Hemmings Find of the Day – 1971 Chevrolet Cheyenne pickup

Published in

In 1971, Chevrolet introduced a new trim level into its C/K pickup series. Though hardly luxurious by today’s standards, the Cheyenne trim included things like additional padding in the seats; more attention to noise, vibration and harshness control; carpeting; chrome trim; and lower side molding. Perhaps most significant to buyers was that the Cheyenne (and its cross-brand equivalent, the GMC Sierra) didn’t look like a bare-bones work truck, allowing suburbanites to park pickups in the driveway without raised eyebrows from neighbors.

This 1971 Chevrolet Cheyenne, for sale on, is clearly a K-series four-wheel-drive model, but what lurks beneath the glossy hood is anyone’s guess. The base engine for Chevrolet trucks in 1971 was the six, followed by the optional 292 six, the 307 V-8 and the 350 V-8, so we’d want to clarify that before making any kind of offer. Overall, the truck appears to be in solid condition, ready to work or play for its next owner at a significantly lower price than a modern rig. From the seller’s description:
