That *is* a gorgeous truck. We need more pictures!

Interesting about the history ... i.e., that '77 was the first year for the 1-ton 4x4. 1st year for the Rounded Line or first year ever for a 1-ton 4x4? Does that included the duallie option, too? Was there a factory duallie prior to '77? Or just 1-ton SRW 2WD? And when did they first offer the factory crew cab? It was that era truck when I first heard the term "Cowboy Cadillac" ...

Amazing that it looks like that in the Salt Belt ... You must not drive it in the winter ... How many miles are on it ... 3??

Stunningly beautiful truck. Personally, I prefer the round headlight trucks to the later square headlights smile

Hi John,
To clarify the 1977 model year introduced the K30 or one ton 4x4 available in
Single rear wheels Standard, or optional Dual rear wheels RPO Code RO5 Dual RR Wheel
And RPO E63 PUBX Fleet

One ton C30 Cab/Chassis trucks started in 58 I think.

In the 73 Model year change to the "Round Line" The C30 trucks, PU box and dual rear wheels in two wheel drive
Was Offered, "camper special " package.
Also the 3+3 or Crew Cab was available, with 8' Bed

This truck has 475,xxx miles on it.
I completely rebuilt it starting in 1998 and finished it in 2000 at a cost of Three Times
To what the original purchase price was.
