For Sale: 1979 Chevrolet C20 in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1979 Chevrolet C20 Custom Deluxe is one of the coolest trucks you're going to see ever. The exterior has been given solid investment so that you get a classic style in a show-worthy presentation. But beneath the skin is a 425+ horsepower fuel-injected powerhouse. It's the kind of solid all-around build that's great to drive, and it will turn plenty of heads everywhere you arrive.

It's rare to find a pickup like this. After all, these extra-duty C20 long beds were used to the fullest as hardy workers. So they already had to find an exceptional example even before the big restoration investment. It starts with a red and white that's the kind of tasteful contrast that gives this the all-American appeal of a Coca-Cola bottle. And the two colors are united by a show-ready shine. So while the full restoration was completed only within the last five years, the freshness of the paint will make you think it was done five days ago. Bright chrome bumpers, full-length trim, color-matched wheels, and a full-size spare mounted in the bed make for a great detailed classic. And there are great additions. There are classic pieces like bed rails, and subtle practical upgrades like modern Michelin tires and the LEDs mounted in the grille. You do still have useful features like a tow ball, trailing mirrors, and full liner paint in the bed, but really, this one is too pretty to put back to work.

The interior continues the theme of classic style and the right upgrades united by a fresh feel of quality. A good example of this is the seat. You still have the classic bench, but now it has comfy cloth inserts. And the smooth black style goes with the door panels, sun visors, and dash. There are more comfort upgrades, like the movable cup holder center console, tinted windows, and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/aux input. But what we bet you'll love the most is the sliding rear window that still lets the breezes through the cab in an old-school way. And the tilt steering column, wraparound gauge panel, and upgraded tach all give this pickup the feeling of a muscle car...and that feeling continues with what's under the hood.

The engine bay has clean black inner walls, and that makes for a great showcase for the big investment in big power. This is a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 from the masters at BluePrint, and it was installed only about 2k miles ago. This has BluePrint aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, and long-tube headers. Plus, the Holley electronic fuel injection system has a controller in the cab so that you can dial in the performance and dependability. The full package is dyno rated from BluePrint at 431 horsepower and 465 ft-lb of torque. You'll also spot the right supporting components, like the MSD ignition package, Optima red top battery, and Champion aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit made for big power applications, and this one is even said to have been recently rebuilt. And you also have a thicker front sway bar, power steering, power brakes, and front discs, for a good all-around driver.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and the dyno sheet. This is the sharp, thoughtful, and powerful C20 that you always knew was out there. But there's only one like this up for grabs, so don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
