    You have a truck that is in the last generation (1968-1972) of collectable Chevy pickups. The mileage is good. The value will be largely determined by features, options, trim line, and condition. In a very general way, the v-8s are more desirable, and the stepsides are worth more. The 4x4 is a plus. Rust is the biggest enemy of these trucks and hurts their value the most.

    If the truck is real nice, consider hiring an appraiser. Small differences in condition can make big differences in value. You can also check ebay for actual selling prices (click on "completed sales" for '68-'72 only when you do a search).

    Even if the condition is less than good, you will have no problem selling this truck. Collectors or restorers won't touch a '73, but will be interested in your '71.

    To get a rough idea you can look at cars.com, autofinder.com, and ebay. I get a lot of info from the 'completed listings' on ebay, that shows what folks actually were willing to bid, rather than just asking prices. Take a look and see what similar trucks went for.

    If you see comparable year and condition 2X2 trucks for sale, add 15% for your 4X4 equipment.

    A quick look at 'completed listings' shows '70-'71 Chevy pickups bidding to the $5,000 - $10,000 range.

    That range sounds about right to me, unless it were some kind of super-restored show truck/street rod. But for a clean stock 4X4, that seems about market.
