Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1971

Only 270 miles on a total body off the frame restoration with upgrades. It literally looks like every single item in, out and under was restored or replaced. I put 20 miles on it and it drove, rode and functioned great!

Restored about 5 years ago and obviously it wasn't used. Someone had fun ordering parts for this one, it looks like every piece was replaced. It's a beautiful truck that makes a great driver too.
