WTB SWB '71 or '72 4x4 in EXCELLENT Condition

I'm really Jonesing for a SUPER nice SWB 4x4. I like the idea of finding a survivor but would entertain a well-sorted restored truck.

If anyone knows of a good candidate, please let me know.

Thx!

Not mine... For the "firm" asking price I would expect the A/C to be charged...

Wow, that doesn’t seem bad to me. Trucks like that are just not that common on this side of the states. Charging the AC wouldn’t be a deal breaker here. I believe the included restored buckets seats help offset the AC fix. Lol

Thats my dream truck too. Been keeping an eye out for a long time and they just don't come up too often. I have to agree about the one above, its alot of money, but it also is a nice piece.

Add me to the list. Lots of looking but no joy. You'd think the seller in CA would put up a pic of the interior on a $25K (firm) truck.

An intriguing truck because it has AC which is rare for a K-10, but it is not running, rusty, a 4 speed and currently bid up close to $8K despite being all of those things.

Re: WTB SWB '71 or '72 4x4 in EXCELLENT Condition

Congratulations, I look forward to seeing you post some pics after you make it yours. You did the right thing if you want a nice truck and not a fixer upper. I would like a custom/10 triple black, but I think I could live with just about any color combo if it was the right truck. This one is on my wallpaper on the desk top most of the time.

That's a tough call, but I agree, 516 orange is one of my favorites.

I’m not picky, I like all the orange shades on these year trucks. Bling! Bling! They sure stand out in the crowd!

I hope the deal works out. That's a beauty! I had a 516 orange 71 c10 and that color really grew on me.

I bought my '68 C/10 Stepside just because I liked the [516] Color. Still got it.

Not really for sale or in restored condition but hey I like showing her off. Just got my shop pretty much completed and the 2 post lift is here ready for the install. I have been waiting for a few years to start the restoration back to stock condition, she gets pulled into the shop next week for a long road of work.

I know the 2nd owner personally. He was working in Texas in the oilfields and a salesman would come to the office driving the truck. He offered to buy it in 1975 after seeing it for a few years come and go and the guy sold it to him. When i got it it had a dealer optioned 8track and cb which I sold to cover the cost of the truck so my wife couldn't complain......it had a dealer optioned soft top on the cab also.....i.love old truck

The more I look at the orange truck, the more I like it. Dantip, maybe you can tell me, Are pre 73 models the same as the early square bodies? I mean automatics being full time 4wd. I have had a dozen or more 73-80 chevies and they were all NP203 transfer case equipped. I know of at least 2 trucks in our area that are transferred over to the later chassis. I just wonder if there is a reason, other than the fact that it is a cheaper build.

No np203's until the square bodies. 70-72 would have the np205's and lockouts. Trevor
