Testimonials

"Jesmond and Gloria I happened to read some of the testimonials posted on your website and after our recent dealings feel compelled to add my two cents worth despite the fact I never usually give written testimonials other than in my work environment .Firstly I have to say that everything I have read pretty much sums up your combined service and approach to selling and buying of the classic cars you represent .Secondly having brought two cars , one sight unseen, and sold two cars in the last 12 months I can only reiterate the comments of others regarding your honesty and integrity and good communication. As for Gloria's attention to getting the logistics arranged smoothly and other follow up given the unfortunate delivery issue with one of the cars I bought, I cannot say enough and appreciate the efforts .It truly is a pleasure working with you on my NZ fleet of vehicles. Having also had the chance to meet you and spend a few hours looking at and talking classic cars during my last visit to NZ it is a pleasure to see someone else with the same passion and knowledge of classic cars .I see that your business is not just a business but is a passion to do the right thing by the people you are working with, be they buyers or sellers and also to do the right thing by the cars you sell .Given we are now working on another sell and buy opportunity I am sure we will continue to have more dealings in the future as my little fleet takes further shape Best Regards"

      Specifications


      Description

       

      Chevy pickups of 68 are handsome in appearance, streamlined for efficiency and solidly constructed to give a long-lived stamina in all types of service.

      Time proven independent front suspension and durable coil springs at all four wheels provide an extremely smooth ride with excellent carrying capacity for work and superior comfort for the driver and passenger.

      When this particular generation of C/K appeared towards the tail-end of the 1960s, Chevrolet still considered its pickup program to be a commercial effort, with the vehicles aimed primarily at tradespeople, businesses, and farms. This explains, in part, why there were so many of these trucks built: more than two million half-tons alone, with a sizable number of three-quarter and full-ton heavy-duty trucks on top of that number.

      This abundance of volume has proved a good thing, because as with many working-for-a-living trucks, there’s been a significant rate of attrition over the past 50 years or so; examples were driven into the ground by owners who viewed them as no more than means to an end.

      As a result, the sheer variety and splendor of the C/K is not only unmatched for its era of pickups but good ones today have become somewhat of a rarity.

      Trucks are the often-overlooked gateway into classic car ownership but interest have started to pick up over the past five years or so.

      The 1968 Chevrolet C/K is one of the most popular, reliable, and easiest-to-drive classic pickups you can find. This particular generation marks the turning point when Chevy realised it could offer truck buyers modern conveniences and comfort options in the same way it did sedan shoppers—a stunningly simple connection to make in retrospect, but one that blew the market wide open during a time when primary rival Ford steadfastly refusing to build anything other than the most utilitarian models for work use.

      The end result was a sales phenomenon that would see GM prolong its dominance over the Blue Oval well into the mid-’70s, pushing millions of examples of this generation of truck out of the factories and onto the roads, farm fields, and dusty barns. The 1968 C/K proved that you didn’t have to suffer a tin can cabin or a kidney-busting ride to get the job done.

      Flash-forward to today, and Chevrolet’s past progressive attitude has paid significant dividends for collectors. The driver-friendly nature of these trucks stands in stark contrast to both their predecessors and their contemporaries and their dead-simple mechanicals make them inexpensive to maintain.

      Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
