For sale: Survivor 1973 Chevy C20 Camper Special Custom Deluxe, one owner from 1973-2019. This truck was purchased new by a former co-worker of mine. After a 30-year career in Spokane, WA, Bill returned home to Montana where I purchased it. Bill was looking for a truck to haul a camper, and after looking a long while he and his wife walked into Good Chevrolet on Aug 22, 1973 and bought this C20. The 1974 models were coming out, and the dealer was ready to move the 73's off the lot - a very good buy at $4,466.74 out the door. Bill and his wife then camped, fished, and hunted all over the Pacific Northwest with this rig. He is a meticulous guy and retained all original documents including sales contract, manuals, warranty papers, owner card, SPID tag, GVW certs, log book, inspection and registration. Original keys and blanks, original dealer plate frame, and original jack and tools. Original Power Beam headlights and Safety-float glass. "Day two" mods include RV cam, headers, Judson Magneto coil, slotted mag wheels and extra running lights. Original grille was not modified for the fog lamps, brackets bolt behind it. 86k well-cared for miles. Rolling 70s time capsule in original Lime/White with Avocado interior. PLEASE see the Photobucket album link with pics including the underside in the description below, and the YouTube walk around and driving videos.

Exterior: Original factory Lime paint with a few touch ups to the white panel. Paint is a bit faded, I didn't try buffing it, I like the survivor patina look. Paint on top of box rails peeled in spots from camper tape. Straight truck with no major dings or dents. Inside of box is mint as would be expected on a truck that had a camper. Exterior chrome is in very good condition with no pitting. Extremely dry truck, I'd say 98 percent rust free. A couple of small spots at bottoms of fenders behind front wheels, they are hard to see but look closely at Photobucket pics linked below with 100 close up detail pics. Original owner had minor rust over rear wheels repaired back in the 90s. Underside looks good with only minor surface rust, and of course we don't see frame rot here out west. I don't believe the truck has ever seen salt. Presents well and draws a crowd wherever you stop. Just an honest survivor to use as is or take to the next level.

Interior: Original in decent driver condition. Cracks in dash pad and original seat upholstery under the covers. Original floor mat in good condition. Gauges work except oil pressure. Lights(except the add-on lights), heater, wipers, stock horn all working. Even the big truck air horn works if you fill the tank with air. Interior is clean with no rodents or smells. Door weatherstrips coming loose, need replaced or re-glued. Radio non-op. Original Safety-float glass in good condition but original windshield has a crack in passenger lower corner. Passenger side window doesn't roll down well, needs lubrication.

Mechanical: Starts, runs, and drives out well, feels like a low mile truck. Original 350-4V pulls strong with RV cam and headers. No noticeable smoke or noises. Healthy dual exhaust note, see driving videos. 4.10 gears make for a fun street driver, but it's winding pretty high at modern interstate speeds. No noticeable leaks or stains on garage floor overnight. Both fuel tanks work, fuel gauge works on main tank, auxiliary tank isn't wired to gauge. Main tank rubber filler neck leaks, they are reproduced at about $20. Tires have good tread but are older. I will include the original steel wheels if desired, I don't have the hubcaps. Most of the add-on lights not currently working. The underhood outlet is 12v and works. Keep in mind that it is an older rig and will need further sorting. If you live in a state with very strict vehicle inspections, they will probably find something for you to fix, so expect that.
