Everyone else is smoking, compliments of the "free and easy money" being thrown around today.
The hang over is going to be a doozy....
That or these are actually the new baseline prices.

Who knows how this plays out, but as an old guy it seems much more unreasonable than run ups in the past.
Perhaps this is the beginning of an inflationary run where a $1000 at today's exorbitant price is nothing 18 months out because everything else is moving that direction too.

It also seems that in today's world people seem to think that because they put X amount of dollars into something that it equates as being worth that much more than if they hadn't of spent the extra dollars on it.
Expectations are askew and not necessarily in tune with reality.
Seattle area Craigslist has a lot of FSBs flirting with the 10k mark even though most are 5 or 6k rigs. Several of them have been for sale for years at those prices.
Serious seller?? or dope smoker?? (the song: "why do you think they call it dope" comes to mind) or maybe they bought and heaven forbid, financed it and now looking to sell with a high bank note payoff...good luck on that....

Look at the explosion in value of sports memorabilia...going the same way as the housing market. With populations increasing basically exponentially everywhere, and markets like China suddenly having huge disposable income bases, there are more buyers than ever before for all sorts of stuff. IMO, that's what's driving these big price spikes in a lot of cases. And if I'm right, corrections will be subtle, not crashes.

I have a spare C6 in the '79 parts rig. Hmmm... 56k miles? How do you blow a trans out in 56k miles on a stock lookin' rig, much less a C6? My old '89 had AOD. Interior looks fine. Appears well used but not abused... in pics. Has another Bronco to work on... doesn't need two but still looking to possibly trade for another project. Interesting.

$5k?!? If I put all that time, money and effort in less than visual items, you can bet your ass they'd all have a picture, at least.

Yeah, if I ever sold mine it would be an under hood shot, shots from underneath, and then one of the outside from half a mile away. Lol.

I'm more offended by their punctuation and grammar. Add that to the photo laziness and you've got a seller that has an uphill battle to gain trust.

They say "harder to find under 5k and so on" but if I wanted a project I'd pick up this one not their rusty, no confirmation of any actual new parts rig. 3.5k cheaper, already has the lift installed, less rust, and all you need to do is swap the drivetrain out of the included truck and into the Bronco.



Or even closer location to the original ad is this...https://spokane.craigslist.org/cto/d/coeur-alene-1990-ford-bronco-eddie-bauer/7313672022.html Almost the same price, but better condition and same year.

Too bad it is not closer. I'd love to have some rear sliders.

Can't remember if there was a significant difference keeping me from using those in my 5th gen. Anyone recall directly? I could snag the whole top and use the frame work for a clean, custom soft-top too.

Not sure, but Broncograveyard lists the same window seals for the top from 80-96.

It was my understanding that 78/79 was it's own special deal and then 80-96 was different as far as side windows goes. The only difference I know of within the 80-96 range is regarding the rear window. Something to do with the angle or curve of the glass or something like that at some point within 80-96.

2nd gen is very different and I also recall some difference in the rear window curve somewhere in the 80's, not to mention some have the mounting stud differences too. The whole topper wouldn't work and could be a moving violation for removal of the 3rd brake light if you ran into a knowledgeable cop with a chip. Regardless, if the windows were compatible with my shell, as the gasket listing would suggest... I'll have to shoot that guy a note and see what he'll take. They look clean enough in the pic.

Even if they end up not fitting, if you can get them cheap enough you may be able to flip them for a profit or at least break even. I have to do that myself when I consider picking up parts I'm not sure about. "Would somebody else want this thing?" If not, then I usually don't risk the coin on the chance.

Well, he said his latest offer on the topper was $400. I think I paid $50 for the last set from a local JY but the lot lizard cut the gaskets to get the sliders out and that killed the whole deal, which is why I wanted to whole top this time.... mostly. I still paid for 'em but passed 'em on to @RicoBronco who was rebuilding his own sliders. Told the guy I'd give him $100, might go up to $150 but I doubt I'll hear back from him. Oh well.
