A complete, running, inspected, mostly authentically restored, Task-Force, 3200 series, 3-speed on the tree, manual, foot start, Chevrolet 1/2 ton long-bed pickup truck for sale in central coastal Texas.
Consider living history. A dollar then is worth $7.57 now. Nixon was Vice President, "Leave it to Beaver" premiered, and Tang was introduced. Sputnik launched, stamps cost 3 cents, and B-52 bombers began full-time flying alert in case of USSR attack. Why discuss the bombers? Well, see the two chrome fins mounted on the hood below? They were called "Bomber Sights" when they were introduced by Chevrolet. This was an uncommon option in those days, but this truck was blessed to have them installed at the factory.
