I am selling my 1971 K-20 custom deluxe.  This truck is an excellent driver and I have taken it on very long trips and aside from getting terrible gas mileage and not having AC, the truck drives without issue.

Here is what I have done to the truck recently:

New grille, bumper, and turn signal lenses
New steering linkage and steering gear
New front and rear shocks
New tires (cooper AT3s) at 95%+
Replaced driver's side rocker panel
New dash bezel, seat cover, dash pad, and "rubber" carpet
New windshield
New radiator
New rear wheel bearings and new brakes
New battery

Carburetor was rebuilt by me and the truck runs great.  The carb is not original, but I do have the original quadrajet.  Was going to rebuild it but never got the chance.  At some point this was upgraded to an HEI distributor.

The truck has a couple auxillary fuel tanks that were added by some previous owner.  I removed the filler neck from the passenger side and butt welded a patch in the hole.  There was also a big CB antenna where holes were drilled through the cab and I butt welded a patch here too.

This truck originally had both upper and lower molding, but you can see most of it is missing.  I believe this truck used to haul a camper, hence the missing trim and camper tie down hook provisions.  I do have almost all of the NEW replacement trim I kept aside, with intentions on painting the truck but never did.  This truck did not come with a radio.  There is no hole in the cowl for an antenna and the original radio delete plate is present to block the hole.

The negatives on this truck - it needs a choke, and the washer motor pump needs replaced.  It does have a dent in the top of the tailgate.  There are a few other small dings from over the years but none would be difficult to repair if you wanted to paint this.  The cigar lighter does not work.  it simply needs the wire which runs from the back of the lighter element to the fuse block.  Somebody had put in an aftermarket temp gauge into this truck and I broke the capillary line so that will need repaired or the temp gauge will not work.  Truck does not overheat, however.  I have an original gauge pod to put in the cluster.

The 4 wheel drive works great.  This has an open diff with (I believe) dana 44 front and the heavy Eaton rear.  At some stage, someone upgraded the front hubs to Warn.  The engine was rebuilt by the guy I bought it from some years ago. (I have a receipt somewhere) I have no idea on the mileage of this but I would assume it is whatever the odometer says plus 100,000.

If you would like photos of anything in particular, please message me.  I can also take videos of the truck running if needed.  As I stated, it runs and drives great, and I would drive it anywhere. (OK maybe not with gas at 4.00/gal!)

Truck was built in Fremont, CA and sold new at Joe Romania Chevrolet.  I have the paperwork for this truck.

I am perfectly willing to drive the truck to meet your shipper if that is to be your mode of transportation.  It has current tags and is insured.

2015 Chevy Tahoe gets Police Patrol Vehicle treatment

Thu, 07 Nov 2013

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra debut all-new designs, three new engines

Thu, 13 Dec 2012

General Motors has finally dropped the curtain on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Both trucks have undergone substantial revisions with updated versions of the company's 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. In a shot across the bows of both Ford and Chrysler, GM says it won't use a V6 engine adapted from passenger car applications. Instead, it developed the 4.3-liter engine based on its proven truck-duty architecture.
All three mills will boast direct injection fuel systems as well as a new cylinder head design. Combined with a revised piston, the new engines feature a smaller combustion chamber with a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher depending on the application. Cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing are all part of the recipe, and each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade breaking. So far, no fuel economy or horsepower figures have been released, though GM says the new engines will best their predecessors in both areas.
Outside, the trucks feature a number of enhancements to reduce drag and wind noise, and GM claims both the Silverado and Sierra will offer buyers some of the quietest cabins in the class. Extended cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors to allow easier access to the back passenger area, and Crew Cab buyers can now select between a five-foot, eight-inch bed or a six-foot, six-inch bed. Buyers with a mind toward going off road will also rejoice in the return of the Z71 package, complete with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and additional under-body protection.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra show all their sides in Detroit

Tue, 15 Jan 2013

There could hardly be more riding on the next-generation General Motors full-size pickup trucks, so the automaker has wisely made sure to have a selection of different models on hand at the Detroit Auto Show to show off. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra were both officially introduced last month at a stand-alone reveal, and now they'll be on display for the public to see in various body configurations and trim levels.
The Silverado LTZ Crew Cab and Sierra SLE Extended Cab are aimed at providing more of a high-end pickup experience, while the Silverado LT Z71 Extended Cab and Sierra SLT Z71 Crew Cab should have off-road fans scouting out their favorite trails. The crew cab trucks won't go into production until sometime during the second quarter of this year - with other bodystyles coming later in the year - but we have plenty of live images from Detroit for you to enjoy.
