Well new to me anyway. Picked this up at a consignment sale. Gona get it home and get it running and go from there. It has a 454 so im kind of worried that's its gona be gallons per mile and not miles per gallon. But it was right deal right time so I cant complain.

Man, that was a good deal. Those flatbeds alone go for more than that in my area.

I would love one like that in 4x4.

 

1984 to 86?

Can't complain about that at all! I'd love something like that to haul around my garden tractors on.

All trucks are high around here.  Supply is much lower than demand.

I LOVE IT :love:

What year is that?

I have a 1981 Chevy C-30 flat bed, mine has the 292 inline 6 cylinder and gets around 10mpg (ouch)

I just doubled the price of my pickup and I just put 6 new tires on it :thumbs:

I'd trust my pickup anywhere, it still runs like new :worshippy1:

I'd love to see more pictures!
Thanks for posting

   You cant beat an old chevy like that!!!!!!!!!  I have a 78 I ton here and would not replace it for the world.  You can haul the world with it at around 45mph.  If the body is ok than $800 is a great price.

Nice truck.  I love the old chevy trucks.  That 454 might not be as bad as you think.

 

When I got out of high school I bought a 1984 Chevy 4x4 step side.  I bought it to restore, but I quickly found out adults didn't have as much free time as I thought.

 

It looked darn close to this one, but a lot of rust
