    Default Price question old ski doos

    A friend of mine is selling items from his fathers jam packed shed as he is getting pretty old now. I need some price ideas on the package. All were running when parked on a trailer and placed in the shed. I plan to keep one sled and sell other two. If I make money it will go back to family. 1. 1970 Nordic in nice shape. 2 1978 TNT 440 that may be missing a carb. 3 1979 5500. Thanks for your input.

    Well, itís just my opinion (and you know what they say about opinions).

    I think you would get a little more buyer interest in the Nordic but it is also a good vintage sled to keep from a collecting standpoint. Based on your description it could probably be priced in the $800 - $1200 range in running condition.

    The TNT is a bit of a mystery, as there doesnít seem to be that many around. In non-running condition, Iím thinking maybe $300 - $500.

    The Blizzard 5500 would definitely be the lowest maintenance sled (better carbs and CDI) and should also be the fastest and the best riding by far if you were to keep that one. A lot of these get converted to drag sleds. If it were me, that's the one Iíd keep. If itís a good runner, Iím thinking somewhere in the $900 - $1500 if you decide to sell it.

    As always, it doesnít hurt to start high and negotiate but there will always be low-ballers and buyers you can never please. Iíve had guys say ďit canít be that nice if thatís all youíre askingĒ and others say ďYouíre asking way too muchĒ Ė on the same sled.

    Of course, based on my past behavior, I'd probably keep all three
