1968 Chevrolet C/K Pickup 2500 for sale
NOTE TO BIDDERS: We've relisted this nice truck after the winning bidder wasn't able to complete their purchase obligation. Please folks. don't let little Jimmy or your darling daughter Suzy-Q have access to your Ebay account unless you plan to pay for what they purchase. OK. enough rant! Here's the vehicle's description again as it was presented last week:
I'm often asked where we find these unique rigs. One of my best workers cruises retirement home parking lots. our Elks club. the V. F. W hall and back alleys of the few working-class neighborhoods still left here in Seattle. He can spot a seatbelt slammed in a car door a mile away… He always notices when a vehicle's driving down the road with a turn signal left on just a little too long and he positively twitches with glee passing by a car or truck with metal bumpers. Over the years I've owned many vintage Chevy Pickups so you can imagine just how pleased I was when this classic Custom C20 rolled into the warehouse a few weeks ago.
If you're in the market for a great driving. well-kept. vintage daily driver please give this truck your kind attention. You're also welcome to contact me with questions or to discuss a sale before the end of the Ebay listing. My name is Mark Thompson and I can be reached at 206/914-1173
Take a good look at my photos. It's easy to see the attentiveness and care taken by the past owner of this Chevy really paid off! With a casual glance you might think this is just another ol' truck. But. like I did. look a little closer and you'll realize what a find this thing really is! The first hint is when you check for rust in the usual spots. For those not familiar with the Pacific Northwest. specifically western Washington. we get our share of misty rain. but hardly ever any snow. At the first sign of a falling flake everyone panics and stays home. Truth is. our winter roads are rarely salted. so you'll see very few vehicles here with any serious rust issues! Climb over. under and around this rig - I know you'll come up smiling! The only corrosion issues we've come across appear to have been dealt with; both rockers below the doors were replaced by the previous owner.
When you open the hood. you're in for nice surprise. When the truck arrived at my warehouse last month we did a complete tune up. I believe this may be the original 327 CID V8. As my photos show. it's been upgraded with an Edelbrock Performer EPS aluminum hi-rise intake and 450CFM Edelbrock four barrel carburetor. The second you fire it up. you'll know it was built to last! I love the deep burble this strong motor makes. Added horsepower from the easy-breathing stainless steel headers. too! Factory installed power steering makes for easy turns! Please notice the well-crafted aluminum overflow tank mounted next to the radiator. It's likely custom made and adds nicely to the hot rod vibe. The Turbo Hydra-matic transmission is great and you've gotta love the look of the floor-mounted shifter. The glove box data plate shows factory heavy duty rear springs. Here's how the VIN code breaks down:
C - Conventional 4x2
E - 327 CID engine
2 – 7500 GVW
4 – Pickup Model
8 – 1968 Model Year
J – Janesville Assembly Plant
164935 – Sequential serial number
D - Grotto Blue paint
Up in the cab you'll find full instrumentation. My mechanic added the column-mounted tach (something every vehicle should have) and the radio remote will arrive stashed in the glove compartment for the great Pioneer dash stereo. Though the odometer reads just over 63K. I have no idea if these are accurate miles (remember. it's only a five-digit counter). Look at my pictures of the bench seat. Both the cover and underlayment were redone a few years ago and it's in nearly perfect shape. Last week we added new stock contoured carpet that covers the entire floor area and beneath the seat. New chrome sill plates at that time. too. The Hurst-style floor shift functions just as a factory unit would: All the way forward for park. back one for neutral. one more for Drive 1 and lastly Drive low. There is no tranny lock-out switch.
Outside I know you'll also be impressed by the classic medium “Grotto Blue” solid paint. It's had one quality respray to that original color and is just about as clear and bright as the day this Custom C20 rolled off the Janesville Assembly line. Over the past six years the owner (who sold to us only because of an upcoming out-of-state move) added the nice bumper mounted quartz fog lamps. the hot rod style door mirrors and headlight covers. He also replaced the heater fan and added an under-dash toggle switch for it next to the fog light controls. Though I've always appreciated the look of stock steel wheels with “dog dish” covers. these modern eight-spoke chromies are a great upgrade without detracting from the vintage look. They're wrapped with Cooper “Discoverer” LT 235/85R16 Radials having at least 60-70 percent remaining tread all around.
Please feel free to email or contact me with any questions. My name is MARK Thompsonand my direct number is 206/914-1173. You're welcome and encouraged to come by my Auburn. WA warehouse to inspect and drive the rig. You might also make an offer before the end of the auction. as many of my vehicles sell to smart “early birds” that call and work out a deal prior to the auction's end. I always reserve the right to sell during this period.
A Few Additional Terms and Conditions:
A nonrefundable $500 deposit is due within 48 hours of the auction's conclusion. The balance is due by cash or certified funds within seven business days unless prior arrangements have been made with me. Please remember you are bidding to buy and I fully expect the winning bidder to fulfill their Ebay contract! You're not bidding to hold or then come inspect and test-drive the truck later as you're more than welcome to do this before the auction ends.
If you decide to have the pickup shipped home. there are scores of transport companies to choose from. Don't be intimidted just because you've not done it before (it's a relatively simple process we've done hundreds of times and I'll be there with you through the entire process). I'd first suggest you get a transport bid from Dependable Auto Shippers (DAS). They're EBay's preferred transporter and will give you a fair quote. though they tend to be on the high side. Call them directly at (888) 817-6203. Give the rep. my affiliate number (2362642) and they can pull up all our information for station-to-station or even door-to-door quotes.
For Oregon and California buyers. I have a great transporter that regularly delivers for us up and down the I-5 Corridor. As another alternative. you might also get bids from the U-Ship. com website. You'll be able to choose from multiple broker offers. The zip code for pick-up would be 98002 (Auburn. Washington). Please remember the shipping of the vehicle and company chosen are ultimately the responsibility of the BUYER. I will help in any way I can with the process.
You're welcome to keep the rig free of charge at my location for up to two weeks after the auction ends assuming full payment has been received. After that period storage is $20 per day.
