1988 RCSB Chevy K1500
Picked this truck up off of a buddy on an impulse. I was going to build it and make a beater out of it but decided it would be in my best interest to just save my money and not start another vehicle being as i already have two that im constantly working on anyhow.
1988 4x4 1/2 ton
single cab short bed
5 speed manual tranny (nv3500 i think)
241 manual t-case
10 bolt rear
power windows and door locks
-The motor runs really good. The previous owner was a friend of mine that bought it from one of our co-workers. Supposedly has about 18,000 miles on a rebuild. Ive driven it quite abit around the farm and back roads and it runs and shifts well.
-It does have some rust cancer on the bottom cab rockers and in the bed.
-A/C: we charged it with freon and it blew cold. But soon it went back to being warm. So were thinking theres a leak somewhere.
-Starter: It starts fine when its could, it drags a little like its hesitatant to start but then turns over. We think there is a slight draw somewhere. He says the starter was new. could be the draw, could be starter, could just need a fresh battery. Nothing serious
-lights all work.
-Interior is in awesome shape as it was almost totally redone.
-needs radio installed in the aftermarket LMC headliner
-shifter needs the knob fixed
-startes without key, apparently the ignition was replaced at one point.
-4x4 is out....very likely it just needs the actuator repalced since that was a common issue in these trucks
The tags are out of date but should pass an inspection no problem.
I have a clean and clear TX title ready to go.
Located in Edna.
