    They're out there, but you'll typically only find them on no-option trucks that were used on ranches or in construction. We're talkin' rubber floor mats, no a/c, non-tinted-glass, vinyl seat strippers. Most of them that you find for sale have lived a very hard life. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Uh, don't you have a pickup? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif 465's in pickups are much more common than in Suburbans. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Yes, they're out there.

    Matter of fact, I think a 465-equipped Sub is even more rare than a Blazer/Jimmy-equipped 465 vehicle! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    There is a 79 next door to me that has been sitting for a long time. It belongs to a logging outfit.
    3/4 ton 4x4 465/208 in it.
    No frills just a base model and a lovely shade of green.

    Hmm I wonder why I didn't think of that. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    I am looking into getting it and swapping my 81 Silverado Burb body onto it.
    The 465 will do nicely with a 454 in front of it.

    Most of the manual trans Subs I've found were 3/4 ton Custom Deluxe's although I test drove a 90 1500 series Silverado 4x4 Sub in Seattle 2 months ago. Couldn't go the $6000 that the owner wanted for it. If it would have been a 3/4 ton I would taken it home.

    To agree with what everyone else said....Yes. They were also available in Subs of the 67-72 generation. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My Jimmy was probably special ordered in 81. Power windows, door locks, tilt, A/C, delay wipers, power tailgate glass, basically a full load of options...and a SM 465. Every other 465 equipped K5 I've seen is a stripped model.
