i'm selling my workhorse 1992 2wd C1500 w/t.

truck has 180K on it. the first 171,000 were with a 4.3 and the last 10k were with a 305.

engine has 50K on it but it did sit a while in the last truck, so it has the typical small block valve guide seal poof in the morning. the tranny is orignal and has given me zero trouble. it has 15x8 wagon wheels with 31x10.50 goodyears. auto, no air

positives: new intake gaskets

10K on new fuel pump and tank

new ball joints/tie rods on drivers side

comes with(not installed) new ball joints for other side

under 5k on new front rotors and pads

sony CD player

vent visors

nice fiberglass cap

nice Reese hitch

new alternator over winter

94+ mirrors

3/4 ton rear springs with polyurethane bushings and new U bolts

negatives: rust above all 4 wheels, cab corners, rockers

tires have maybe 5,000 miles left in them

tailgate cables long gone

attn: truck WILL NOT pass a visual emissions test. there is no EGR and no catalytic converter. it does however run excellent and has been driven daily since i swapped in the 305 up till a month ago. it has flowtech afterburner headers with no leak copper gaskets, a custom Y pipe, and 2.5" single exhaust that exits out before the rear wheel.

$1000 CASH located 20 minutes from cleveland ohio. this is still a great work truck but i rarely need it anymore and have just been using it to move trailers around since i got the astro van.

What kind of MPG does it get?

What an awesome deal.

I have a very similar one myself and love it (2wd w/ 305).

Pete; Mine gets between 15-16 in town. Never used a whole tank on the road so I can't say. Oh, and I have the th400, this truck is likely to have overdrive.

Crap I would so buy this.

i never calculated the mileage, the larger than stock tires keep the rpm down on the highway nicely though. it has a 700r4 overdrive auto and 3.08 gears so it does pretty well.

to add i have replaced both window tracks(common problem with these trucks) so no need to worry about the glass just falling down the door one day.

there are no door keys, i lost them so i put in a new ignition cylinder.

local sale looks probable but if one of you guys needs it feel free to let me know, because the guy that wants it wants to give me half now and half god knows when. i know him and he works for me but i'd rather get the $ up front.

$950 if you bring your own battery since i had to swipe it yesterday for my other truck
