72 K20 Survivor

I purchased this 72 K20 from a farmer in Colorado. It was used solely on a farm and driven occasionally to the lake. Its a numbers matching survivor that was repainted and had the bed redone before the farmer passed. I purchased it from his son and spent the last 6 months bringing it back to mostly original. It has 88K original miles (verified by the seller) and no rust.

This is what it looked like when I picked it up. Not bad from the outside.

Re: 72 K20 Survivor

I have more pics to post. I finished it about 2 weeks ago and kept the original drivetrain. I'm a fan of originality. As most of you would probably agree, these projects are a labor of love. I look forward to tweaking on this thing every chance I get.
