Ugh, we've got a 2004 CVPI with 106k miles coming up for auction out of my department in a few weeks, hoping these prices settle somewhat by then because I'd like to bid on it, but not paying retail or above on it.

That's the last year they had a "real" throttle controller with a cable. At least you got that going for you. That's one of the best attributes - crisp throttle response.

I wonder what a P71 will be worth 5 years from now? I'm thinking more, not less.

I watched the same happen with GM B-bodies years ago. Prices bottomed out, supply then bottomed out, then prices went up...supply does not. Odd thing in this instance is Panther supply is still readily available.

Something similiar is occurring with 2000's pickups though, as these new fangled ones have gotten larger, harder to work on, with more technology in them, the older, easier to maintain & repair trucks are jumping up in price. Old trucks are bringing ridiculous prices.

Im curious to see what it goes for when whoever bought it flips it.

I just sold a nice silver 2004 CVPI with 104k miles. Got $4100 for it. Good luck.

And I agree with you on the trucks. 90's ford trucks up through 2003 generally do much better than ford trucks from the death years of the 2000's to 2010 with the 5.4, 6.0, and 6.4's.
