Classic Car Overview

I am currently accepting offers on this single owner, 1978 Chevrolet Scottsdale, K20, Camper Special. I have listed a price of $14,999 to get us started, however, because this particular rig is extremely rare, it is hard to set a value. It could be worth $4,999 to one person or $24,999 to someone else. I will entertain all offers. My goal is to sell it by the end of March to the best offer. VIN is CKL248Z129851. The truck was purchased by my late father from a dealership in Southern Oregon. When not exploring Oregon with truck and camper, the truck was parked inside an RV garage. I believe that most of the vehicle is as it was from the factory. He did have a custom bumper installed (do not have the original). The extendable rear bumper (picture) is designed to project slightly beyond the camper, protecting it and allowing a boat to be towed. He also added cruise control and at one point upgraded the suspension to include air bags. Engine should be the original 350 V-8 with 4 BBL. I know he had many of the engine components changed out as they wore. The body is extremely straight with a couple of small dings here and there. A couple of these have damaged the paint with a small amount of rust present (picture). His black lab put some decent scratches on the right front fender (picture). He also used one of the safety belt latches as a chew toy. Interior still looks great. No cracks on dash (always covered). Upholstery is starting to break down on drivers side but still looks good. It runs well for a 42 year old vehicle. Tags are good through 2021. Mileage is at 98160. I have original owners manual, warranty information and dealer specification sheet. As it had not been run for a couple of years we had it towed to a local facility to change out all of the fluids before restarting. Further inspection found that it needed a carburetor overhaul and the power steering gear box and steering coupler replaced (which was done). Tires are a few years old but have full tread. I will try and post a video soon. Please email questions to David at dgshep@charter.net or call me at five four one 778-4680.
