Car description

Up for auction here is a really heavy-duty, extremely rare 1986 Chevy diesel 4x4, K 30 1 ton pickup truck. In 1986 they made very few of these trucks in this combination.A very small numberof these Chevy trucks were diesel 1 ton dually 4-wheel drives. I have seen a lot of Chevy pickups from the 1980's, and I have never seen a 1 ton 4x4 dually diesel like this one, let alone one that has a body this straight, and with a Gear Vendor overdrive installed in it. These gear vendors cost thousands when new. If you are not familiar with these overdrive units, here is a link that helps to explain how they work, and their advantages.https://www.gearvendors.com/4x4gm3s.html
This truck does need some work before it can be driven on a daily basis. Most of these items are straight-forward, uncomplicated repairs, but I am very busy working right now and just don't have the time to fix them. Below is a list of the good points concerning this truck and the items that need to be repaired:The Good:1. Really great running 6.2 diesel that burns clean, even when it first starts and is cold. (The photos in this auction were all taken while the truck was running.) I was told it has just under 108,000 original miles on the odometer, but I have no paperwork to prove this.2.Four wheel drive was tested and works great.3. Super heavy duty Dana 60 front end with manual hubs and Dana 70 rear end.4. Other than the rusty spots, the body is very straight with no dents that I can see.5. Equipped with the highly sought after Gear Vendor overdrive.6. Has a newer (installed in 1996) heavy duty turbo 400 transmission.7. Is very highly optioned, especially for a 1 ton dually pickup truck. Comes equipped with PW, PB, PS, tilt, air, deluxe interior, sliding rear window, full gauges, Dana 60 front, Dana 70 rear, NP 205, GV overdrive, turbo 400 trans, CB, AM/FMcassette, etc., etc.. (Take a look at the photo of the factory options list I have included in this auction!)8. New starter9. Drives down the road smoothly and solidly as it should.10. Floor carpeting, door panels, etc. in very nice condition. The deluxe interior is very nice for a truck this age, and the dash and seat are very solid, although there are some minor cracks in the dash and a few small tears in the seat. Also, the grab strap on the driver's side door needs to be reattached. (See detail photos for close-ups of these areas.)The Bad:1. There is a problem of some kind with the wiring in the truck. The headlights and dash lights work sporadically. No power to Gear Vendor overdrive, radio, and A/C. The alternator works but doesn't charge the batteries. There must be a bad connection somewhere. I imagine when you find and repair the loose wire (or whatever might be the problem), most or all of these problems will be fixed.2. There are a number of areas where there is surface rust that someone tried to hide with white spray paint, and two small major rusty areas that have rusted through at the rear bottom area of the cab. (See detail photos for close-ups of these areas.)3. Starting problems. When you first start it, you have to keep the throttle up to a very fast idle or it will die and then won't start until you open the valve on the top of the fuel filter housing to release the air in the line. After this, you need to crank on the starter, let it rest, then let a little more air out, then crank again and repeat this until it starts. After it runs for about 15 seconds or so, it will run great the rest of the day. (There is air getting into the fuel line somewhere between the filler and the tank, I think. It probably would be an easy fix with some new fuel line, but I just don't have the time to fix it.)4. The front windshield has two cracks in it and needs to be replaced.6. Needs new harmonic balancer pulley. (It makes a rattling sound.)7. Needs new front disk brake parts and rotor on driver's front side.8. Needs new exhaust.9. Some tires need to be replaced.10. Oil drips from engine. There isaleaking seal on driver's side of rear axle.11. Needs new lug nuts with washers for a dually. The previous owner put the wrong kind of lug nuts on it.Well, that's about it. I did my best to write an honest description, but in case I missed something, take a close look at the photos and please feel free to send me an e-mail with any questions you have, and I'll do my best to answer them. With a little work this would be a really nice, very dependable and rare truck. I will need a $500 deposit received within 24 hours of the close of the auction and the balance received and the truck pickup up within three weeks unless other arrangements are made prior purchase. Thanks for viewing this listing!
