Classic Car Overview

  • 79 Chevy C30 Dually Flatbed Partially Restored
  • This Custom Deluxe C30 with a carbureted 350 starts right up, and runs and drives great. 145,000 original miles. Brand new, super tight automatic transmission with about 50 miles on it. 
  • I partially restored the truck where it’s located, in Lakeside, Montana, but then ran out of time and had to return home to Georgia. I don’t have the funds to ship the truck out here, or the time or funds to work on it right now, so this classic square body will be finding a new home. 
  • The truck comes with all of the interior and exterior parts to complete a near-original restoration, some new, some from salvage trucks, mostly to replace less-than-perfect parts, like the grille, the bench seat (I found an original vinyl bench seat that needs some patching; patching products included). New locks on driver and passenger doors have been installed. If you are interested in the truck, I can send pictures of all  parts included with the truck.
  • Minimal body work (some small dents) needs to be done. One new quarter panel from a donor truck has been installed to avoid more body work.   
  • The truck also comes with high-quality, automotive, two-part urethane paint and activator to restore the interior and exterior to the original tangerine orange. 
  • I stripped and cleaned the interior (the original orange paint is in great shape inside); with some taping it would be easy at this point to put another coat of paint on the metal interior parts.
  • The original (I think) wood decking on the flatbed is solid; I just had to replace a few pieces. My plan was to re-seal the wood with teak oil or spar urethane or polyurethane or marine epoxy. 
  • With the right tools and skill, the restoration could be complete in a few days, and the value of the truck could easily be double the asking price here. Or this could be a project truck, finished slowly and lovingly over the winter.  
  • Because it’s mechanically in outstanding shape, the truck could either be a cool, vintage work truck, or completed the right way, a showroom truck to preserve and take to events to be appreciated. 
  • It seems to be a very well-preserved stock GM carbureted 350. As is, it feels strong and fast.  
  • This truck is a perfect blank slate. I love it, and I hope it finds a home either with someone who will love and keep it, or finish the restoration and make a good profit. 
  • Please contact me so that I can make arrangements with my parents, who are kindly storing the truck for me. They will be happy to show the truck to serious potential buyers, or to work with a shipping company for those buyers for whom the posted picture and videos, and talking to me on the phone, are enough to make a decision.
