Is $1800 for this K-20 a good price?

    I found a 78 K-20 for sale and I haven't driven to see it yet because its 3 hours away, but what do you think of the price? It has a 350, Th400, 14 bolt with 4.11 gears. He swapped a Dana 60 in the front with 4.56 gears so a regear would be in order. He says there is no rust. The paint is very fadded and the hood is a different color. He says all it needs is new exhaust and a brake job. He said he doesn't know whats wrong with them. Maybe just bleed, maybe mastercylinder or booster. What do you think? I want to make this my tow rig. I was thinking about removing the 60 and replacing it with a 44 and selling the 60. I shouldn't need the 60 just to use a tow rig right?

    60 would be great on a tow rig, more brakes are always good.

    I'd say that price is pretty decent.

    Go for it. I'll swap you a D44 with the gears of your choice for that Dana 60. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Where is this thing at? If you don't want it let me know. Yeah, would be worth it and the 60 would be great for a tow rig /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif Brakes is an easy fix and exhaust is a few hundred bucks. Who cares about the paint as long as there is a rattle can nearby.
