    Looking into buying a 1990 k5 for $1000. 196k miles on it, completely stock and running. Comes with an 89 K5 for parts. The 89 has a running engine but that's about it. What do you think? I was considering parting out the 89 if anyone was interested.

    Look very closley at the body, especially floors. I bought my 89 last November for $850 92,000 miles and run great. But the body was in much worse condition than I originally thought. the floors were trashed, and got even worse after I wheeled at the badlands. There's nothing like some off-camber crawling and feeling the floors move up and down:eek1: :eek1: !!

    Like it was mentioned earlier, check the body good for rot. If the rust is not to bad then you should be ok.
