I found this Cabriolet for a fairly decent price... But tell me what you guys think its worth? Its got a 12valve Cummins in it (185 hp non intercooled) Overall its in OK shape the interior looks decent, the motor looks pretty good not sure on the mileage... There is rust here and there and in the bottom of the one door the rust is fairly bad as you can see.... How much would one of these command?

6? 7?

I would say as a rig, 1500-3k.. then add the 12 valve, and the price should triple from the 1500-3000 mark, improved mileage, towing capacity, blah blah blah...

What do they want?

That is Centurion Cruiser III not a Cabriolet! Cabriolet and Centurion were to different companies. Granted both made Cruisers. $500-$1000 for the Cruiser body and then add whatever the going rate is in your area for a 12v. Those Crusiers of that age had a fiber class back to the cab and they are known to leak. Check the roof where it's mated. if there is water damage then youll have more work to do and in turn should lower it value. I would say its in the $500-3K area. It's to good low ball and see how the dice roll.

It's hard to say, depends on how much work it needs to get it to what YOU want, and then how much of that work you can do yourself.
Ballpark, I would say $3Kish but willing to go to $4K. That Cummins is a nice addition. If my 460 ever sh*t the bed, that would be what I would do.
If it helps, I paid $2850 for mine, needs new tires, the interior needs to be redone, doors need to be replaced, and a paint job. But the engine is strong, so is the tranny.

Stock most were C6.
With the Cummins it probably got swapped?

im thinking it was a swap. thats the first cummins powered ford conversion i have ever seen that was "factory". im pretty sure early ones came with non-turbo 6.9's and later the turbo 7.3's, but never a 12 valve cummins. and the gas motors but those are way different. i would say that particular one you can try to get for 5k.

Until 93 they would be all non turbo 6.9/7.3L from Ford. Ford did not offer a Turbo version of it's IDI motor until 1993.

Eric your right about the swap...:D

Unless they snagged the cumstain from like an F700 or a bus, then it could be a c6.. Hell it could be an Allison too.

case in point...

I had a 98 F800 with a 5.9L and Allison, nice truck power combo for power. The dog has a point.

that cummins has to be a later model conversion cummins didn't introduce the 12 vavle until 1984 and it wasn't used in a production pickup until 1989 in the dodge pickups overall i would pay between 500- 3000 depending on condition of the interior and performance of the truck
