Sell it on Craigslist. wouldn't hurt to put what it is on here as well, somebody might need it for parts especially if its old.

It's a 73 ford truck that hasn't been driven in about three years it has a 302 engine 3 speed trans with a 9 inch rear geared 362 and it needs a steering box. What I was wondering is which scrap metal yard around here pays the most.

I just talked to the guy that hauls for the scrap yard and he said it would bring about $500 for scrap. If you want it for that price come and get it.
dont do it

Man dont let them crush that old ford. I have plenty of connections to old ford groups that will love to if nothing else use the parts. I hate to see one of those go to the shredder.

Well you had a lot of talk but when I told you what the man said you suddenly fell silent until after it was sold.

You kind of disappeared after the last few people made suggestions. I actually waited to see if you posted any more info and looked on Craigslist to see if it was posted there. Man you should know something from that era, 70's on back will sell especially for no more money than that. Maybe they will part it out hopefully, I just hate to see them crushed.

I posted Sunday night and said what the man told me it would bring and that if you want it to come and get it. I had to give him $50 to haul it. I don't see how you thought I disappeared. I didn't need the money really I needed it out of my driveway because the monsoon we had last week rutted up my driveway and I need to work on it and I didn't have time to wait around.

Don't get too upset I know where there is a 72 at that the steering box is messed up on it too. The ones that had manual steering were tough on those boxes and if you find one at a junk yard they go for about $150 - $200 and you'll be lucky to get a year out of it because it's about worn out when you get it. A new one or re-manufactured one cost about $500. I was going to switch mine to power steering but never got around to it. That's not cheap either as you have to have the steering column steering box the pump and hoses and the big bracket that goes on the front of the engine. All that stuff is as rare as hens teeth and people that have it know it and price it high.
