What is a good value for a well used '67 Gladiator

It has been many a year since I was on this forum. I sold my '79 J20 after my wife complained about the rust that kept dropping in the driveway. Loved it still the same. Probably the best J20 ever made, 360V8, Quadratrac, TH400, nothing stopped it.

Anyway, enough of the memories. My son now has gotten the bug. He found a '67 in NC (6 hr drive from here), no title runs, but no brakes. Asking $1,700. I told him too much. He wants a rat rod and will drive as is as much as possible. Here are some links for photos:

Any comments would be appreciated.

I mean, that's a $4000 truck up here all day long.

He'll likely want to upgrade the axles/suspension to at least a '74-up layout, to get the disc brakes and parts-availability, and then drop in an LS, so $1500 is a good price for a starting-point.

Yeah, I'd research the title issue before committing any cash value to a truck like that.
Never know, could be stolen, salvaged, something else that entails you can't title it yourself later.
Also, could be a rust bucket inside and underneath, but if it has good bones and can be titled I already love that patina.

No title for me is largely a deal breaker. It's a whole lot of time and trouble to get one in my state. I personally feel with a title it's a $1,700 - $2,000 truck, without I regard it as a parts truck and think it might be worth $800, maybe $1,000 if it has a different engine than the 327.

This is just my opinion because these trucks are gaining in value by the day and seem to be getting crazy money...but I also consider crazy money to be $1,700.

Man, talk about crazy money.... square body chevies used to fetch junk prices in used-up condition - would pay a guy to haul it away. Now, you can't touch a clapped out shell with no drivetrain for a grand. It's crazy. What was worth something a few years ago, ain't worth that anymore. They don't make 'em anymore, and as the more popular rigs get out of the regular guy's price range, other rigs like ours will gain attention and thus value. Like Bob said above, up here in the rust belt, just FINDING something useable is a challenge. I'd offer $1500 and feel pretty good about it,,,,, as long as everything was acceptable. Or offer 1K cash and see where it goes. Who knows. How many other ones like it are for sale, you know?
As far as the title, research what the law is in your state. You may be able to get a salvage title, or maybe even a home-built title. Or maybe with being that old you don't even need one. State rules vary.
