Cars are expensive these days, with many well equipped, brand-new vehicles costing over $20,000. That’s what would make this 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne currently for sale on Hemmings for just $18,500 extremely enticing if we were located on the west coast.
If $18,500 seems like a bit much to you, the owner says the price is negotiable. In our opinion, this truck’s worth negotiating for, with a California-clean orange paintjob, mint-condition bodywork, a fully-functioning 350 V8 and best of all, a 4-speed manual transmission. It’s also a 4WD Cheyenne, so you could actually use it off-road, if you felt so inclined.
We have a feeling this truck’s value will only go up as time goes on, as long it’s kept in a similar condition to how it appears in Hemmings’ ad. It’s the perfect example of a vehicle that has been nicely preserved thanks to the south west’s warmer climate, and is thus rather enticing to Midwesterners and others from regions with harsher winters.
We don’t have $18,500 laying around at the moment, but if you do, check out the listing here.
