    i have been recently looking for an older chevy or gmc stake body or mason dump... this is basically what i am looking for... 80's style chevy or gmc gas or diesel 4x4 fair condition. not a rust bucket but something that will work for me and with some paint will look presentable. i live in de. so if anyone knows of anything or has any ideas on where to find one give me a hollar. thanks

    I don't know if you are in an area where there would be many farms around. But you might want to find an agriculture related newspaper and try the classified ads. I know a lot of farmers in my area that have older farm trucks with not to many miles on them. They may have a little rust and will smell like a farm inside(nothing one of them little christmas trees wont take care of) but would make a nice work truck.

    A friend of mine just bought a '84 3/4 ton chevy with a plow for $850. A little surface rust and around 75,000 miles

    I was mad I didn't find it first. Actually, I knew the guy he bought it from, but didn't know he wanted to sell it till it was to late. Like I said it was a farm truck: vinyl seat, manual trans, AM radio, no A/C. Nothing you would want to take a date out in, but one nice plow truck though
