    Looks like a better deal than the '77 I picked up a few weeks back (not including the tires/rims) for a set of off-brand 37" tires and $400 cash. It smoked so bad, and had just enough rust I decided to part it out instead of fix it.

    But yours looks fairly rust free and pretty straight for a $600 K5. Looks like from what you can see of the motor it looks pretty clean, with an aluminum intake even. Good deal. :D

    Looks like a great deal! Keep the graffiti (it gives the truck that urban street cred).

    great score ! I wish I could find a deal like that out in my area . I would strip my burb and put all the parts on a Blazer . I'm sure I could find a home for the burb body :wink1: . I miss my old 74 :( . I should have never sold it .

    I might miss it :D but I have a problem with creating stuff and shortly thereafter punting it and building or creating something else :screwy: :dunno: . I guess I'm never content :doah: . I may be selling it (burb) to get back into racing again ONLY this time it will be 125cc shifter carts instead of superbikes . I can always build another 4x4 :D .
