  • 66 or 67 W200 slant 6 with Power steering in the junk yard

    Is this something worth pulling off? All I see right now is the p/s pump, and pulleys, could not see if there is a ram under the truck due to snow, and ice.

    I would be grabbing all of it.

      I agree, I would grab all of it, I would grab the entire truck. Does it have the large Knuckle front axle?

        I am considering asking what they want for it...... And I have not looked it over too closely. (how does one discern the large/small knuckle front end?)

        What is a reasonable price for a complete truck, that does not have any sheetmetal worth saving?

          You can count the number of bolts on the back side of the knuckle itself, I believe the counts are 8 or 12 bolts on the back side of the felt retainer.
          if you look at the knuckle cap itself the bolt pattern is significantly larger, take a look at your own truck and use it as a comparison guide. If you know which one you have snap a picture of it in your phone and take it with you.
          you can always check the door jamb of the truck also, sometimes it will reveal what the truck has for options, as long as someone didnt swap it out along the way.
          On my 67 the tag is on the drivers side lower back portion of the cab itself.
          As far as price, I guess that depends on the chassis itself, and what parts remain. A good set of axles and an NP201 transfer case are fairly valuable by themselves anymore. Spare driveshafts never hurt to have lying around and so on.
          If the parts are all there and look to be in decent shape in my opinion 1,000 dollars isnt out of the question. But, always try and get the best deal you can especially if you have found a diamond in the rough. Good luck and post pictures of this junkyard treasure.

            I will bring a camera with me on the next visit, and talk with them about price.

              Don't call it orange peel, think of it as no-slip grip!

                They will let it go for $500. I may be mostly interested for the sheetmetal it will provide, and Not feel too bad about cutting it up b/c there is very little left. Thinking it will be a late october project, where I ether go and part the truck in the yard, or have a flat bed move it here.
