Re: Wanna sell it?

Yep, that's how it works. This truck is gone and no one asked if it was for sale. My good friend knew I needed to sell one of my K/20s (was trying to sell the K2500 I still have). One day at his house he hands me a nice chunk of change and says, "I'll have the rest in a couple weeks after I sell these two". I knew what he was fixing up to sell. I took it because I knew it was in good hands, I'd see it, he'd let me drive it, and I'd get first rights if and when he sells it. I never would have sold it otherwise. His wife still thought it was mine for a long long time. She might still, but it's been down the road in a body shop since 2010. It's all painted and in pieces covered up. One of those nobody's in any hurry kind of deals

I took this a year or two later, a couple months before it went in the body shop. I was working on something at his shop and I took it home, had it a couple weeks

Re: Wanna sell it?

Please don't rub it in . I mean . It will be prettier when he gets it together for sure. The bottom side paint is smooth as a baby butt and chock full of N.O.S.

First thing he did was get rid of the wagon wheels. The picture in the snow has a different set of wheels/tires. He had 17 x 9 wheels made from GM 16" centers for it (once it's done).

When I got it I went through entire undercarriage... steering, suspension, bearings, brakes, down to all new wheel studs. When it came to tires I had all my favorite K/20 wheels, wide powder coated steelies, turbines, and slots. Looking to save money I went with 4WPW's buy 3 get one free on Pro-Comps that didn't come in 16.5, so I bought the cheapest wheels available that were still era correct. That truck made the 3rd K20/K2500 to my collection, so multiple sets of wheels & tires was practical. The truck had it's few dings, dull imperfect trim, and patina so I went with the "nice truck from the '70s still rollin' it" vibe. Steelies would have been great if 16s were available, but I think the wagon wheels really did it justice. And I like taking something most everyone says they dislike and show them how good it can look.
