Gool Ol’ Boy Truck - 7 April, 2017
If your name is Beau, Jim Bob or Darlene, you love Nascar and own more than one gun? Then this 1984 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe K10 pick-up could be just what you’re looking for.
To be fair, half the population of America seems to drive a truck similar to this – the Ford F Series, for example, is their biggest selling car – but they do conjure up images of plaid shirts, Ted Nugent and hunting critters. But for all that we don’t see too many of these American icons here, and when we do they are pretty expensive – but not this one.
This particular K10 model (K standing for 4x4) truck was sold new in NZ and is right hand drive. It has a decent size bed so you can take the whole family Possum shooting or maybe to a hot dog eating competition. You’ll need a stiff shot of Southern Comfort and a lie down after you’ve filled up with gas though as it will be thirsty and it’ll be a long and agonising wait at the pump as it slurps down a seemingly endless amount of 98 octane. Luckily, though, this one also runs on LPG. Sure it’s travelled an impressive 447,000kms but that’s raccoon feed for a truck like this.
You can complain about the cost of petrol and unreasonable gun regulations but you can’t complain about the price of this impressively large ute. The price guide is a mere $12000 - $14000.
The auction is next Thursday at Turners Hamilton. More details here.
