Description for Chevrolet C/K Pickup 1500 1979

One owner southern Colorado truck with 129K orig miles. A true survivor truck parked since 2001 in outstanding condition! Truck is the perfect restoration candidate with very minimal rust and not molested in any way. This truck is the Bonanza edition and a shortbed, very desireable combination. A 4" lift was installed and custom tube bumpers and old school chrome roll bar. The original 350 cu in. V-8 was rebuilt 10K miles ago with performance mods to include 10.5 to 1 pistons, custom headwork, RV ca, headers with duals to the rear and 4 barrel carb. Motor is VERY strong and burns clean with a nice deep rumble. Power is run thru a Turbo350 auto transmission and a 5 position manual transfer case. This is a powerful set up for this lightweight shortbed truck, it is VERY responsive to say the least!!Body is in great condition overall with one repaint years ago in the metallic brown original color. There are a few spots with black primer where touch up work was performed. There is only very minor rust behind pass. rear fender 2"x6" spo, two tiny spots at cab corners and two spots a couple inches square at rear inside bed. Other than that the body is clean. Floor pans and rocker panels are excellent as shown. Frame rails and underside are in great condition even showing most of the original black paint. There was a fracture behind the steering box which is a common problem with these trucks so we had it properly repaired first and then had factory molded reinforcement plating welded onto the frame as recommended. Very stout solution that is now overkill to last a lifetime. Otherwise entire chassis is clean and original.Glass and chrome are complete. All the lights, turns etc work as they should. The Bonanza emblems are missing on fenders. Interior is complete but has been dried out by the sun over the years. Dash and door panels could stand replacing but are functional and a few other interior items will need a little TLC. LMC sells every single piece of this truck if one wants to make it like brand new in and out.
As you can see by the photos this great looking old shorty is in exceptional condition and a perfect candidate for an easy restoration. One owner for almost 40 years and it spent the last 17 in storage. A very rare find with a reasonable reserve price.
