Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

This vehicle is easily worth about $7-8K but I need to sell this quick!  I am mobilizing (again) with the military for a long while and the military recommends you sell your vehicle in my situation.  This vehicle works great!  I will miss the old truck.  In Colorado you can drive it year round because it's generally warm and sunny.  (I can mow the lawn more often than not in November and December because of the mild weather; with the exception of a few days in winter with snow and hail in the late spring and early summer)  Colorado also doesn't use salt like the rust belt.  I am originally from Michigan and this truck would be eaten alive because of the salt.  The high altitude of Colorado also slows rust way down because of the lack of oxygen. Vehicle has been in Colorado all it's life as far as I know.
I believe this is what was known as the "Heavy" 1/2 Ton.  Most light 1/2 Tons had a shorter shifter and no granny gear.  Start this vehicle in 2nd unless carrying a heavy load just to get the tires moving.
It appears to be 79K original miles based on engine wear and clutch feel (if 179K the engine would probably be leaking like a sieve.)  Another tell tale sign is the brake pedal rubber pad.  If 79K, you have some rubber left on the brake pedal (where you put your right foot to engage the brake.)  If 179K, the brake pedal pad is darn near (or already) worn off with no rubber left.
Dual Rear tanks.  Both work and you can switch between the Main and Aux tanks.  
Vents in foot wells work great and so do the wing windows (or vent windows) I sure miss those in newer cars.  It has a "high output heater."
I didn't have the hood and tailgate shut 100% on some photos, but both work fine and closes with no unusual gaps.  Showed in one photo on the grey day the actual tailgate shut properly.  Was in my barn where light was dim for hood 100% shut, but they both shut all the way down.

Aftermarket radio and some really good speakers behind the seat.  

Fly to either Denver or Colorado Springs Colorado after 100% payment and I will either pick you up in my daily driver or drive the truck to either of these airports and you can drive it away. (US Citizen or Canadian Citizen only)  If you opt to drive it away, you may mail me a legal temp tag or registered license plate for this vehicle and proof of insurance and I will install license plate on truck and put the proof of insurance in glove box, so she'd be ready to go as soon as you land.  Or free local pickup. Or you may hire a car carrier to ship it for you.  If shipping on train, I'd be willing to drive it to the local rail yard.
It is a 42 Year old vehicle (2020's are out) so it's not perfect, but with about $1000 invested in it, it will be darn close.  Hail is only really on the hood and it didn't break through the paint or patina.  It has a clean title.
New Radiator
If necessary, I will teach you how to drive this manual so you can enjoy that skill for the rest of your life with your new truck.
It is for sale locally as well, so I may end the ad at any time.  I probably have 7-10 cars stop by everyday when it's on sale at the end of my driveway.  People stop me all the time at gas stations to talk about it.  Everybody loves it.
Once 100% payment is made, I will mail one key and the signed title to you with a USPS tracking number.  I will keep one key in case you decide to fly into Denver or Colorado Springs and drive it away or if you get it shipped, we'll be able to get it on the car carrier.  This truck will drop $100 a week until it sells.  If you have evidence of the trucks worth less, I'd be willing to hear your evidence and possibly make a deal with you.  
Here is a few links of the vehicle starting after a few days and just after it started
