    i have the opition to buy a 83 chevy 3/4 ton short bed for 3 grand
    the body is good as well as the interior it has a 8 foot western cable control blade. i originally wanted to get a everyday truck and put a plow on it (something diesel) but here comes this truck. also i want to know if you can get a dump bed insert for a short bed truck like this (landscapnig). so do you guys think its worth the money

    ps it runs well and i know the guy who is selling it and it has only plowed so far this season.

    I have seen a few k20 Short beds from that era. Usually from southwest(Texas)... Not sure on inserts, but you can get full bed dump kits that will work.. Price seems high unless it is "Cherry" ...Chuck
