Does a 1995 GMC Youkon have interest?

I am out of my league when it comes to post war cars. Friend stopped by today and has decided to sell his 1995 Yukon .

He is second owner, 284K miles, white, leather interior. They moved here from the south and I did not see any obvious rust.

Located 90 miles west of Hershey and it can be in the flea market. I know nothing about values or interest in such things and am just trying

to help a friend so please don't be to hard on me. Thank you

JAK, 

 

Pre-1992 Suburbans are where the interest lies -they are climbing in value. The 1995s are still dormant as collectibles.

 

If you go on AutoTrader you can find 1995 Yukons/Suburbans with a lot less mileage in nice shape for reasonable prices.

 

If I bought a Yukon with 284K miles, I would plan on having to rebuild the transmission for $1,200-$1,800. Figure that amount into the purchase price.

 

 Now, if you converted it to steam, you'd have something.

Well John and David, what if he sold some of my pre 1920's  parts out of the back of his Yukon located in my flea market space

I was thinking, he drives me to Hershey with my parts in back, sitting in my space looking after my stuff while I travel around looking to spend money.

This grand gesture of mine would satisfy so many folks, those who grumble about people just parking there, no early parts, no buyers and on and on. You guys

have dashed my hopes!  Guess I'll have to stay home since I can't afford the gas to get there.

Eli he did have the transmission rebuilt some time ago.

Don't forget about the differential, they tend to go on those 1500 series trucks anywhere after 150K miles on up
