Yes sir sure is pretty! It's interesting to see one of those parked next to a new Chevy truck. The new ones are much larger and heavier.

If I were in the market for a pickup I'd sure rather give 8 grand for that than give 8 grand for - say a 2006 pickup that has "all the bells and whistles" 

Bells and whistles is short for:

its going to beep at you if you don't fasten your seatbelt

its going to lock you in when you pull it out of park

the electric fuel pump is going to quit and leave you stranded

the computor is going to fry itself and leave you stranded

a sensor if going to fail and make a red light appear on the dash - the sensor is $325.00 BTW  and two weeks after replacement the light comes back on 

been there/done that  :(

 

I'll calm down now - that is a beautiful pickup!

$8K in my area is a steal for that truck, super low mile, all original. I was looking at a 87 frame off resto guy wants $8 K for, but that 71 is a classic!

Really a rare thing to see one in that shape. Brings back memories from the old days.

1971-- it was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

 

I went on my first date (late bloomer)

Graduated from High School

Viet Nam war ongoing, with negotiators arguing over the shape of the table they sat at!!!!

I enlisted in the Navy...

Had a '62 SWB C-10 with 235 stovebolt and 3 on the tree.  Dropped a "rebuilt" 265 (he swore it was!!!) into it... left it at home when I went to boot camp, etc. and my younger brother blew the engine....

 

Oh well...

 

Today I drive a 1991 K15 Chevy with extended cab.  Body was in perfect shape until persons unknown jacknifed my trailer into the passenger side... (I was on a business trip, and my mother, and 2 SILs borrowed it while I was gone.)  I knew mom didn't do it 'cause she didn't use the trailer... with the other two it was like asking who put the cat in the dryer--Nobody did it!! (Wish I could have used Nobody as a tax write-off)...

 

I digress....

 

Clearly a classic truck..

A 1971 with 42000 original miles is a winner.  I would buy it for his asking price without blinking.

Beautiful truck!  I have my Grandpa/Dad's '72 Cheyenne waiting for me in the shed back home.  It's the Ochre (yellowish) and white version.  I plan to restore it someday but sure wish it was the blue version.

Again, it is a beautiful pickup - I'd like to have it  ~~but~~

its showing 42,000 miles - nowhere does the ad say "actual".   It has also been repainted - '71s didn't shine like that back in '71

Indeed!  My favorite GMC was the '67 with twin headlights...

Of course the older ('58) dual headlight model was nice too:
