So…..This is my 1979 Chevy Bonanza Truck.This has always been a dependable truck for me.It has never not started in the hottest or coldest of weather.Why would I want to part with this?I have a musical daughter starting High School who is following her brother’s footsteps in the music and theater industry.So I am willing to sell this truck of mine to the highest bitter to set aside a little extra funding for her future.

So let’s get to the details.

This is a 1979 Chevy Bonanza (C-10) style truck ½ ton.

  • The odometer reading in the picture is pretty close.Odometer cable broke at the beginning of summer. I ride my motorcycle or use my other SUV 90% of the time.
  • The inside is real nice.Seat is in great condition.
  • It has the standard 305 motor with a 4 barrel Edelbrock carb on it with dual exhaust.
  • Tires are in good shape. New battery this year as well.
  • Front bumper and pins were replaced this year.
  • Rates vary state to state but it costs me $17 per year to tag it.You can’t beat that.
  • There are no power brakes.The owner before me never had a power booster.Never bothered me, but they are pretty easy to find and install if you want one.

So, let’s get to things it needs.

  • The body paint does look rough.But it’s more cosmetic.No real rust or hole issues.
  • It does use brake fluid.Takes a while to get low, but it does get low if it sits around.
  • I don’t lock the tool box.I have never had a key for it, but those are easy to replace if you wanted to.
  • I have never charged the AC unit.Mainly because I am old school and roll the windows down.The compressor does kick on though, but probably needs charged up.
  • Needs analignment.

Overall I love this truck and hate to see it go, but I have other top priorities and I know there is someone out there that will have great use for this truck. Happy Bidding!!!
