    The prices were 30-40k 2 weeks ago. What is going on with the truck auction prices? They think the economy is about to re-open, nah, we about to have another shutdown :D.

    Why does the ad specify USD?
    Is the truck overseas or do they expect an overseas buyer?

    They always do this whenever there’s a proposed changed to HOS. There’s a 98 there right now, a show truck, sitting at 200k and it’s going higher every week.

    45k is what I’d go for, even with a reman or inframe. Watch what will happen after the elections when the new administration rolls back 2005 emission standards. They’re thinking about it, I’m crossing my fingers. But truck auction prices will reach 7 figures :D

    Not for me they won't.
    I can buy a brand new Cascadia with everything I want for less than 150k.
    Granted, its a pretty truck, but pretty don't pay the bills and I am evidence of that
     
    jsnell and bzinger Thank this.

    It’s basically a brand new pre emissions truck, if it has the low hours to match the 16k stated, with a big cat, yea you can buy new trucks cheaper, along with all the new truck problems, although an acert would be at the lower end of my want list.

    back in 2013 I was at a local auction where a lumber company that bought a couple new Pete’s in 96 for the write off and put them into a barn, brought one down and got 135k for it, had less then 3k on it, from what I heard after the auction was over he went over to the guy that lost and asked him if he wanted the the second one and sold that one as well, old low mile trucks may not be for everyone but they have their niche, and I’m sure they will get it from the right buyer
