the older the truck the less hassle you have with electrical issues everything is more simple than the newer ones. hard to find an old one without rust thou

Granted the 350 engine merged into the 5.7L, however they are not the same engines. Theres enough differences that they are externally different engines. Most notably carb verse fuel injected.

Also the trannies changed over the years. The older TH350 doesnt have overdrive like the 700R4/4L60.

However the early '70 models are the coolest of the K5's.

One last thing, the early 70's models also had full time 4x4.
