    Is it it just bidding wars in the heat of the moment, or am I out of touch with reality these days?

    I suspect the buyers might be the ones out of touch.

    I'm not trying to be "that guy," But its a Hodge podge. power doors weren't available until 77, the dash badge and fender badges are 73-74 (cheyenne super was already replaced with silverado), grille is a 77-79, fuel doors weren't on a 76, intermitent wipers weren't until 77, gas pedal is a 73, headlight knob is not a 76.
    It's a nice looking truck but to say in the description that it was restored to its original condition is a little misleading, and to most people doesn't make a difference, but is something to think about when dropping 30g.

    I didn't bother to look closely at it, but I was wondering how many things would be found if someone did. (By not look closely, I mean I glanced at the pic and read nothing, lol). I can't recall the last time I ran across a "restored" auction square that didn't raise a bunch of red flags as to its true lineage.

    And someone does need "to be that guy" or else these will get so watered down that no one remembers those details anymore.

    No, thats not the case. I’ve purchased Barrett-Jackson auction vehicles and paid less than half of what the seller / consigner has invested. As often stated ...”you can’t build it for that” !

    There's no disagreement that you can't build one for what you can buy one for, my point is more to the fact that because these are popular right now, the prices tend to be more inflated than they should be. Especially for a type of vehicle that is still fairly common, or the ones that are obviously collections of parts from several trucks. If we were talking about a documented one owner, original condition truck that would be different altogether.

    Many of the options and features changed ever couple of years on these trucks.
    It could be the case of putting on what's available or what they like.
    Some prefer the grill of one you over another.
    If you have a 76 and want power windows and locks you use 77+ doors.
    Say you like the hood of the 79 so use install on your 78...

    As mentioned, the fine details are lost but it is nice to see our trucks as highly appreciated.
