1975 Camper Special - which of course, is a long bed single cab - rear slider.

3/4 ton with the original 454 and TH400 4.10 Dana rear. Front disc. 8 lug. two year old LT tires on newer 16" rims.

And I can corroborate the 8mpg - I bet it's cheaper to ship than drive to you, but it's an option... I'd get you at LAX.

One repaint. replacement fenders at the front, needs a hood, and I have a grill. Original AC truck, not hooked up. Has headers and new exhaust.

Runs like it should, but it's an unrestored truck with no surprises IMHO.

I'll include original GM brackets for the AC compressor.

27K miles - certainly 127K.

clean title in my name of course - will be no issue to import at Port Huron.

I'd sell it to you for $10K CDN - which leaves you 20K+ to transport & import it then fix it up how you like over the winter...

PM if interested - I'm not really selling it, but it might tick a lot of your boxes.

Cheers,
Anthony
What a generous offer.

Let me think about this over Canadian Thanksgiving.

What a well optioned truck!!!

I love the deluxe two tone!!!

Dang, that is a really nicely optioned truck. I bet that Hawaiian blue was gorgeous when new.

The deals always seem to be on the other side of the continent, eh Ryan ...

LAX to Port Huron is 2417 miles / 8 mpg = 303 gallons X $3.80 = $1,150. Plus a plane ticket and a couple nights hotel. I think Anthony is right, that it may cost about the same to ship and not take up 3-4 days of your time.
Be interesting to see where the bat price lands to compare.

$3.80 a gallon?!!

You'd have to get about 500 miles away from here to hit that I think.

Not quite double here...

gah!

I don't know how anyone lives in that state. Gas was $3.54 on our Chevelle club cruise today. Non-oxy 91 premium for our cars was $4.50

Looks like a no reserve auction and checks all the boxes except "handsome". If you can get it cheap enough, then a paint job may not blow the budget.

Brand new seller; so you would want someone local to lay eyes on it.

And then there is this one, under your budget, and you don't even need to buy a trailer:

Wow, glad that isn't a C30 or I would be very interested.

And he needs a much better description, especially of the engine work. 101k and only the top end and cam done ? No rings, bearings, crank seals ? And is the seat trash under the towel ? No way to know. Pics with the ramps would be nice too. Still a cool truck and a decent price.

I have considered a 3500 as they are cheap, but too thirsty.

I have considered ramp trucks but I want the Cutlass in an enclosed trailer for long overnight trips.

I have spent a lot of time analyzing trucks and anything with DOD AFM is out of the question.

I looked at early 90’s trucks and the TBI were a little low on power, so I ended up looking for 1996 to 2000 with Vortec 5.7 or 7.4, this is likely the best choice….. but then I got thinking why not buy a truck I love?
