1978 Chevrolet K20 3/4 Ton Pickup
In the past decade the C/K series of Chevrolet pickup trucks has really shot up in popularity. There are entire clubs and shows dedicated to purely this series of truck. Following the "Action Line" series Chevrolet introduced the "Rounded Line" series for the 3rd generation in 1973. This generation would later be referred to as "Square Bodies" by the public and media. These are great classic pickup trucks and this 1978 is a .....
K20 3/4 ton version. Since it is a "K"20 it is also the 4 wheel drive model. This truck has been fully restored and looks great. The build was started in 2018 and completed in 2020. It has had 850 miles put on it since being finished and prior to that it was a working ranch truck in Nevada. It is all rust free and painted in a very slick gloss Black paint. One feature that makes the truck very unique is the custom powder coated Hillsboro Industries flatbed in back. Not only is it very useful to have but also allows you to pull a 5th wheel behind it. The bed has folding side gates and stainless steel storage boxes along the sides. The truck has a great looking custom chrome grill and the chrome front bumper is also in excellent condition. The tinted glass has all been replaced and the weather stripping as well. Due to its height, side steps are in place on both sides to give easier access to the interior. The lights are all working properly and on the flatbed multiple additional tail/brake lights are in place. The truck rides on custom 20 inch Black Helo wheels with locking hubs up front. The are wrapped with brand new Nitto A/T Terra Grappler G2 tires.
Under the hood is a crate 350 V8 motor that has an estimated 5,000 miles on it. The truck runs extremely well and is fitted with chrome Chevrolet valve covers, an Edelbrock air cleaner, Edelbrock Performer intake, 4 barrel carburetor and a serpentine belt system. Backing it up is a smooth shifting Turbo 400 automatic that was rebuilt by Phoenix Transmissions in Texas. The truck has new drive shafts and the rear differential was rebuilt. At 75 mph on the highway it tachs around 3000 rpm. The entire suspension has been redone with Rough Country N3 shocks/stabilizers and all of the body bushings were replaced during the build. It was also fully rewired with an American Autowire harness and the electrical is all working properly. The brakes have been converted to 4 wheel discs and are power. It has power steering as well making it a very nice truck to cruise around in. It sounds great through the dual exhaust that dumps right behind the rear end. The truck does have new dual gas tanks but only 1 is currently connected.
The interior is completely new from top to bottom. It has very cool TMI bucket seats with a custom center console. All of them feature nice Black leather with Red stitching. You can tell it is a fresh build because the upholstery is all in excellent condition. The door panels, carpet, headliner, and even dash are all new. The dash features a lot of the stock components but the gauges are all now Dakota Digital Analog gauges with a carbon fiber face. It also has an upgraded Alpine AM/FM/USB/Bluetooth stereo and Vintage Air adjustable AC/Heat vents and controls. A new painted to match tilt steering column has been added and is topped off with a very cool Flaming River steering wheel with Chevy bowtie horn button.
This is a great looking truck that has a lot of really neat features. Not only are these trucks popular but it has a lot of pluses like the custom flat bed and the fact it is four wheel drive. Whether you are just looking for a vintage square body or need a solid work truck this thing is ready to handle anything you throw at it.
It could be yours for $47,500.00!
