1977 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 K-20 4X4 SCOTTSDALE BONANZA CAMPER SPECIAL
You might have just stopped on this listing to check out a cool and affordable vintage 4x4. But take some time to dig deeper into this 1977 Chevrolet K-20 Bonanza Camper Special. As the long name suggests, there are a ton of interesting features that makes this V8 longbed pickup rare and truly distinctive.First off, there are not many people who know about the Bonanza. It was a factory value package offered by Chevy on the Scottsdale line. Today it offers some nice distinction on these classic pickups. And speaking of distinction, the factory-correct two-tone tan and white paint really does look like a fantastic representation of its era. It only gets better with the complete full-length trim that serves as the dividing line for the two colors. This is more than just a terrific factory-style presentation. The black pusher bar up front, side steps, and bed rails are part of nicely coordinated custom package that offers some extra attitude. Another unique part of this pickup is the Camper Special option. Besides the cool teepee badging, it made the truck more beefy (we'll get deeper into that in a moment.) But just from the exterior, you can see distinctive side mirrors, and you can tell the long bed was perfect for a drop-in camper for those cross country trips. Today it means you've got for room for a tool box with space leftover to haul the Home Depot load in one trip.When you open the door, you see a nice mix of original equipment with a few essential upgrades. It starts with the newer cloth bucket seats that have more modern bolstering for long haul comfort. Plus, the cup holder center console is a great anytime feature. This joins the full carpeting and factory wood paneling on the doors & dash to create a comfortable pickup atmosphere. You even have an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with modern Bluetooth connection. There are provisions for air conditioning, but we always love opening the vent windows and sliding rear glass to let the breeze flow through the cabin. It's easy to imagine eating away the miles from the driver's seat with the original steering wheel and full set of gauges laid out in front of you. This easy cruising attitude is further heightened thanks to the extended range of the dual fuel tanks.Under the hood is a 400 cubic-inch V8. The mightiest of small blocks looks exceptionally honest in the engine bay, and so we are especially glad this is likely the original numbers-matching powerplant. This K-20 was built to go into the wilderness and be a self-sustaining camper. That's why you have a beefed-up 4x4 suspension that features a heavy duty front stabilizer bar, higher rated leaf springs, and a 14-bolt rear end. You also have the stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission backing up this go-anywhere package. But this is more than just an off-road machine. The auto trans combined with power steering, front disc brakes, and aforementioned dual tanks to make it a fine choice for the long haul over the pavement. Complete with owner's manual and other documentation, this is an exceptionally interesting vintage Chevy pickup. The fact that this 4x4 is also so affordable means it's also not going to stay with us long. Call now!!
