Back in 1989, a ’69 Chevy pickup would simply be used as a work truck. Since then, the collector truck market has exploded and with a lot of attention focused on ‘67-72 Chevrolet pickups. In the past few years, it is nearly impossible to attend an auction and not see several quality examples. This truck would’ve made a great classic for the beginning collector given its low price and simplicity of maintenance, plus a solid return on investment to boot.
