1971 Chevy K20 Custom Deluxe – 350 V8, 4 Speed, 4×4, PS/PB, A/C, Custom Seats, Wood Wheel, Bedliner, Great Diver!
1971 Chevy K20 Custom Deluxe – 1967 was the initial year that Chevrolet Motor Division and GM Truck and Bus Division agreed to split platform production. The former would make all light trucks, with GMCs essentially becoming rebadged Chevrolets, while GMC would build all larger trucks, supplying Chevy with rebadged units. As such, while the all-new 1967 GMC pickups shared the same chassis and sheet metal as Chevrolet, it was available with a GMC unique engine, the 305 cid V-6. This was in addition to GMC now also using Chevrolet’s sixes and V-8s. GMC’s trim lines also paralleled Chevy. From 1967 through 1971, they ranged from the basic Deluxe up to the Custom and the Super Custom at the top end. Changing for 1972, they then went from Custom, Super Custom, Sierra, to a new premium Sierra Grande which matched up with the Cheyenne Super. While GMC also used the C (two wheel drive) and K (four wheel drive) model designators, they differed from Chevrolet in that they used four digit numbers for the weight range. This was partially due to coordinating with their medium and heavy-duty trucks that were already using four digit model codes. As such, half-tons were 1500s, three-quarter tons were 2500s, and one-tons were 3500.
We search the US daily for clean, mechanically sound, original Chevy/GMC trucks and locating them is no easy task. We also have customers from all over the US that bring us nice examples of GM vehicles to sell. This K20 is a Texas truck and looks to have been here most of it’s life. The previous owner had the truck repainted, installed a bedliner and upgraded the seats. While all 3 upgrades are a little older, the truck still shows very well. In preparation for a new home, we recently replaced the fender emblems, mirrors, entire grille, and the famous blue bowtie. The two-tone Ochre & White paint paired with good chrome trim and a good set of Hankook 265/75/R16 tires really give this K20 a lot of curb appeal. The interior, paint, chrome, tires and engine bay are all in great shape but still what we’d consider driver quality. Even better than its great looks is the drive-ability of this classic Chevrolet. As the owner of the dealership, I have personally put several miles on this truck and it drives great around town and on the highway. This Chevy is a factory A/C truck but needs a belt and a fresh service. Features and options include; 350 V8, Edelbrock Carb, 4 Speed, 4WD, A/C, Custom Seats, Center Console Storage, Wood Wheel, Spray-in Bedliner, Entry Steps, Chrome Mirrors & Bumpers, Power Steering & Brakes, Factory AM Radio, Tinted Glass, Sliding Rear Window, Vent Windows, Rubber Floor Mats, Cloth Dash Cover, Spare Tire, 16” Black Alloy Wheels, and thick Hankook Dynapro P265/75/R16 Tires! The industry experts at NADA already value this truck at $29,085 and Hagerty Guides comes in a little stronger at $29,600. Each passing day these trucks become harder to find and are constantly increasing in value. Don’t let this one slip away from you!
