Here’s something different.

The "box-body" Chevrolet C-series pickup was an all-new design, debuting in showrooms in 1973.

Design-wise, the C30 series featured various rounded edges to improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency and contrasted the previous generation squared-off C20.

Disc brakes up front, and drums in the rear, were new to the lineage. And the engines options were plentiful – from inline-sixes, to V6s, to four V8s ranging from 250ci to 379ci.

While C-series pickups were the workhorses of America, they remain a rare sight Down Under.

This one, a little rarer, as it features the top-spec Cheyenne Super trim level.

Up front, it’s had a 454 big block dropped in, and out back, there’s a removable Holmes 220 towing system.

The seller, Morgan’s Vehicles Melbourne, claims the car has had extensive work done recently, including power steering, air conditioning, and dualies out the back axles.

The odometer reads very low at 6736, but is more than likely representing the mileage on the engine swap.

The car represents a unique utility vehicle and talking point. The towing system, aside from its practical or even business applications, is an awesome talking point.

The interior looks impressively neat; with a bench seat free of visible tears, dash free of cracks or bubbles, and door cards that look almost new.

The car is listed at $19,850 and you can check out the full listing here!
