Value of 1970 Chevy C10 Pickup

I have a 1970 C10 Longbed Fleetside pickup truck that used to belong to my grandfather. I need to sell it because I need some cash and I am trying to determine how much it is worth. I have done some searches online and found prices from $8,000 to $50,000.

This truck needs a lot of work so I know I am on the low end but I do want to get as much as I can for it without being unrealistic in my expectations. I used to drive it once or twice a month but about 2 years ago I just parked it and I have not driven it since. It ran fine the last time I did drive it. It has a straight 6 engine with three speed shifter in the steering column. There is also significant rust in the body which would have to be repaired to get it into great shape.

Everything on the truck is actually original equipment, including the drum brakes all around. (not sure if that is good or not). Considering the fact that I have not run it in almost 2 years, I am sure that the gas in the tank is bad and who knows how much work would be needed on the engine to get it in top running condition.

Based on all of this, can someone give me a ballpark on what you think I should use as a staring point when setting an asking price?

    I would say $1200 to $2000 is all the money here. A decent "work truck" running down the road with no rust would be $4,000 to $6000. A clean driver inside and out would be about $8000 to $10,000 and a stunning show truck $20,000.
