Its a 1985 Chevy C20. It has a 454 mated to a 3 speed tranny. There are 105,000 miles on it. It pulls like a beast. I need to do some work on the electrical system and the cooling system but nothing major.

Well that makes me want to :cry: . My 84 is in similar shape with only 10k less miles, 350/auto, and I gave $4k for it last winter. I almost NEVER run across good deals...

BTW, VERY nice truck. Probably the best body style of anything out there, and, NO RUST, amazing.

Several people tried to tell you that last winter.

Yes, I seem to recall that. When I get in buying mode, I am just really bad at taking advice, and, well, end up paying over 2x what something is worth for it and regret it later.

Great looking truck and a great deal. Looks like a working four speed.

I have owned many 81 to 86 GM trucks and they were easy to work on get parys for.

Clean interior also.

Wish I had pics of my 91 thtough 86 trucks that I have owned.

Nice, I got a 1985 like yours for $2,000 but it only had 58,000 orig. miles and interior as well as body matched the miles. Looked awesome. Then I let the lawn guys get to it - Ran into a Ford Ranger the other day and bent the bumper - Ford was rolled up like a cheap tin can - totalled. Hah - the 3/4 ton truck runs awesome - turbo 400 tranny with the 350 engine. Nice power.

I gotta ask, what kind of gas mileage are you getting? 8 miles to the gallon?
Nice truck, if the A/C still works I would have bought it too.
