Hello, I am posting this for my brother, he has a ford 7.3 power stroke diesel 14 foot bed box truck but it does have some electrical issue so it doesn't work, but he is looking to sell. I thought he could go to a scrapper but I feel like it has to be worth more than the 7 cents per pound they want (minus the tow fee too). The engine and body is in good condition,any advice on how to sell or like who to contact--other than junkers????

Put an ad in Autotrader and on Craigslist. Maybe even on eBay. Just be honest up front about its condition. You are quite right - the motor alone on that truck can pull in several thousand bucks. Even a core 4R100 transmission is worth $500+. The PCM, IDM - lots of small parts run $100+ each. If he'd take the time to part it out, he could make a lot of money off of it.

Or atleast someone will respond to the ad and make an offer so they can part it out.

Expect to get lowballed.

Are you sure its not repairable enough to get it running?

Even a poorly running vehicle sells for alot more than a non running vehicle.
