    i have a 86 k5 its a custom deluxe and has no power no A/C and is pretty stripped down. it has been in my family forever and its my turn to fix it up. i have spent about 5 grand fixing it up it has a 350 with about 90k on it and its got the orginal 4 speed on the floor. real nice paint and grill gaurd and lights and step bars. my question is i want power and a/c in it and headliner, basically i want to turn it into a silverado. should i spend the money to fix it up or just go buy a silverado. im getting ready to go off to collage and i need help.

    Well it sounds like if you already spent $5000 on it you should keep it.. You sound like it might have some sentimental value as well.. So I guess you could spend a little more to upgrade to the things you want to do or keep it like it is and maybe buy something newer truck..

    I think if you wanted to keep it and add the things you want the A/C would cost the most.. To get power windows and locks would just require some new doors from another truck.... A head liner is cheap to put in..

    It's not worth the trouble, buy a silverado and sell me your current one for $100. :D

    i want the non a/c parts- the inner and outer boxes and cables and harness and ducting and all bolts and screws

    how much ?

    would take two boxes to mail these, dont need the heater core so that can be removed before mail, ill buy a new one

    i have 81 a/c system boxes and harness and controls and heater core and all that but not compressor or underhood lines

    all still on truck

    maybe we can deal ?

    can mail real cheap post office parcel post rate and be fine,
