    Looking for a 4x4 8ft bed pickup. 67-72 vintage.

    Would like to find a 3/4 ton but a 1/2 ton will work.
    Hoping to find a turn key truck, not a project.
    Needs to be a reliable drive.
    Trades are an option also.
    Blazers, 67panel, 72 burb, 72 flat bed...take your pick.
    Thanks.

    Now you want one.... :doah:
    My brother in law just gave it away to his coworker.
    4x4 1/2 ton 71 long bed, complete running and new paint, manual tranny.
    :mad:

    Thanks, appreciate the effort. :bow:

    I've got a lead on one in PA, maybe that'll work out.

    Howdy Kurt,
    Still looking? You hold out a little longer and these gas prices will seperate the guys that just drive their trucks from the guys who truly love to drive their trucks if you know what I mean. I'm not refering to any member of CK5 ;) .

    I got my 89 burb home. That 69 in Mass is still available.

    Did the guy in Mass. ever get back to you?

    I'd like to find more of a 'turn key' than that one but it is a nice truck, so ya never know...

    Hows the burb?
    What's the purpose of that one? Driver?

    Kurt, He sure did sent me about 20 pictures and a very detailed description of what needs to be fixed, just too much for $3K.
    I'm going to use the burb as a DD. I need to finish the 70 and 71 both are turning into long projects, not making as much progress as I'd like. It doesn't help that I keep driving the trucks and using them as trucks. The 71 has paid for itself hauling crap for family and friends!

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking...
    I wonder if he'd go for less. :thinking:

    Mind sending me pics of the "worst" of the repairs needed?
    Thanks.
