This Grandpa Fresh 1981 K20 Scottsdale Chevy Truck Is Almost Too Cool To Mess With…Almost

I have to be honest, it takes a special car to make me question whether or not it is a good idea to start messing with it. Some you certainly wouldn’t want to cut up, but pulling all the factory stuff out of them is pretty much a given unless they are something ultra rare and important to me. But when you see a car or truck that tells a story about its previous owner, and that has clearly been well cared for all its life, I do pause for a moment wondering if messing with it is a good idea or not. This K20 is that kind of truck. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll get over it and enjoy the hell out of lifting it 6 inches and stuffing 40’s under it. And if trimming of fenders is required, or Bushwacker cutout out flares are on the menu, I’m in. But I’ll feel bad about it. What do you want to do with this thing?

Here is all the info from the seller:

I am selling my very nice 1981 Chevy Scottsdale K10. Purchased from original owner this year, has all paperwork from factory as well as a record of all work performed since the truck was new. Runs and drives perfectly, cruises on the freeway at 75 with ease. Everything works and there are no issues with the truck, just looking to get another. Body is near perfect with no dings or scratches anywhere the bed is near perfect as well, no rust anywhere and paint is in excellent condition. A lot of work has been done, most listed below, and on top of that all gaskets and vacuum lines that needed replacing were replaced.

    Maybe bag the rear end so I could pull my camper. Other than that I would not touch and I would drive it every day


    Vortec 454 with a 4L80E, keep the transfer case. Change the wheels to PY0’s with some modern all terrain rubber. Add a trailer brake controller and a check the receiver hitch out.

    In other words… Needs a big block and matching beef of a transmission. Wheel wise, I just love GM PY0’s for wheels on 8 lug trucks.
