Today’s Seller Good price or no dice The B-100 says it’s the only version of the dashboard they’ve ever seen in the U.S. Let’s see if it’s priced to be seen in the new owner’s driveway any time soon.
Of yesterday 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 convertible had a lot going for it. Most of its goals have been solved, it well kept in photographs, and it was wearing a fairly new set of tires. However, at 142K, it also has a lot of miles on the clock. That seems to dampen interest in the car even with its $23,500 asking price. In the end, the plus outweighs the minimum, yielding AWD Porsche a 62 percent win Good Price.
As enthusiasts, we often lament the rejected cars and trucks our specific market. The Federal 25-year rule offers some relief to that distress, but even that doesn’t address the cost and machinery required to ship a car from continent to continent. another when you have something as big as the ocean in the middle. But what if the car you want – a car that has never been sold in your particular country – is right next door?
That’s the case today Ford B-100 dashboard truck 1975. Although based on the F-Series, has been sold in the US since forever, the Carryall line has remains exclusive to the Latin American markets. Why didn’t Ford introduce two-, three- and four-door wagons into its biggest and most profitable market? Who knows. Maybe, in the spirit of competition, Ford is worried that the Carryall line will cause certain doom for GM’s Suburban trucks..
For whatever reason, this clever and handsome B-100 panel is here as a private party import, and according to the seller, it may be the only one on U.S. soil.
As noted, the base for this truck is Ford’s F-Series, and everything on it from the B-pillar forward will be very familiar to fans of the brand. Behind that, though, is an enclosed and windowless cabin with utilitarian double doors.
The paint looks like a reasonably recent respray and the truck rolls on polished alloy wheels that give it a clean appearance. All of the glass appears to be intact, as do all the lights, with, notably, the tail lamps looking like they came off a contemporary Dodge pickup. Per the seller, the truck is in great shape and is not a “rust bucket.”
The drivetrain is comprised of a 302 CID V8 paired with a four-speed manual gearbox featuring an ultra-low first. Power steering has been added, however, the truck has neither A/C nor heat installed. Standard F-Series parts should fit in either case.
The cabin is spartan, offering just the basics and a snaky shift lever sprouting from the rubber-clad floor. There are a pair of cloth-covered seats up front, as well as a third, occasional seat in between those. Nothing about the interior looks out of sorts and the seller presents it honestly.
According to that seller’s description, this B-100 originally served a family business “deep in Mexico.” The business must have not required much of the truck since it only has 59,995 miles on the odo. Some of that mileage was likely making its way across the border to the U.S. where it now lives with a clean title and an Arizona registration.
The asking price for this simple and fairly exclusive truck is $19,500 and the seller touts that another Carryall nicknamed “El Chapo” sold in auction for more than ten times that amount.
It should be noted that this particular truck has been auctioned for up to $27K on Bring an intro back in March of this year, there seems to be no sale.
What do you think, $19,500 is now a fair price for the truck as it is presented in the advertisement? Or is this a Carryall with a price tag that makes it uninteresting?
