    I found a guy selling a 67-70 fleetside (not sure of the year I know that it is older than my k5 because it has the older grill) It has rear leaf springs and a wooden bed. Most of the pick-ups I see are coil springs with a metal bed. The guy wants $1000.00. Its not in the worst shape, in fact for its age I would say its in O.K./good condition. What do you think?
