and the motor only has 1,300 miles on it and less on the transmission


I think you mean a C20 because the "K" series was the designation for suburban and blazers in 1985. Regardless, it's market value depends largely on the options (air condition, cruise, captains seats, etc.) mileage, it's overall condition (interior, previous body work, etc.) compared to others on the market like it and whether or not it has rust,etc.. It's a nice looking truck overall and it looks like you've put a lot of money into it from what I can see in the photo and your description. In the right market (Clemson, SC, Tennessee and other "Orange College Color Areas"). If it's CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN and showroom condition, it's worth upwards of $7-10k to the right buyer. You can deduct for imperfections/issues from there... If you are going to ask for top dollar though, you'd better have photos of your receipts and GREAT photos of that new drive train. Best of luck!

C is 2wd k is 4wd...pleas learn for facts befor posting
