1981 Chevrolet Scottsdale C-20 5.7L 350 c.i.d. V8 from North America
Seriously doubt I will ever sell it. This is my dream truck!
Secondary ignition pickup died rendering no spark to coil.
Steering, water-pump, alternator belts.
New spark plug wires.
Passenger Aux. fuel tank electronics died.
Bought it for 800 bucks from my girlfriends father. Its been a loyal farm truck its whole life, and only has 100k miles on it. Got the original 350 V8 which runs like a clock (when the secondary pickup on the distributor wants to work)
It rides and handles nicely for a pickup of its size, seeing as how it's a 3/4 ton. It was more than covered in dirt when I got it, and is still awaiting an interior clean. If you swat the seat with your hand, plumes of dust fly at you. I can tell that it has been a very reliable truck as no problems have been encountered since new, other than the secondary pickup, but that's a given, and happened just today.
All original everything, even down to the AM stereo (which still works) and dash speaker (which is in 1 piece and sounds decent).
Can't wait to get 'er all fixed up and looking pretty! I fell in love with this truck not 20 minutes after I bought it.. oh the power!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
