Seller Submission: 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup LSX

The second generation Chevrolet C/K Pickup (1967-1972) added a number of comfort and convenience items to the basic pickup truck that it replaced.  Time has been good to the C/K series as they were built by the boatload from serious metal — some have been picked up and restored by collectors, but the vast majority are cheap and rough workhorses.  Find this 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup with LSX swap offered for $5,000 in Suwanee, GA via craigslist.  Seller submission from Matt C.

If you are looking for an all-original show truck, you’ve come to the wrong place, because this one is packing a V8 from an ’07 Express van and a ratty exterior.  It could be a good truck if you’ve got a local body shop that does nice work, or if you just need something for hauling manure around town.

Under the hood  is something like a Vortec 5300 LM7 or Vortec 6000 LQ4 that would have put about 295-300 (flywheel) horsepower out of its 5.3 or 6.0 liters (respectively). The seller says it makes 240 at the wheels, which sounds nice and health given drivetrain losses.
