    Here is my recent purchase. Been looking for this truck for many years. Now it will soon be going in for complete restoration.

    Still has the original plow and engine. Its identical to the truck i rode in with my dad while plowing.

    Funny you mention a 1977 scottsdale. I had one of those. It was the first brand new truck my dad bought.. I then bought it for $500.00 and had it until 1997..

    I kick my self every time is see one... I shouldnt have ever sold it.

    Very nice Thumbs Up

    The only regret I have in my life was about 8 years ago when I had a chance to buy from a friend a 1972 Chevy K20 for $3500. Truck was solid with a 4" lift, 33" tires and a built 427 big block. I think of that truck often.

    nice find. looks real clean for a 67-72 .

    Nice old Chevy. If I had it I would put a Fisher Speed Cast on it.

    Actually the pic above of the blue truck is very close to what my dads was.. But he always said he would like to have had it in orange also
