This truck was sold originally sold new in the Auburn California area which is where I purchased it over thirty years ago.
Chevrolet estimated there were approximately twenty trucks ordered with the factory options it has (big window, short-fleet, 4x4 and V-8). When I purchased the truck, I found the original build sheet stuck in the back of the seat. It was partially deteriorated but is complete enough to verify the options.
I recently finished a frame-up restoration and it now has 120 miles on it. I plan to drive it to local cruises and check for problems, so the mileage will be increasing slightly.
The truck is 90% original and everything is new or rebuilt. The only things that are not original are the engine, radiator, and stereo.
The engine is a 1968 327 (it originally had a 283). The engine was completely rebuilt by a professional shop (receipts available). It was installed at the same time of the restoration so it has 120 miles on it. All components are new (carb, fuel pump, alternator, etc).
The only other item that is not original is the stereo, which looks period-correct in appearance but has Bluetooth built in.
The entire running gear was rebuilt by a professional shop, receipts available.
* Front axle rebuilt
* Transmission rebuilt
* Transfer case rebuilt
* Rear axle rebuilt
* New universal joints
* New aluminum radiator
* New gas tank
* New wiring (Ron Francis)
* New tires (35 x 12.50 Cooper)
* New brakes, wheel cylinders and master cylinder (converted to dual master)
The only thing wrong that I know of is the speedometer doesn’t register the actual speed, not sure what’s going on there but the odometer seems accurate.
The truck has had Pennsylvania antique plates for about 20 years, I believe they can be transferred to a PA buyer.
The price is firm. To purchase the truck, plan on spending a half-hour to go to the bank with me to verify the cashier check is valid. Once the check is deposited, I’ll sign the title and the bank will notarize my signature (PA state requirement to transfer ownership).
