    1980 chevy 1/2 ton. but it has the 205 gear to gear transfer case, 400 engine and transmission. plow on it is useless. old meyer i think? lever operated and slow as the day is long. This truck runs and drives like a 2012 truck. drove it 95 miles home doing 75mph on the interstate. Has cruise controll!!!

    good...
    2 owner truck with 73360 original miles.
    1st owner was a body shop, so cab corners and rockers have been replaced
    body is solid as you will find for this year
    interior is mint aside from u.v. cracking from sun damage
    good tires

    bad
    UGLY paint
    ugly rims
    junk plow
    needs new front leafs

    soo, repainting it silver this summer, putting a new plow on it, getting some rims for it, and going plowing! 80s chevy trucks are my ultimate truck. my goal is to get a 4 door dually, and put a standard bed on it and a cummins diesel, fully restored and daily drive it.


    WITHOUT FURTHER ADUE!! this afternoon ill get a better pic when the sun is at a good spot.

    Nice find, the front end seems to sit way lower than a stock 4x4. You have a solid drive train & body. If your gonna replace the front leafs id put a mild suspension kit on it like a 2.5", have a nicer ride and it won't affect things like brake hoses, steering or front drive shaft length. I've owned four of those old trucks (still have one), they will take a severe beating.

    I do have a Boss mount that will fit your truck, but it would cost a lot of money to ship, just not worth it.
