This was a one owner truck up until last year and had been of the road since 1989 garaged. This is a RARE Longhorn edition which is one of only 1,479 C30 longhorns built for the 1971 year model. This is a true time capsule that will only continue to go up in value.

This truck has less than150 miles on everything that has just been listed. The engine was properly broke in and the oil changed. I would not hesitate to drive this truck across the country tomorrow for everything which was listed has all been done by a professional technician of thirty years using high quality parts and components paying very high attention to detail. If this truck where to have a complete paint job it could then be considered a complete overhaul but Why not drive around in an original paint rust free truck with cool patinawith character and a story to tell. The original paint on this truck shows well and gives off that classic look and turns heads everywhere. So I will say it has an overhaul of all the matters to last another 46 years.

I know I am probably missing something so ask all questions before bidding and bid with confidence. The truck drives and handles as is should. It drives straight and tracks straight when you let go of the wheel at 75 mile per hour.It does not pull and brakes very well. It also runsright 180 degreesas it should with a completely new cooling system.This truck is sold as is where is with no warranty given or implied in any way shape or form. Again please contact me if you are serious about buying for more information. I will not accept any bids from someone with less than 25 positive feedbacks and no negatives with out contacting me first. I also have the original build sheet. The truck also has the original factory installed rear window slider which is in excellent condition and is on the built sheet. The mileage shown on the picture is the original mileage beforethe rebuild. I have all the receipts for all the components, parts, and services purchased for this restore which total over $17,000
