I like buying vehicles from conservative old men! The typically see minimal use, receive great care and are in decent condition.
The nephew of the original owner put this truck up for sale, as it didn’t suit his needs and he wished to convert his inheritance into cash. His uncle bought the truck in Central WI. That it lived its entire life.
It has been driven just under 114,000 miles. It must not have hauled much, as the inner box fenders aren’t all beat up. It was protected by Ziebart rust-proofing, a spray-in bed liner, a bed mat, mud flaps and being kept in a garage.
There is not much corrosion. You can see surface rust beneath the undercoating, but the frame, cab and supports are not rotted. The body appears very original, yet I see subtle evidence that it was repainted. Certainly long ago, as there are scratches, chips and touch-ups. It still looks great, even from ten feet away. The rear bumper is rusty.
The interior shows some age. The dash pad is cracked and the portion of the seat where your butt will reside is tattered. The rest of the interior looks very nice.
So to improve the truck you could replace the upholstery on the bottom of the seat, recover the dash and replace the rear bumper. All this can be done for under $1000. Or just drive it as it is.
The powertrain is all in very good condition. The fuel injection helps it start easily and run efficiently. The 700r4 overdrive transmission shifts properly and efficiently. The four-wheel drive works as it should.
The parking brake pedal is wired up, so it must not work properly. The original radio was replaced by a nice sounding AM-FM/Cassette. The spare and jack are with the truck. Otherwise, everything is working well. The doors lock via key. The tires are deep in tread.
This is the last of the square-bodied Chevy trucks. It has the desired fuel injection and overdrive. They are becoming more popular, as they are collectable and very nice to drive.
There is a lot of life left in this truck. Just as you might expect from a conservative old man.
