A restored 1982 Chevrolet LUV with a 2.2L diesel, 5-speed manual transmission with a long box is up for auction on eBay. This powertrain combination and size is a dream ride for many small truck fans.
The owner of the Chevy LUV says it was fully restored 33,000 miles ago to original condition. The exterior looks to be in pretty good shape with only a few minor rust spots. On the inside, much of the original materials and seats look to be in good shape.
With its age, there are a few issues a new owner will need to consider. For starters, the speedometer doesn’t work and there are dings on the body. Also, the owner says for some reason the truck is low on power and has a top speed of 55. It also smokes under power and on startup.
Overall, this rear-wheel drive truck has no rust on the frame, the a/c works and the cosmetic items look pretty good.
This mad-decent Chevy LUV currently being offered for a fairly low $4,900.
