1970 Chevy C20 3/4 ton Top-of-the-Line "CST" trim and rare "Longhorn" body
I haven't had a "Longhorn" in several
years. For those of you who don't know what a "Longhorn" is, it is a
longbed pickup with a bed & wheel base that is 6" longer than stock.
GM designed these to provide extra support for the slide in camper rage of
the early 70's. Longhorn's were only offered in 2wd's and all had wood
bed floors. Try this link for some more facts:
http://www.longhorntrucks.freeservers.com/ Enough trivia, I am
offering a 1970 3/4 ton "Longhorn". This one is RUSTFREE from
southern Oregon, and only has a little over 90k on it. This truck was
built in Freemont CA, and has spent it's entire almost 50 year life out
west. The floors have some surface rust, and the drivers top of the
drivers rocker panel has a little spot , see pics. Also, the wood in the bed is
shot. GM just used untreated pine, so needless to say it didn't hold
up very well.
This Longhorn is almost fully loaded: 350, TH 400 AT, AC, Tach, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Posi Rear axle, etc. It also has the factory 8" wide wheels that are hard to find. This Longhorn is the fancy CST "Custom Sport Truck" model. This truck runs and drives excellent. All the gages, tach, and lights work. the fuel gauge works, but might need a new float or sending unit. The 350 engine has good power, and the TH 400 transmission shifts nice and firm. The body is basically straight, however the white paint shows it's age.
