Thinking about selling my 95 Eddie Bauer. It’s in great condition with the 5.8L v8, 6 in ch lift, 158K miles, receipts for everything down to the car for the last 5 years, custom steel bumpers, winch, rebuilt tranny, really good body and paint within the last 5. Nothing wrong with it but the needs of the family just don’t fit with it. A decision I am sure I will live to regret as they rise in value. like I said I have receipts for $20K into it from myself and previous owner. The question is how much should I ask? I tried to put on Facebook for a day and received a bunch of insults from people either didn’t appreciate it or thought I was desperate. Either way, we wont make that mistake again. Any thoughts would be appreciated on a fair asking price. Live in Louisiana. Thanks.

Here in Dallas it would list around $24k maybe a little more depending on proof of records, interior, etc. I wouldn't think you would have trouble selling North of $22k. it just might take awhile for the right buyer, with cash.

P.S. They probably thought you were desperate because who in the right mind would sell that Bronco. It looks clean!
Lol. Good luck with your listing. I would surely miss mine if I sold it.

Yeah, I'd say ask $25k & who cares what whiney little bitches on Facebook say, leave it on there. I don't have a Facebook account, and I never will, but that sales area is the one reason that seems decent, but i am absolutely against socialist media.

Fb is ridiculous for selling anything for what it's worth... Depending on what the inside looks like I could see that listing anywhere from $19,500-$23,000. I see what places like worldwide vintage Auto are selling them for and go from there, up or down, depending on condition. People up north here are more than willing to spend the extra $$ for clean southern cars. I found mine in Texas on eBay from a dealership and had it shipped to nwpa. Possibly you could list on eBay? And I know Auto trader does private listings. I think if you want the big bucks you have to advertise where you'll reach us northerners...

I'm in Arizona and I think here it would be in 18-20k range. Based on what I've seen nationwide, probably low 20's. You'll definitely miss it because it's a bad ass truck not so much the increased value. If at all possible, I'd keep it but good luck with your sale.

I agree with others about Facebook. Its like everyone wants to prove how little Broncos are worth. I personally don't get it, why wouldn't we all want our trucks to be worth MORE? The short answer for me is it really seems to be location and buyer dependent. I have seen the 20K+ asking prices all over the place. I actually saw one listed on FB the other day for 40K. Are people actually getting it? I'm not sure, no one lists what they actually sold it for. The higher end asking price seems to be associated with stock low mileage vehicles (which counts me out lol) There is a guy on Facebook flipping said Broncos, he advertises that he will fly/drive anywhere and pay a premium. This tells me that he has found a market for the 20K plus asking price.

Yours looks super clean. I don't think people will pay extra for your 20K in receipts, but its a great selling point for asking a premium price, if that makes any sense.

I did a quick search here in Colorado . I know you are in LA but just pointing out that they are all over the radar.

21K here: Ford Bronco 1995 Eddie Bauer - cars & trucks - by owner - vehicle...
14K here: 1995 Ford Bronco - cars & trucks - by owner - vehicle automotive sale
10K here: 1993 Ford Bronco XLT - cars & trucks - by dealer - vehicle...

For sure don't let the keyboard warriors on Facebook bully you into doing anything.

It all comes down to what its worth to you, and your financial situation, and the reason for selling it. If its just something you have that you don't need, but also don't have a big need to get rid of it, then put whatever price you want and if it sells it sells. Everyone wants the most for their ride, but everyone else wants to get the best deal out there, so we have to play the game. Personally i enjoy the game thats why i have had tooo many different toys over the years.
The secret is putting it out there as much as you can because you will find that one other person who wants it as bad as you want to sell it and there won't be any haggling. Did that with a Jeep a while back. One guy had the nerve to try and discount all the things i had done to it, things he would have to "redo" or "undo" all the way down to the brand of winch I had on it!. I just told him this wasn't the jeep for him, go buy a plain one. THe next guy came and it was exactly what he wanted and he didnt hesitate to pay my full asking price (because he wouldnt have to pay extra to do all the work i had done) Good luck!

It's worth more if you get exposure to buyers in rust belt states and the East Coast.
People in the SW and other states where salt on the roads and rust isn't a major factor - they always scoff at high prices, because rust free examples are the norm - not the exception.
List it on Ebay. Put a reserve on it.

Or list it on Facebook Marketplace and don't worry with listing it on Bronco Groups. For the most part the Facebook car groups are ridiculous. I tried to help someone out recently - they were told by numerous people on FB that a certain part for their late model Mustang (digital instrument cluster - started in 2018 as an option) is $2k + just for the part. I pointed out you could order it from a FORD DEALER with a large online parts presence (Totally legit I've ordered from them tons of times) and get the SAME exact part for LESS than $1K. I had all these idiots telling me "that's a Chinese knock off no a Ford part"...I even literally posted a link to actual FORD DEALER with the part.

Here's the trick with Facebook marketplace for vehicles - it has worked for me and friends / family MULTIPLE times. Take the amount that you'd be SATISFIED with selling it for. Add $3-5K (in your case) to that. That's what you advertise it for. Then when someone offers you less - which ends up being what you want for it (or more) you feel like you did okay and the buyer feels like they got a great deal.

It worked with my son's '11 Silverado - sold it to an out of state buyer in 2 days. Zero issues.

If the inside is as clean as the outside and the drivetrain is solid - I don't see you having trouble getting $20K out of it. Right now the high dollar sales are normally original (or back to original) examples with no lift etc.

Yo Mgrippi,
Welcome!
I'll move this thread to Noobie section for better visibility.

BTW, we'd like to help you sell your Bronco here, however our Classified section rules state"Members with less than non-padded 50 posts CANNOT participate in FOR SALE or Want to buy sections." All due to spammers who preyed on our members too many times. Not that we think you're one of them, but we need to apply rules fairly.
Good fortune if you decide to sell!
Al

Glad you posted this and I saw it. I'm in exactly same boat. 95 XLT. Restored everything. Leather interior etc etc. I'd forgotten about bring a trailer. Good call.

I see here in Michigan that a non rusty bronco is worth a lot. There is one for sale for 38k, given its a 30,000 mile truck, but its not uncommon to see 25k for a $215,000 mile Bronco here.

I will say I am on my 4th, Bronco, 3 of them I had when I was in my 20's, and the 4th one was after 20 years of regretting selling my former Bronco's. I looked for years for the right Bronco to replace what I missed the most, which was my bullnose, & and all I can say is, the money i sold it for was quickly spent & it cost a hell of a lot more to buy again, years later.

I'd list that on Ebay and Craigslist at $29,900 see what happens...
FB Marketplace you will get swamped with calls, texts from tire kickers...
most FB buyers/sellers are flaky...they don't follow through with info/sales/payment,
they just stop replying, and waste your time.
you certainly don't want to lose on it,
don't get trapped into a desperation sale, wait it out you'll get the most $$

I've been looking lately for second troublesome vehicle and everything I've seen that looks like yours is around 20k.

Depends where it grew up too. That's a biggie.

On a peripheral note, my preference is for a stock truck when I'm looking to buy. I'm very skeptical of major part swaps, lifts, and other shenanigans that may indicate abuse or ignorance. A winch bumper isn't quite that bad, maybe. It's not a dealbreaker but a turn-off. No offense either, they're useful and cool and whatever. Build your truck how you want. But I feel like stock is harder to find these days. What's the opinion of community out there on this as it pertains to value? Are stock rigs harder to find? A better value? Worth more or less?

And now that I'm saying stock, I mean basically stock, HA! Sag, steering shaft, simple upgrades that improve but don't really mess with the stockness of the engine or suspension.

Anyways, nice looking truck. It will sell fast.

When I was looking I wanted stock. No lift, and it was like trying to find a unicorn. Of course all my guy friends are like throw a lift on that bitch, and I'm all like yeah don't think so... I agree that some people, especially those who are mechanically inclined, tend to see those extras and think wonder what they fudged up putting it on and end up changing it out themselves or avoid it altogether... But then you have that other side of the pole where some cat is looking for one that's already been all done up to so they can just get out to enjoying it... People are all over the map and you'll never be able to make everyone happy, but all you need is 1...

correct on all points IMHO original is more valuable, harder to find here, the final arbiter being good condition AND original. there's a tendency to over-restore due to the Barret Jackson and Gas Monkey Garage/Counting Cars mentality....and end up with something like a rolling Vegas neon sign, with a Christmas Tree under the hood that would put a Harley Davidson to shame. Some restorations and mods look like a kid went crazy with his mom's credit card at Summit Racing and JC Whitney...then it's gotta all be undone, cuz one person's tastes doesn't reflect what 90% of others would prefer....with a stock truck, you can fix what's left, instead of un-doing what someone else did, and fixing even more. when too many hands get in a vehicle, there's a trail of broken, unfinished stuff that's harder to repair, than if just left alone. such as stripped fasteners everywhere. often times more harm than good is done, with offshore parts inferior to OEM Ford stuff. stock untouched IS getting harder to find as time goes on, that's unavoidable.
