Do we have any Square Body Chevrolet fans in the house.
These are not shiny hot rods but keep in mind these trucks are over 30 years old and still working for a living to this day.
This pair of Square bodies are my present day work trucks that we keep around for working on our property.
1984 Chevrolet K20 Silverado.
We were in need of a heavier duty truck for doing work on our property and got lucky and found this one on craigslist back just before this past winter.
All original just as it came from the factory including the paint and the A/C still works. We put the dump bed in it but other than that this is pretty much just how we bought it and this truck gets used every day.
I got sick of doing this after many years of dealing with removing snow this way.
So before this past winter we repaired the bottom mount for this snow plow.
1982 K10 Chevrolet
We have owned this truck for a long time. It was my Father In Laws for many years then my son bought it from him and then I bought it from my son. It has been in the family for more than 25 years now. I still have all of the original parts that have been removed including the original bed.
This was set up to serve as our firewood truck so we put the winch on the front and the beater bed on it so we did not destroy the original bed. The body on this has never been restored and is honestly still in very good shape.
I am considering putting the winch and snow plow over on to the 1984 3/4 ton truck and restoring this one back to it’s original glory.
Back in my 20’s and into my 30’s it was all about the shinny go fast stuff of both 2 and 4 wheel variety.
Getting older now and living in the Mountains of West Virginia I am just not into the go fast hot rod thing anymore.
Now it is all about providing what we need and that comes down to trucks that can work, not go fast, look pretty and play.
But I still love the old school non computerized stuff.
