Yes, that’s a new seat cover But it looks good. I can forgive the embellishment
If I owned it it would have way more miles than that cause I would drive it!! Every sunny day I could afford too.
Here is a 1975 Scottsdale, K 20. 350 V8, TH 350, 83,000 miles. The only thing non stock is manual hubs and transfer case modification. It was bought new in Oregon City, OR. I bought it 2 years ago from the widow of the original owner. I plan on leaving it all stock down to the single exhaust. It has a single 20 gallon fuel tank, 4:10 rear differential and does everything I need it to do. It's slow on the highway, about 65 mph max but excels off road in the desert. It has p/s and p/b but no a/c, but I don't care. Very basic and simple rig, easy to work on and very reliable. I purchased a used $200, steel Gem Top canopy for it for some shade in the summer. I love it!
I like the fit of that topper, I have seen some atrocious ones, but that looks really nice.
'86 K20 Scottsdale. It's not 100% original but dang close. I bought it from the original owner a couple years ago. It had ugly, rusted up chrome wheels on it. As you can see, those have gone away (sidenote, some asshole stole one of my front hubcaps last week). I have no idea how many miles are on it. He had rebuilt the engine and for some reason replaced the heads with center bolt heads. Everything under the hood, other than that, is original. I guess that is a bit of a lie, I have recently put a Edelbrock carb and Performer intake on it because the stock carb had seen it's last days. As far as I can tell, the exhaust is still stock as well. It has TH400 and 4.56 gears. Stock interior. The seat is in great shape but the dash has the typical cracks. Some fading on the door panels.
As soon as I got it, I did all of the normal maintenance stuff that he had been putting off. Shocks, brakes, some front end parts, tune up, etc. I have been slowly chasing small leaks from when the original owner had it. He had let it sit for a couple years after he bought his new truck to replace this as his daily driver.
I have a two year old and the plan is to make this his when he starts driving. Needless to say, I have plenty of time to enjoy it myself before he gets it.
Looks good. Nice and shinny.
What did you use on the paint?
I had an 86 k20 years ago. White with the same wheel/hub caps you have. Had the Sm465 trans.
She’s a Beauty!
I had just washed it and it was kind of a cloudy day so I figured it would be the perfect opportunity for a photo. The paint doesn't always look like that. Lol! I kind of cheated. I guess it worked... Thanks!
The old just washed water trick.
My 77 C30 ispretty close to original. Only mods I see are addition of a fold away gooseneck hitch, newer radio and screwing box speakers to the dash.

LOL @ those speakers Cool rig, man
Eye Candy !.. and the girl ain’t bad either
69 K original mile, unmolested ‘81 C10 shorty
Close to all original, 83,000 miles just has larger tires.
How about this Beauty ‘86 K10 with only 4000 miles (Four Thousand) original miles That’s only 118 miles per year !
Does the speaker say what brand/model it is. Looks like a pioneer ts-55 which I have a set of them that were behind the seat of a 74 GMC and have not really seen any others (in person or online).
