Default **SOLD** ''97 Chevy Cheyenne 1500 long bed truck w/305 (2WD)

I picked up a clean '97 Chevy 1500 long bed from some friends of ours recently. I had visions of making it a utility/tow vehicle for myself, but I need a trailer more than I need a truck right now.

Mechanical Condition:
Our friends daughter drove the truck as a daily driver for about a year, but it started acting finicky a couple months ago, and wouldn't idle. They brought it to the local service garage (which I also personally use & trust), and were told that there were two (2) issues with the truck:
  1. Computer needs to be replaced
  2. Bad intake manifold gasket -OR- blown head gasket, most likely (some coolant coming out the exhaust)

The 305 motor ran strong prior to these issues. The truck has 194K miles on it, but the motor wasn't tired from a power standpoint. The tires are fairly new, and have a LOT of life in them. One has a very slow leak, and may need a plug, though.
Body Condition:
The truck is relatively rust-free. The underside of the cab & bed are pretty much spotless. There is a ding in the driver's side of the bed, and a few door dings on the driver door. There are also a couple dings in the tailgate (see photos of all of these imperfections).

MORE PICS IN THIS DIRECTORY


$500 OBO as-is. I might consider parting it out if anyone wants some of the bigger/pricier items, but doesn't have space for the full truck. Located west of Grand Rapids.

The only item I'd consider as a trade is a 12' - 16' utility trailer.

Thanks,
Craig

A friend who works on a fleet of city vehicles PM'd me yesterday and mentioned that it's probably the intake manifold gasket being bad...not the head gasket. He has had to replace the manifold gaskets on 9 of their 14 city trucks of similar vintage. He said the symptoms line up with this being the issue.

On a related note, mrclean would like this truck. Someone go buy some stuff from him so he can get my truck.
