    No question, the K5. 10 years from now, the pickup will still be a pickup. It will never have the value that a K5 will have.

    Well I guess I'm the oddball here, I've always liked shortbeds. That 86 sounds like a solid daily driver after some work, that OD would be nice to have. Full convertable K5's are great too, and the 400/ 4-speed would run. I'd grab whatever's in better shape.

    You know if I can remember correctly, I'm not sure that in a K5 there was a 465 ever put behind a 400sbc. I though it was all autos, you might want to check that out, something might no be original.

    That one ^^^^

    IMO doesn't matter pickup or Blazer.....

    It has the best trans, either the tough 205, or the Doubler-ready-203. Plus flat-top knuckles (if stock).
