As of a few days ago, that would be about $14,550.00 American. My math may be wrong, but last I checked the Canadian dollar was worth 97 American cents

Par

I just checked a currency converter online and, $15,000CAD is actually $15,069.46USD
But for you "MR_Q", lets just make it par.

"96blkbeauty" - pics are coming soon,...as soon as i can load them on supermotors, and link them here.

silent one - remember, the canadian economy is now stronger than the US economy, so shit now costs more for you folks down south. :twak

i think its fair,
5 grand for the truck (remember perfect condition inside and out)
5 grand for the brand new engine.
5 grand for the lift, tires, and everything else.
=
$15,000

You got fawked....I put a mustang roller in mine with factory stainless sportys instaled for 3K, I also got 8 inches of lift vs. your 6 inch and once again that was 3k with tires!....somebody raped you!

Either way like someone said, you never get that back.
I mean think about it, why would someone pay the exact price of a truck you built, when for the same money, they could build one to their specs. :shrug

If his is worth 15k with a rusted out tailgate, mine must be worth at least 20k since the tailgate is 100% solid. :doh0715:

Not like you haven't heard it from everyone else...but I will post too....just because I can.

Like said before...it is not in perfect condition, and you will never get out what you put in. Stuff like lift/tires/exc do nothing for the value of a vehicle. Why don't you find out what the blue book value is of the car and start there? My guess is the value is something around $6,000 dollars American.

Why would someone buy a used bronco for 15k when they can go out and get a brand new truck, everything new, for 5k more?

I dont know what the market is like for Broncos up there in Canada, but I bet you wont get that. Hell, if your truck sells up in Canada for 15k, please PLEASE, come back and report it here. I think everyone will try to sell their rig up in Canada then.

Cheerio

WTF $6800 for a street Five Oh??? That thing better be gold plated...same with that $5000 lift.

I know you have every right to list it for whatever you want, but jesus...let's be realistic. Maybe things are different up in Canada, but I don't think you could get 15k even if you parted it out...

In my experience, Broncos do tend to fetch a little bit more in Canada. But not THAT much more. They are the cheapest in Alberta. The prices in Saskatchewan (where I live) tend to be the highest that I have seen. In my area its winter for close to half the year, and they love their winter hobbies here, too. Ive heard that alot of guys use them for towing their snowmobiles. Hunting is also huge here.... So my area has a good demand for Broncos..... but no where near 15K worth of demand. And we do get totally screwed up here when it comes to buying new cars We pay WAAAAY more than you Americans do, and from what Ive been told, American dealerships are no longer aloud to sell to Canadians. Pretty soon our backs will give out from spending so much time touching our toes..... Sorry for the rant, lol

Back on topic. Maybe you should consider keeping the truck. You have put alot of money into it, and its more or less a new vehicle. Just enjoy it. If you need cash, quit smoking (if youre a smoker), and if you drink, quit that too. Also try eating less, lol. Id still really love to see some pics of this truck.
