I think that you would like it at first but start wishing you had your newer truck back later down the road. Although those older Chevy trucks are good looking trucks they are still a dime a dozen. I would rather keep my newer Chevy and save money and buy an older Chevy.


look for the 1987 model. The last year of that Chevy style. They are a bit smoother.


The older the better- go back, back, back- find a good truck that somebody has put some time and money into, but now they need cash, bad- the old trucks with the carbs are the REAL DEAL-


There is nothing wrong with the older trucks, just buy a good one that has not been abused. The old trucks are easy to work on.
