WL: Crusty 1985 K20.


So Chris bought this crusty 1985 K20, as seen here:

...but he really wanted a V20 (or better yet, a V30, but who doesn't???)

So I made him the trade of a less crusty, but non running 1987 V20 that I had. That way I still had a hydraulic four speed setup if I cut the truck up.

Here is my crusty V20 I traded.

Here is my new (to me) 1985 K20 on the hoist.


Chris wanted to keep the 4.10 geared full floater that had been installed under the '85 K20 at some time. So we spent this Sunday swapping the full floater from the K20 under the V20 (and vice versa).

When it was all said and done, I am not sure who got the better deal, but I think we were both happy.

He left with this:

I've wanted a 1973-1975 K5 for years. Always been one of my dream rigs. The other day a buddy of mine posted a link to a 1975 K5 on Craigslist. The ad sucked. No pictures, no phone number, not much of a description. Just said 1975 K5 Blazer, no engine, $600. So I emailed the guy a few times. No reply. Was starting to lose interest. Than a couple weeks ago, I clicked on the ad again, just to get the email address, and try one more time. Upon doing so, I found the ad had been updated...

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across this 1990 K5 for sale on here: It was almost exactly what I was trying to build, the price seemed right, and I was bored, so I bought it. Last Wednesday, two buddies of mine and I flew out to L.A. to drive it back home to Nebraska. The following posts are from a hometown message board that my buddy Joe made. I am just going to copy/paste them. He took 1209 pictures on the trip (he is kind of a...
I am going to transfer this over to here. It is probably of no real interest to anyone, but I have it on a local board, and I am always searching for it over there, for stuff on here. I figured I would just transfer it over. Martin
