1972 Chevrolet C30 Long Horn 4×4 Pickup Truck, Four Wheel Drive, Custom Deluxe 30 one ton pickup. Very heavy duty running gear. Original paint. Runs as good as it looks.
Current mileage is 107800 original miles. I have owned the truck since 1975. Clear title in hand. Truck is factory two tone White over Chevy Orange. Stored indoors. This is the original paint, even in the bed.
Truck has factory power steering and power brakes, factory air conditioning, factory tilt wheel, quad shocks front and rear, extra heavy duty suspension and sway bars, full instrumentation including tachometer (photo), interior, dash and glove box are in great shape.
Engine: 454 Big Block Chevrolet + .030 with Keith Black Silv-O-Lite popup pistons, I believe 10 to 1 compression ratio, runs fine at my altitude (5000 feet) but will need octane booster at lower altitudes, has about 40000 miles on it since being rebuilt 20 years ago at Carson Truck & Auto Repair (www.ctar.us). Quadrajet carb is a later model style with an electric choke mounted on a cast iron, GM high performance high rise intake manifold. Starts easy and runs very strong. Always stored indoors. Every few months I drive it a few miles but other than that I don’t think I’ve put more than 1000 miles on it in the last 20 years. The original engine was a 402 big block. You will enjoy driving this truck.
Transmission: Turbo 400 (TH400) three speed automatic with shift kit and many heavy duty parts. Shifts very firm, has dual apply forward and direct clutches (ask your favorite transmission guy), blocked accumulators and 5 plate clutch packs and a factory deep pan.
Transfer case: NP205 gear drive transfer case with manual locking hubs. This truck was originally a two wheel drive truck. I converted it to four wheel drive in the mid eighties using then current production factory parts. It has about 50k miles on it since then. Current mileage is 107767 original miles.
Front Differential: Dana 44 with heavy duty open carrier, 4:10 ratio. Front disc brakes. Welded on truss bar. Front heavy duty sway bar.
Rear Differential: Factory Corporate 14 bolt with a Detroit Locker. 4:10 ratio. Rear drum brakes, 3 inch. Welded on truss bar. This rear end was installed in the mid 1990’s and was current production at that time. Since this truck carried a camper it has a very heavy duty sway bar on it (photo). These sway bars were used on GM class A P37 motorhomes.
Body is in very good condition. This is a Long Horn edition (google it or go to LongHornTrucks.freeservers.com/index.html ), a very limited production model. Also has the side bed tool box, another fairly rare accessory. Always garaged. The paint is 100% original, including the painted wood bed. There is one small dent on the hood (photo) and some damaged paint on the driver’s door due to resting my arm on it with the window down. The bed is in very good condition, partly because it had a camper on for the first 100k miles. The tires have about 50% tread and don’t leak but are very old and should probably not be considered road worthy. All gauges work. NO TAILGATE. This is a Long Horn edition (google it), a very limited production model. The truck had add-on electric window motors installed when I got it, I removed them back in the mid 1970’s but you can see that the inner door trim was trimmed to accommodate them. Please notice the trim marks and screw holes around the window crank area on both doors. Front seat was reupholstered also. Original seatbelts are kind of dirty looking (photo) and have been removed but are included with hardware and are white in color to match the original front seat. The radio, steering wheel and rear window glass are not original. There are also some areas (edges) on the body where the paint has been rubbed through by washing and waxing, most notably on the hood and around the wheels (photos). On the hood there are two bolts where a hood ornament used to be and 4 bolt holes below the windshield where shock absorbers were mounted for the camper (photo). The truck has three fuel tanks; the OEM tank behind the seat, an aux tank in front of the left rear tire under the bed and a custom tank installed in the bed. The fill spout for the tank in the bed is mounted through the side of the bed while the other aux tank fills inside the left rear wheel well. The manual fuel tank selector valve is on the floor inside the cab on the left of the driver’s seat (photo).
