For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet K-20 in Mesa, Arizona


Vehicle Description

The 1971 Chevrolet K20 4x4 is a truck built for extra duty, and so when you want your vintage truck to also be a tough one, it's great to find one that has been used to the fullest. But as you dig deeper into this unique machine, you'll also see some style added back to its well-earned appearance.

This truck looks like it would have a cool story. In fact, it was purchased by the school district in Boulder, Colorado, and we even have the original Protect-o-Plate warranty tag that identifies them as the first owner. It spent decades as a more forceful educator than iron-fist principal. That extra tough front bumper looks like it could push a school bus. And within it is an extra-duty transmission-driven winch. The long bed has a thick mat, and under it, this looks like it spent a lifetime hauling much more than books. Plus, the rear still has district ID on the bumper, and below that is an extra-tough alligator hitch. But while this one wears its workhorse past with pride, there's also something else here. The well-earned patina on the bold yellow has been cleared over. This way it preserves the history, and at the same time, it also helps showcase the decent shape of the sheetmetal. And those large 20-inch Moto Metal wheels add a nice hint of attitude in the tall 4x4 stance.

Inside is more of that cool ready-to-work-attitude. But just like the exterior, this also has been upgraded correctly, too. So while items like the steering wheel and gearstick let you feel the history of those who came before you, the reupholstered bench seat gives you a comfy cloth feeling. Plus, you get features you just don't see in other trucks, like the mechanical operations for the winch.

Under the hood is Chevy's hardy 350 cubic-inch V8. While this keeps the workhorse personality of the rest of the truck, you will also spot some good investments, like the new alternator and an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. It makes for a strong-running pickup, and the newer dual exhaust gives it a nice V8 tune. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this K20. And the full 4x4 drivetrain, lifted stance, and Accelera M/T tires mean this is a go-anywhere classic. Plus, features like the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front are great for the street or trail.

Complete with owner's manual and warranty card, this is a patina truck with a cool story and the right features to go with its extra-duty K20 construction. So at a price like this, you know it will be gone soon. Call today!!!
