1968 Chevrolet C/K Pickup 2500 Description:

I am the second owner of this 1968 Chevy truck with 8' bed RARE Custom Camper that I have owned for 50 years this year. It has all the original factory Rolled & Pleated Naugahyde `Interior. When I had the truck totally restored 3 to 4 years ago, the only part of the interior that needed to be fixed was the seat. I had it totally redone with new springs & everything at a cost of $875.00. It still has it's original factory AM/FM radio, 8 track player, electric brakes for a pull trailer, triple tint windshield, 4 speed on the floor, a 556 gear ratio tow truck rear end, rubber around the 4 fenders, Air Condition which is in the back of the truck right now but is easily hitched up.The Custom Camper is a rare truck. When it was restored they put in all new emergency brake cables, new brakes all around, new brake & gas lines. The gas tank is behind the seat so is still like new. Last year I put a total new front end including tie rod ends, new piston for the power brakes & so on. It has power steering & power brakes. About 2 years ago I put in a 383 Stroker, Balanced & Blue Printed with 405 horse power & new over sized radiator, new 12" racing clutch, pressure plate & throw out bearing. The engine has only about 1000 miles on it. The truck has 4 new 10 ply radial 16.5" tires I put on last year The bed of the truck has been Rhino Lined. There is no rust anywhere, & the frame is as nice as when new, no rust. I put on all new running lights (Which were on from the factory) & lenses, new tail light & front lenses, new front bumper, rear bumper made from diamond plate. Two new mufflers last year with an aluminumized exhaust that will last another 50 years. It has a very strong tow hitch welded to the frame put on at the factory when it was new. One should not be put off with the 177,000 miles because everything is new. This truck does not ride poorly because the 68 chevy came through with coil springs like a car instead of leaf springs like in most trucks. Being a Custom camper, this truck has 2 large leaf springs which do not engage until a heavy weight is placed on it. I also have a 1 ton truck and my 3000 lb camper squats more when I put it on the one ton than when I put it on the 3/4 ton Chevy, Everything in the truck is new & it will last another 50 years. I put in all of that money so I could drive the truck in my retirement but I have terminal cancer & that is the reason I am selling my baby. This truck easily pulls a 3000 Lb. slide in camper up a steep grade in 4th gear without even kicking in the 750 cfm 4 bbl. For that reason it isn't that bad on gas because you are always running on the 2 bbl. I have a nice 12' slide in camper That is at my home in New Hampshire near the Canadian border. Ask me about it if you are interested in it for another $4000.00. If you email me I might not see it because I get so many. So please call me if interested in the truck, camper or both. I am located in central Ma. Phone 508-637-1570
