Exploring Trade Ideas: My 72 K10 Super for your 67-72 2WD Sports Truck

EDITED this ad to provide a shorter version for people who prefer brevity.

>>>>>>

Interested in trading my really nice 72 Cheyenne Super K10 LWB for a 67-72 C10 of any trim level, 2WD. Potentially interested in anything from factory stock to full restomod, but something along the lines of the grey truck pictured below would be ideal. I just want something a little sportier and better handling, while still sticking with the 67-72 truck family. My K10 is redundant with my other vehicle, also a 4x4. What do you have that you might want to trade?

>>>>>>

ORIGINAL, LONG-WINDED VERSION: I love my Super. Not quite ready to let go of it right now. But, I also already have a 4x4 I actually use often - a modified 2015 Tacoma is way more capable AND comfortable than a stock 72 in any off-road situation - and the full leaf-sprung/solid axle K10 isn't exactly a precision-handling machine.

I've been into these old trucks for a long time, but I also kind of want a better-handling, faster-accelerating sports car thing... like maybe a 73 Trans Am SD455, or a 69 Camaro. Of course, I can't afford those sorts of vehicles, and I don't have room or need for more than two vehicles. So I started thinking - what if I could trade the Super 4x4 for a 67-72 2WD Chevy truck that came a little closer to the sports car end of things?

Here's what I have:
72 K10 Super (genuine), LWB, Dark Blue/White two-tone
350/350
Steelies/Dog Dish Caps/33" BFGs with 3000 miles
Factory-style tach

Extremely reliable, I've done a lot of work over the last 5000 miles:
-Carb rebuilt by Lars Grimsrud
-New HEI distributor/plugs/wires/belts
-New radiator/heater core/coolant
-New stainless steel fuel line from tank to carb
-Entire D44 front axle freshly overhauled
-New driveshaft U-joints
-Transfer case/transmission adapter freshly sealed
-New diff/transfer case gear oil
-Lots more where that came from, I'd have to dig out my notes

Paint is 7.5/10, looks great from 15 feet but there are flaws here and there. Nice driver quality, looks good but don't have to worry about it! Rust in lower driver's door, very small amount in lower tailgate, all else is rust-free. Garaged, and not driven in the rain unless i get caught out!

I have never had this truck not start. I would literally drive my K10 to the East Coast right now with no worries. Well, except for gas money.

The blue truck below is mine. The grey truck is somewhere in the neighborhood of what I'd be interested in. Factory 2WD could be of interest, maybe; full resto-mod, also maybe. I really like the overall vibe of the C10 in the photo. What do you have that might be interesting?
