1972 Cheyenne

Ok.. I've got my 01 Silverado on craigslist for 12K and I got an offer of a trade on a 72 Cheyenne. I haven't gone to look at it yet but according to the owner it's the bees knees.. EVERYTHING has been done. It does have a title.

powdercoated frame
belltech suspension (coils all the way around)
Factory A/C, PS, PB etc..
300 HP Crate 350
Turbo 350 tranny
excellent body etc.
Black on black

he's looking for an even swap. I'm going to go check it out this weekend but wanted to see what the board though of the value of the truck

Re: 1972 Cheyenne

If thats the case and thats the truck in the picture, and you know what your looking at then I'd say yes. The owner of the truck has more in his truck than you are looking for from your 01. Even though that is not the correct year bed on that truck. JOHN

That's the only thing that's kinda working against it (provided it's as nice as he described.

I had a truck with a late model bed and prefer the fleetside. He has assured me that the frame has not been touched at all and that all the parts used were excellent quality. A/C works, heat works. Has a late model truck bench in it also.

We'll see on saturday morning when I go check it out

Re: 1972 Cheyenne

You can change the bed to fleet in the future, the frame is the same from step to fleet. If the truck is that nice then the expense of even going all aftermarket for a complete fleet box is worth it to me.

Re: 1972 Cheyenne

Went and looked.. not a change this is a $12k truck. Saw it leaking oil and tranny fluid which is a pet peeve of mine. Rust on the drip rail and above the windsheild. Motor has about 30K miles on it. nicks, scratches and dings. Interior was nice.. engine bay was nice but wasn't worth an even swap IMO.. Looked around an $8k and $8500 truck to me

Ya, I guess if I were to do an even swap I would want to feel like I didn't have to put a dime in the new(old) truck.. I want to drive away and really be happy. Not saying I wouldn't change anything but I don't want to feel like I have to
