This truck is a regular cab, long box. I bought it so that I could haul a trailer occasionally. It replaced a beat-up 1982 Volvo wagon.
This truck has been less reliable than the Volvo, but that's not saying much. The alternator has proved a problem, but that was mostly thanks to shoddily re-manufactured parts, in both cases.
The cab is roomy, the heat works well, the squashy suspension soaks up bumps well. The vague steering isn't as vague as the Fords that I tried when testing it, and the seat material has worn well.
The truck gets fairly good gas mileage, but costs a pretty penny at the pump, with the 128 litre tank. The tailgate is broken, but that seems to happen to all older Chevrolet trucks.
The foot vents are a nice touch in a spartan truck. The engine is noisy, as if the fan were permanently connected to the pulley. As a utility truck, this is an excellent vehicle.
This combination is not so easy to find, but worth it whenever long cargo is carried. My sons' entire rooms were moved back from college in the back of this truck.
