Look what I found in a field...M715 people click here!

I'm doing some work for a guy and I came across these on his property. I asked if they were for sale and he said make an offer. What do you guys think? I'm a waggy and cherk kind of guy, so this is a little out of my realm. Whatever price I give him would be where is, as is, so I'd have to get them out, but it shouldn't be too bad. Thoughts on value?

Considering condition, Was me I'd hit him with $500 for all 3 and see if he bites, at least it would be a starting point. If he thinks more then go from there.

See if he has the title to any of them.
It is not eazy here in NM to get a title.

But it is possible on any year truck. as long as there is a VIN tag

Nice find! I've wanted an M715 for awhile, but the sellers are almost always asking way too much...
Hope you get a good deal on them If you do end up picking up all 3 and want to get rid of one, let me know. But I wouldn't blame you if you didn't

Wow that is a cool find. I always have a hard time with the value of stuff like that. I find it hard to offer less than scrap price.

5180 pounds.

If you end up with them, Id be interested in some parts to help offset your "investment"

The Vin is in two place. Well not so much a VIN as serial number. Date of manufacture and number are on a plaque mounted to the dash to the right of the intrumentation. The number is also stamped into the frame on the passenger side on top of the frame at the rear wheel and forward of the motor mount....on top of the frame as well.

Looks like $1,186 in scrap at local prices. That'll be my offer. Wish me luck.
