Today we have three 1978 Chevy trucks listed for sale across the web. An immaculate Scottsdale in Idaho, a lifted Cheyenne in South Carolina and a snowed in 78 Chevy Blazer in Wisconsin. Let me tell you, if I lived someplace as cold as Wisconsin my poor dog would never get to leave the house. I would shut myself in and keep him constantly close, purely for warmth. He owes me anyway. Last night he woke up at two in the morning and decided to pace back and forth until four in the morning, clicking his nails on my hardwoods the entire time. Letting him to pee didn’t help, giving him a snack didn’t help, and trying to physically restrain him from pacing until one of us fell asleep didn’t work. I finally got so frustrated I threw his doggy bed at him and he seemed to get the point. Out like a light 5 minutes later. So….we are here to discuss 78 Chevy trucks.
Our first 1978 Chevy truck of day is a Scottsdale that has been kept in terrific condition. You know the story. Owned by an elderly person it sat in the garage, free from the harsh elements, and has appeared 33 years later in nearly original condition. I think all great vehicles should be owned by elderly folks who’s sole goal it is to preserve the automobile until their death. Hyundais and Kias can be owned circus elephants for all I care.
So how original is this truck? Well here are just some of the original 1978 Chevy truck parts still in working order. The A/C (which is insane), the power windows, the cruise control, the engine and almost everything else except are still original factory parts. And all of this could be yours for $5000, which is actually cheaper than it will cost to have my tiny, disintegrating bathroom remodeled.
Second on our list is this 1978 Chevy Cheyenne for sale for $2500 in Kingstree, South Carolina. The condition of this truck is more of what I expect from a 1978 Chevy pickup. Some wear and tear and rusting are clearly visible letting people know that this truck was actually used for something. I’m a firm believer that old lifted trucks should have some rust spots and slight body damage. Makes the vehicle look like a warrior. When it’s all shiny and pristine it makes me sad. Come on man, let it out, play with it a little.
Here for your viewing pleasure is our final vehicle of the day. A lifted 1978 Chevy Blazer. Why is there snow on it? Because it lives in Wisconsin where the sun refuses to shine it’s pleasurable heat. A couple of years ago I was in Iquitos, the largest city along the Amazon river. The humidity was outrageous and the heat was intense. My friends were dying and I was sitting pretty with my cheap Amazonian beer and white linen shirt. The heat is my friend. Why then do I reside in Kansas?
