    1977 Chevrolet Silverado C20 "Camper Special"
    7.4L (454) V8, Automatic Transmission, 2 wheel drive
    Regular Cab, 8' Bed

    Current Mods
    - Dealer installed auxiliary fuel tank
    - Dealer installed sliding rear bumper (to accommodate slide-in camper)
    - Dealer installed tow hitch
    - Dealer installed towing mirrors
    - Cobra CB Radio
    - AM/FM/Cassette Stereo (Upgraded from AM Radio.. lol)

    (The pictures really don't do it justice, this truck is in immaculate condition, minus a couple missing trim pieces!)

    I got this truck two years ago from my Grandparents.. They custom ordered the truck new in 1977. The truck has 129,XXX original miles on it, but had the motor replaced (with a GM crate motor) at about 118,000 miles and the transmission replaced at around 121,000 miles. I've probably put 2,000 miles on it (at the most) since I got it.. there's nothing wrong with it, but at almost $5 per gallon and at 8mpg, it's pretty expensive lol!

    I don't plan on changing/modifying this truck at all, just want to keep it stock. I've just got to replace a few missing/broken things and it's in like-new condition!

    Thanks guys!

    Not at all.. Body is in very good shape, just a little paint fade and the metal chrome side trim's adhesive is coming undone. But, that's nothing too major..

    Very nice!! I used to have one just like it in high school, but it was lifted with 38" Swampers on it!
