Original owner passed recently. The red 79 K20 has been a Montana ranch truck its whole life. Bought new in 79 in Missoula and stayed in Fairfield MT. It's a 350, 4 speed, 4x4, 3/4 ton, single cab, long bed. It's a very clean, straight, and completely all original truck. Very minimal surface rust in the usual places for squarebodies. No accidents or body work ever done and just starting to get a patina look.
Brand new cab mounts, shocks all around, starter, carburetor, two fuel filters, battery from 06/23, new exhaust and muffler from y-pipe back, new heat/sound insulation in cab, allweather floormat, new seat, full sized spare tire, lots of life in all terrain tires, radio works well, AC/heat work well, all glass in great shape, even the wing windows seal. It does have a dent in the hood and a wallop in the tailgate (both shown in pictures) and the speedometer went out. All other gauges working. Doesn't use or leak fluids. Just a well taken care of almost 50 year old truck. The paint would come right back around with a much needed wash and some buffing/polishing.

The tan one was his newest project. It's a 1976 with a 3500 frame, a dana 60 rear axle with 4.56 gears, a rebuilt big block 454 mated to a turbo 400 trans. He was thinking about axle swapping and putting the 454 into the red 79. It runs and drives but the trans isn't the greatest and the tires are completely shot and dry rotting. If you're local you could drive it home but I wouldn't leave the Belgrade/Bozeman area driving it. The body and interior are bad but the hood is perfect and could go on the 79. Comes with loads of spare trim, chrome pieces, lights both front and rear, wheel hubs, etc in the cab.

He signed the titles before passing so they are clean and notarized ready to go. Come and check it out in person, it's worth it. Work it on a ranch as is or give it a much needed bath, buff, and polish and daily drive it. Hell it would be a perfect candidate for a frame up restoration too. Not really sure so thinking $12,500 for the red 79 and $3,000 for the tan project truck. Would be willing to do a deal on both trucks. Honestly just make us a reasonable offer, cash talks and we want to see it go to a good home. Email or text/call four oh six-for oh for-four ate oh one
