Simply put they just don’t make trucks like this anymore and finding good examples are getting harder to find. This truck wasn’t some company work truck that was beat and abused everyday, instead this truck was special ordered with all the right options. Powered by a 454cid big block V8, Turbo hydromatic 400 transmission, full floating Dana 60 front axle with 4.10 gears and a full floating Corporate 14 bolt in the rear with 4.10 gears.

This truck is built for a purpose and has the capabilities to tow your house and your boat up a mountain while comfortably seating your family of 6. What makes this truck more special, is it was never used very much in its 33 years of life it was driven on average 3,600 miles a year and still has the original paint. Squarebody trucks are in demand and have proven to be a safe option to put your money, a factory crew cab 4×4 dually with original paint is a hard one to duplicate.
