Yes, a bit stripped this one is, especially for a 3/4 ton. My GMC 3/4 ton was ordered with the big block 402 (L47) and manual throttle (K31) plus rear air shocks (G66), heavy-duty front springs (F60), front sway bar (F59) and the posi-traction rear axle (G87). My other GMC 3/4 ton parts rig got most of the same and both have Stoner's wide rear step bumper too.

I wish I had known you had a extra bumper I could have used one on the one Ron has. the way they built them rechroming a rusty one is all most impossible.

Just bought it last October. I call it my parts Stoner but haven't taken anything off it yet. It may very well be the one to get restored, either by me or maybe someone else down the road. I'm kind of in a quandary on which way to go on the two of them.

still at best a 5000 dollar rig. the problem is they look at the price of a suburban and see what they bring. it confuses what they have, with what they don't.

Seller lowered price to $8,600 and the listing now shows ended. Not sure if it sold or he just pulled the plug. Anyone here buy it?

There must have been a $8600 bid, that didn't meet the reserve. If he lowered the reserve to that amount, then eBay will lower it by one penny, and then send a notification to the bidder that the seller has lowered the reserve or "Buy It Now" price. That bidder then has the right to confirm the original bid, and the price will go up by that penny, and the item will sell. If the bidder does nothing, then the auction will either end, or another bidder has a chance to jump in and win. In this case, neither happened, and the car didn't sell.

No bids Paul, it was a fixed price listing. I checked the seller's history for sold items and it doesn't appear there, only in his completed items so he apparently just ended his listing with no takers at $8,600 (the listing wasn't set up to take offers). Still, he may have sold it locally or offline.

I would say that he sold it outside of eBay.
