Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Chevy truck comes with a hot tub, so get ready to get your thong on. We’ll start warming up the water while you start figuring out if this tow truck is worth its wet and wild asking price.
According to its ad, the odometer on yesterday’s 1982 Saab 900 Turbo stopped working at an admirable 215K. That was a good run and you couldn’t blame it for wanting to retire after rolling its barrels so very many times. You also couldn’t blame that Saab for its price, and in fact very few of you did, earning the car an equally impressive 90% Nice Price win.
There’s a possibility that with any old car you might just suffer the frustration of a breakdown, perhaps even far from the comforts and conveniences of home. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could take one of those comforts along with you, not just in the offhand event of some mechanical or existential breakdown, but just because that’s the way you roll?
If you’re sitting there nodding your head and muttering to yourself “yes… YES! That’s exactly how I roll!” then have I got a truck for you.
Check out this 1983 Chevy C60 Medium Duty Crew Cab Two-Ton and its—wait for it—inflatable hot tub. I know what you’re thinking: this thing’s literally like a ZZ Top song on Moon discs and retreads.
The seller says that the truck was originally built to tow Bonneville racers to the Salt Flats for record runs. It apparently had been sitting for several years since but was recently brought back to life and now serves duty as party central and a rolling totem for the anti-Prius crowd.
The ad notes the recent addition of a rebuilt carb and new fuel pump, but the seller couldn’t be bothered to climb up there and read a block stamping to determine just exactly what sort of big block V8 this truck rocks.
What we do know is that the mill is backed up by a four-speed manual and the expected 2-speed rear end. It’s a flat deck set up ready for fifth wheel towing or… a toasty soak with a friend. Considering the weight of this thing, you’ll never need to smog it either.
The interior has been redone at some point, eschewing any sort of business-like vinyl and rubber for a natty tweed covering most every surface. You get three-across seating front and back, and a ride height that would put you on eye level with 737 pilots.
Outside, there’s flames, and not the bad kind like on certain modern Ferraris, but the good, hot rod kind. You also get substantial running boards to aid entry and exit, and mirrors big enough to do Lindsay Lohan levels of coke off of.
If you have a need for a truck like this, well then this just might be the truck you need. The asking price is $5,000, but for just $500 more you get the hot tub too and quite honestly I think it’s the portable cannibal’s pot that really makes this truck.
That’s why we’re going with $5,500 for the price and why you’re voting on that amount right freaking now. What do you think, does this C60 seem like it’s worth that kind of scratch? Or, hot tub or not, does that price mean getting seriously soaked?
