003 you posted is a VERY nice truck!! I see it only has 41,XXX miles, and looks brand new on the inside. One of the better S-Series I have seen in a while (especially for being 10 years old).

However, almost $10k is high!! If you could get them talked down on the price, it would be an amazing truck to have.

You might have better luck checking private party sellers. Dealerships are typically going to be quite a bit higher on their prices than a private seller will be. Plus, a private seller would also be more inclined to negotiate on the price.....typically speaking.

That '03 looks to be in amazing condition, with extremely low miles. If the seller will come down on the price a bit, I would definitely try to get it.

If not, no big deal. Just be patient, one will come along. Luckily, there are LOTS of s-10s out there!!

i wasn't aware of anything at Kmart...but i do regularly attend the cruise-in at Bessingers....and i heard about a car show at O'reillys in Goose Creek a couple weeks ago, & i drove by to check it out...some nice stuff there

you may not know, but Street Rods Unlimited also started a new cruise-in at Northern Tool in North Charleston...it's every 3rd Saturday of the month, from 5pm-until

That sucks man. It was a nice truck, but it was a bit over priced though.

Like I said before, there are a lot of S-series trucks out there. You will find one!

Hell yeah. If you could score it for anythign less than $2500, you should be safe. I assume you cant test drive the vehicles from that site or anything, right?
