I figured I would start a thread for really crazy priced 6.5 trucks and Suburbans. There seems to be more all the time. CL or other auction sites all included. Lets see just how crazy they are.
I'll start out with this one I just saw on ebay Chevrolet Other 2500 4WD | eBay Seriously 200,000 miles and $12K:wtf::shake::thumbsdow

I saw a maroon crew cab dually at Apple Chevrolet in York Pa with window paint of $15,000+. Don't have any other details. Of course I didn't really care to get any more with that price.

Work truck with snow plow
Thought it was a misprint at first, but put in the title and description. Can't see what is so valuable on it.

Just realized it's located in Alaska, but posted in Buffalo.... Wha!?

Be sure to save the photos from eBay/Craigslist listings and post them directly here guys, as well as copy/paste the description - if you just post links when the ads/auctions are gone so is the ability for everyone to see them. ;)

A vehicle is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. A nice older truck in excellent shape may very well be worth a higher than Blue Book price. It all has to do with the demand for the particular vehicle, which can include such variables as rarity and region. For example, I just recently sold my 1994 K1500 6.5L Blazer for nearly $8,000. It had 207,000 miles, but was in nearly perfect condition. It is also extremely rare, one of only 1,300 made that year. Even at $8,000, I had about 20 people interested in it after I posted it for sale. The first guy to look at it bought it, and he paid full price. When I sent emails saying it was sold out to the other people interested, everyone was disappointed, and several even said they would have offered more. In retrospect, I should have listed it for $10,000.

So as far as crazy prices go, a high price for a sub-par truck makes no sense. But a high price for something very rare in excellent condition is perfectly reasonable.

The Suburban in the first posting of this thread is very nice, but needs to be a bit cleaner inside. Is it worth almost $12,000? Well probably not to me. But to someone who is looking for that exact vehicle in pretty good shape, it might be. After all, its not like you can go buy a new one, and ones found for half that price are likely crap.

This one is not the highest but pretty crazy 1994 k3500 diesel crew cab 8ft bed
Here is the description and pics from post#2

This truck has been well taken care of. Was owned by my grandfather before he passed away and was well serviced. It has 175k on the body and less than 40k on reman engine. Has the 6.5 turbo charged diesel engine. 4x4 (6x6 if I may) has engine block heater for those cold mornings. Has airbag on the rear axle for load leveling and extra support for more weight. Has a few dings and scratches but hey...its a classic now. If you go to the dmv you can get COLLECTERS liscence plates and NEVER pay for tabs or plates for the remainder of this trucks life. I love this truck and it has served my family well over the years but being that it is a diesel and more of heavy hauler than I will ever need any more I feel like its time for this truck to move on and fullfill its destiny as a real truck. Not just sit around in my driveway looking like a sad sack.i am open to trades such as a crotchrocket + beater car or truck. Or rocket and cash. Doesnt matter come get this beast out of my driveway!! 6.5k 0b0 I prefer text btw
Note: body damage to dualley fender and no pics of passenger side

So far I'm voting for the $17,000 one. Unless the market is that much different in Alaska? But even so seems like fuel is not that expensive so lets say you find a $10K truck in the 'lower 48' you are not going to spend $7K on fuel to drive it home unless there are no roads (paved or ice) where you need a truck. In that case maybe $17K would be a bargain.

It is a 5 speed manual and it has custom seats. I paid $10,500 and had about $2,000 in shipping it from Washington State to Pennsylvania.

Extremely low miles? What is the high pressure tank under the hood?

I'm feeling better and better about the deal on my burban. $800 for a 70k mi k2500. Of course it barely ran, needed the fuel systems gone through, and frame welded....
