    This is a California truck that I brought to Kansas in 2005. The engine and transmission have about 25,000 on the rebuild. This truck runs very strong and is my daily driver. It was inspected from front to back last winter and got a clean bill of mechanical health. The four wheel drive works great.
    The interior was recently restored. It has a few minor dents in the passenger side door and the clear coat on the hood and roof are peeling. The cruise control does not work and the rear window sticks. Overall this truck is in great shape. It has never been lifted or modified and it has not been taken off road.

    I am moving away for college and can't afford to keep the truck anymore. I'm asking $5500 or best offer. Feel free to post here or send me a PM if you have any questions. Thanks!

    Thanks a lot! I spent about two years getting it all cleaned up and running great. I really hate to have to part with it.

    I put a low bid on it just to get the ball rolling for you... beautiful rig no doubt. Unfortunately I know I'll never be able to afford your reserve.

    Thanks for getting things started Kenny. I lowered my asking price a bit. The reserve is set at $4800. I have over $6500 invested in this thing and I hate to sell it, but I really need the money for school.

    Over the next few weeks I'll also be posting some extra parts I had left over from the restoration (dash bezel and gauges, door panels, a full set of seats, console, seat belts, a shop manual, and what ever else I find in the attic).

    Just wanted to post to let you all know that this truck is still for sale. I recently moved to Nebraska for college and had to leave it with my parents. I thought I would give the K5 gang one last shot before it heads off to a local swap meet in a few weeks. I really miss driving this truck and want it to go to a good home, so please let me know if you are interested.

    Super low miles on the engine and transmission, 7,000 miles on the tires, restored interior, new Sony 10 disc cd player, cold AC, new brakes, all new weatherstripping and top seals. This would make a great daily driver! I'm asking $5000 but considering any fair offers.

    Thanks!

    Forgot to mention that I lowered my asking price to $4500 and it has a full tank of gas. :wink1:
