Just judging from the pics, that C80 is a peach. Even with shipping would be a great start for a well-optioned truck. It no doubt will need lots of maintenance to get roadworthy again, but you would be hard pressed to find a better starting point. I sure hope it goes to a good indoor home.

Pretty cool truck.

Thanks for posting it.

Strange that it is only a 5000 though. At first glance, I was sure it was a 6500.

Mostly likely means that it is a 401 V-6, instead of a 478.

Love the 5 X 3 Trans it has. My 6500 was just a 5 and 2-Speed Rear.

The Differential Lock means both Rears are locked in and turning.

Here is a 53 GMC 2Ton that I spotted, it looks like it is in Iowa.

Most 63-66 C80's will have the narrow fenders, unless it has the 9K or 11k front axle. Can't tell from the photos if the green '65 C 80 has the wide or narrow fenders, but here is the comparison shot between the lighter and heavier front ends.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

Good picture to see the comparison between the two.

I always wondered why GM made the narrow starting in '63, but I recently saw a factory advertisement on it saying that drivers prefer the better clearance.

I always drove the wides out of co-incidence and clearances were never a problem.

Never even had a thought that it could be one of the reasons why, lol.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

I found the info on the narrow fenders and it is actually in a promotional film. The particular info on it starts at about time 3:08.

Other than a few dents, sheet metal looks great.

They sure did take a bunch of pictures:

Not CL, but an online auction in Kansas.
Looks to be a clean low mileage 1969 C-50 with a BBC 366.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

Interesting truck, although the year is way off.

Should be a '70 to '72.

Would love to have it, but ouch on the price, lol.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

I doubted the year, thank you for confirming my suspicions. I went on a 9500 search after reading your recent thread about the one you drove with the 637. Do you have any pictures of the air cleaner arrangement on these? I'm sure it varies by engine but I just noticed that it doesn't have canisters hung outside the hood.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

The 9500, Gas and Diesels, have the Air Cleaner under the hood. I believe it can be seen on the '72 9500 with the 8V-71 that I went to look at a couple of years ago. There should still be pictures of it here on the forums. I took the pictures and Bill (63 & 64 Bowties) posted them for me. I'll try to find them.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

I found the pictures, but the ones I took don't show the Air Cleaner as good as the original listing does. Check out the pictures here: (click onto "More Media" for all the pictures. You will also see a short video of the truck here as well).

https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?f...98&acctid=2455

By the way, this truck is very similar to the truck that you posted today.

Re: The Ulitmate Craigslist find thread

Interesting truck.

I agree with the write-up, the Hood looks like the worst part which can be easily changed.

The GVW of 33,000 probably means 11 Fronts and 22 Rears.

Nice heavy truck.

Another Hood, a little body work and paint would make a big difference.
