Trying to buy a truck from a buddy in Florida and have it shipped up to New York. Just not sure if its worth it.

Its a 1994 C3500, 454 motor, manual transmission, 2WD, single cab, 8 ft bed. 200k miles, and not a dually. Only a little rust on the bumper, he said 3rd gear and reverse are a little rough. Body and interior are in decent shape.


I've only ever driven the 5.7L 350 motor which I thought was pretty fast for its time, but I'm guessing with this motor, and transmission, this truck could pull pretty hard. Seems like a great project build for me, and most of the Chevys in New York are rust buckets. It has been a Florida car its entire life.

First off if it’s a k3500 it’s 4wd. Is it a c3500.

We don't know what source you use for your vin check. It's may just be generic. The 5th digit is " C " which is 2 wheel drive. 6th digit is " 3" which is 1 ton. If the 5th was " K " it's 4 wheel drive. The 7th digit is " 4 " single cab. So far so good. If you got a photo of the glove box tags, the load weights and RPO list you could figure out what options it's equipt with. Good luck.

I used the Chevy Vin Decoder. Ok so now knowing its a C3500, what's the value of the truck in its state?
