Because people are full of it and somehow think they are 'worth something' . For that much you can get an Early bronco with 302. People these days. Guys that know what they are worth usually have them for less than 2500, that way they actually sell.
yeah what 86 said, mine has a james duff lift, good tires, aftermarket rims, straight body, good paint tons of new parts, and i can't even get someone to buy it for 3k, will probably wind up taking 2600 for it at this point
