Question How much should i pay for these parts?

Hey -

I found someone on Craigslist who is parting out their 83 Ranger. Since my daughter's truck needs a few things I asked if he had what i needed. He said he did and asked how much i would be willing to pay for them. Since I have NO IDEA about any of this, i 'm asking you guys.

I want the entire dash, including the instruments...dont need the radio though.
I also want the interior door panels including the arm rest.

A friend of mine said to offer $50. Im fine with doing that, but I also need to know how much is too much because i'm sure he is going to counter with something. By the way...i havent seen the parts yet. I do know that will determine how much to pay for them. For argument's sake, lets say they are in decent shape.

Thanks in advance for the help.
Stef

For a 83, I would offer no more than 75-95. But start with 50, take 65 bucks cash. If he wont budge for less than 65, tell him you need to get more cash, but you cant get much more. If he is not setting a price, chances are he has not priced out the parts himself. so he should be more apt to take the first or second offer.
That's my two cents!

Thank you. I will send him a message today. When people part out their vehicles, do they typically remove the parts themselves? Or is that something i will need to do?
