I have decided to sell this deck truck. I have only used it a few times a year since 2000 and that is just not enough to justify insurance and such. It is a 1980 Chev 1 ton with the following assets:
4 speed standard transmission
runs on propane only
3.73 dually rear
8000 lb PTO winch
13 ft deck with 3.5 ft ramp
I kept this truck when I sold my auto wrecking business. I built it in 1995 and have used it ever since. The truck you see on it is a 1982 1ton 4x4 with 454 engine and probably weighs around 6500 - 7000lbs. I would not suggest hauling this much except for short distances. The truck still has lots of power but, could use a set of heads soon. I believe the valve guides are starting to show signs of wear from the propane, which is quite normal. The truck would be ideal for someone needing to haul light equipment or someone into demolition derbies or other types of racing.
I would like to sell it for $2500 or trade for a car trailer of equal value.
