1979 Chevy K10 Sport package 4x4 shortbed $2500 or trade for a squarebody Suburban 4x4 for a winter beater. Located in Sultan, WA but I can deliver within a day drive for $1/ loaded mile. These are the pics I had handy but I'll get current pics in the daylight.

Overall, this is a major restoration project but a good starting point.

350 V8, SM465, NP205, 10 bolts (3.07 installed plus extra set of 3.73 axles), 4" lift, slotted mag wheels. Older 31 x 10.5 x 15 tires with very good tread. Currently not running but I plan to see if I can resurrect the motor soon.

Cab rust is primarily in the rockers from what I can see. Bed rust is much worse due to being parked many years with trash in the bed. Hood is not kinked but does have rust across the front.

Cool vintage roll bar and set of 5 slotted mag wheels included in asking price but I can keep them and lower the price.

So cool... I want a 70's K10 one day. This one ticks all the boxes (shortbed, manual, 350).

Good luck with the sale man!

Speed limits are optional when you want to be first on a deal.

The hood stripes were part of an exterior decor package. A truck with the Chevy Sport option would have had a special paint treatment on the sides and stripes on the sides too.

It's still a super cool truck though. Checks all the boxes for me too. Except for the whole distance thing, lol.
