was listed prior i think but still neat.
Up for grabs is my 1997 Chevrolet Silverado K3500 Crew cab Dually, 12 valve, P-pump, 5 speed, SouthBend Clutch, 4x4, 4.10 gears. This is what some consider to be a "HOLY GRAIL" truck. This truck was originally a 454 Gas truck with an automatic trans. It has been converted to a 6 BT 12 Valve Cummins Intercooled Turbo Diesel sourced from a 1997 Dodge 3500 dually with 134k miles. The NV4500 5 speed trans was also pulled from the same truck so it is a complete matching driveline swap. The trans was gone through at a transmission shop in Xenia, OH. The entire truck was gone through and everything replaced or updated so that the truck would be a reliable driver. The clutch was upgraded last year to a Southbend clutch. Also replaced new last year, 2 brand new steer tires, the rears are in excellent condition, 2 new batteries, new starter, new lift pump, and a Derale water separator was added. The fuel system has the spin on type fuel filter mounted on the engine after the lift pump. The truck has an 8 foot wide by 9 foot long flatbed, with two Devers 8 foot long side boxes with a matched key. The boxes can be removed easily if you wish to have access to the entire bed. Also included is a swivel vise mounted at the rear. This would be a great and reliable work truck for someone that might need to tow equipment also. This thing has tons of power and will roll coal if you wanna get into the throttle and build some boost. It has more than enough. Four wheel drive works like it should as well as 4 low. All of the exterior lights have been converted to LED.
The truck does not need anything to be a daily driver, but the speedometer stopped working about 6 months ago, all of the other gauges work fine. The odometer reads the incorrect miles because it was pulled from a 6.5 diesel chevy with over 300k on it. Also needs new door lock cylinder because the door key has been lost, has power locks but cannot be used until the lock is replaced.
The paint on the truck is chipping and peeling here and there like all of the white Chevrolet trucks from these years do. The drivers side rocker does have rust, other than that the truck is really pretty rust free.
It is a 22 year old work truck, but is a heck of a good reliable driver. I drive it all over and it has always served me well, adult owned and not abused.

A truly amazing survivor 77 GMC 4X4. Purchased from the original owner. All the documents since day one are included and in perfect condition. Even the factory license plate bolts are still in their NOS bag still in the glove box. The temporary tag to get the truck home also dated 10/22/77. This truck for used on a 9000 acre ranch in eastern Colorado all of its life. The transmission went out at 67,913 miles and the truck was parked. The truck currently has just over 68,000 miles. I had the transmission professionally rebuilt ($1700 receipt included). Make sure and look at all the honest, full disclosure pics I've included as well as the videos. This is the truck you've been waiting for. Its a 350 w 350TH transmission. The radiator was replaced but the original is included. I removed the factory optioned grill guard but its also included as are the John Deere rear mud flaps. This truck has all its original paint and only shows minor dings and wear, Truck was stored all its life and it shows. Dash pad is perfect. Seat does have a separation on the drivers edge. Truck runs and drives fantastic. Its a real MANS truck if you know what I mean. Its no Cadillac. It rides like a truck. It sounds like a truck. You'll love it!!! This is a dealer sale.
