Classic Car Overview
1979 Chevy K30 Custom Deluxe 1-ton 4X4 full size truck. Rare factory optioned non-dully 1-ton. Has Dana 60 front and Corporate 14 bolt rear differentials (4.10 gears). NP205 transfer case with 32 spline count shafts. In 2003, completed an E-Rod conversion to Electronic Emission engine, before that was a thing. This included a 2002 5.7 Liter Vortec engine and 4L80E automatic transmission with overdrive out of a 2002 Chevy E3500 van. In 2007 (30K miles ago) this same engine was upgrade and rebuilt as a 383 (6.3 Liter) Vortec stroker. This combination is AWESOME and very torquey. I have never dinoed but it runs very strong. Definitively more horsepower and torque over a stock engine. I average 14-16 mpg on the highway. I have installed a duel Flexilite cooling fans. Accel billet distributor and Accel coil. Cold intake and numerous custom add-ons to the engine bay, please see the pictures. Tires are Cooper ATP LT285/75R 16 Load Range E all terrains on 16X8 MB Motorsport black alloy wheels. Suspension lift of 3" leaf springs in front and 3" block in rear. The rear bumper is a Ruenell with a 10K lbs.receiver hitch. The front winch bumper holds a 12K Warn winch. The bed is covered and protected by LineX bedspray and is topped with a heavy duty aluminum canopy with wagon style doors. The canopy will allow full 4'x 8' sheets of plywood/sheet rock for loading. The truck was repainted six months ago in a matte white finish with texture rock chip protection on the rocker panels. The entire truck was re-wired with a Centech wire harness and fuse box. The interior is custom with VDO programmable gauges, trailer brake w/controller, black leather bucket seats with center console/seat, Lokar automatic transmission shifter, and JVC CD stereo with Pioneer speaker behind the seats. Many other custom features that are too many to list. If interested contact me for more details. I hate to sell this vehicle it has been with me for the last 20 years. It is an extra vehicle that doesn't get driven more that 1K miles per year in the last 6 years. I have only put 69K miles on this vehicle since the year 2000 and has never been in an accident under my ownership.
