    For the past few months I've been nothing but combing ebaymotors, craigslist, and a few classic chevy boards looking for a solid classic k5. Just wondering if there is a goldmine somewhere I'm missing.... :x:

    other than that its patience, those are very desireable, hard to find, and expensive.

    Look for one out in CA or AZ or TX, too much rust in the East and Midwest.

    I've been looking for one too. Best place is to check out shows so you can see them. IMO buying something of that vintage sight unseen (Ebay) you run a pretty high risk of getting a spongy piece of shit full of bondo. On the bright new steal is cheap for C10's and K5's

    You might try coloradok5.com. Their forums have a pretty active for sale section, that's how I sold my '91 K5. Prices are pretty high on those first gen K5's, so you won't get off cheap anywhere unless you want to do a lot of work.

    I'm looking to sell my K5 but I'm pretty dead set on taking it out of it's current turn status before I do so, even if it is for a loss.
