Ironically nicknamed “Square Bodies” today, Chevrolet called its third generation of C/K trucks introduced in 1973 the “Rounded Line” as their new truck featured many radius details not traditionally seen on pickup trucks up to that point.  Rounded details included: windshield corners, cab roof corners, door frames that cut high into the cab roof, slanted front fenders, and rounded pickup box corners.  Production of third-generation C/K’s lasted through the 1987 model year with only minor changes. Despite all of the modern features, Chevrolet continued to offer the option of wood-planked floors in either Stepside or Fleetside bed configurations.

For 1977, the front fascia underwent a second revision, with Chevrolet and GMC receiving larger-segment grille designs.  On all trims, the interior received revised door panels (covering a larger portion of the doors).  As an option, the C/K offered power windows and power door locks for the first time.  1977 was the last year for the exposed passenger side fuel cap; later Square Body models feature a fuel door instead.

The private seller reports he and his team just completed a full restoration of this 1977 Chevrolet K20. The K20 designation identifies two facts about this truck.  The “K” confirms this truck features four-wheel drive, while the “20” means this is a 3/4 ton truck.  Not only is the eight-foot-long bed a rare option on K20 pickups, but this example also features freshly-installed oak plank flooring with a very nice finish.  The seller reports this freshly restored truck features its numbers-matching 350/Automatic powertrain. We have more details very soon, so stay tuned!

The LemonSquad Pre-Purchase Inspection (“PPI”), completed several days before this auction, confirmed this 1977 Chevrolet K20 Cheyenne is a nicely restored 4×4 long bed pickup with several minor items needing attention noted in the report.  The picture below contains the Lemon Squad Pre-Purchase Inspection.  To review the Pre-Purchase Inspection, please click on the picture below.

    I drove a lot of these as company vehicles in my younger years and I have to think its not the 8′ bed that is rare, but the wood flooring. I’m not sure you could get a c20 or k20 in anything but an 8′ bed.

    Is this a reserve bid?

      Yes, on the bid page, you will see a Reserve Meter that changes from blue to green as the high bid increases. You can use this as a guide to understand how close the bids are to meeting the seller’s reserve price.
