    I am looking for another K5 project. Year does not matter if the price is right. Looking for something cheap or free for the hauling /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. I would like to find one mostly intact...Does not need to be running but I would like the motor and tranny to be there. The only reason I would like the axles is for the ease of moving it...
    The closer to Oklahoma, the better, I will be towing it back, unless it's running and drivable...

    Re: NEEDED *BASKETCASE*

    Definately not a basket case, but very cheap and a good starting point. It is a 1989 K5, completely stock, engine was rebuilt about 30k ago, and it has 165k on the clock. Was a texas truck for all but the past 4 years, very well maintained and clean. It has been on the cover of the LMC
    catalogue for the past two issues also! I've replaced a few parts (ball-joints, tie rod ends, battery, a few sensors, etc..), and kept the interior very clean. New pro comp tires and alloy wheels.

    Make me an offer

    Re: NEEDED *BASKETCASE*

    DP I know where there is a 71 the axles are intact and but the motor is in pieces in the bed of it. A real project truck but body in pretty decent shape from what I could see the other day. You could get it for about 500 I am willing to bet.....Jason

    Re: NEEDED *BASKETCASE*

    If you are interested, I would be willing to part with my 77 K5. It has a 350, T350, 203, dana 44/12 bolt, both with 3.73. 4" suspension lift and 3" body over 35" tires. Runs and drives, but I wouldn't make any road trips in it. Shoot me a pm if your interested. You can see some pics by clicking on the link in my sig.

    Re: NEEDED *BASKETCASE*

    PM's sent, please respond to those.

    Any new post or PM's, would you please post a price? I am looking to spend little to nothing on one of these (dependent on condition maybe a little more) - I don't want to waste anyone's time.
    btw, thanks for the repsonses!

    I think some of the okie stupidity must come from the water. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Hey, now that I think about, it's probably due to all the chicken crap you AR people dump in the water that flows into OK. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I have got to get out of this state!

    Blown engine, blown tran's, no axles, bring a chain, whatever, somewhat of a decent complete body though, with a top. Thank's in advance! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'd sell you mine for $500 if you want to come to MI to get it. It can be driven, the battery is dead right now because I don't drive it.

    Re: NEEDED *BASKETCASE K5*

    Thanks for the response, but I need everything from the frame UP - not axles. I got some axles I am going to use, well I have 1 axle and working on the other /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
    That is a good deal for someone looking for a turn key K5...
