Gold Plated Gruen Day / Night Jump watch. These are extremely rare. Go ahead and search yourself. After searching I only found 6 of these retailing worldwide. They are retailing for 595 USD and 695 USD at a dealer in Dallas and 757 CAD in Toronto. Another going for $400 USD and yet another for $1000 USD. The watch is clean and works fine. Some minor scratches on the acrylic face. I have been using for a month after retrieving from storage. I am the 2nd owner (after my Grandpa) and have had in storage close to 30 years. It works fine. (Windup watch). If you want proof of value let me know I can provide. Its a rare $700 piece. Contact via rdbrough@gmail.com if no answer on phone.

Payment in cash only (14,500) or half in cash half on bank draft (15,000). Sold twice for asking price. Priced low due to its location.

Coming up on 114,000 original Kilometres. ~70,000 Miles Only.

Owned by an Engineer/Mechanic with OCD. Never been abused and is well maintained.

Refer to this link for a mechanic's perspective of this specific year of Chevrolet Truck and what you can expect as owner. No issues with this truck and AFM if one drives it properly. GM messed up when they labeled Overdrive as 'D' on the shifter. The real regular every day around town gear is '3' on the shifter. These trucks can easily go 200,000 miles or more.

Just finished a thorough cleaning.

6.0 L Vortec MAX. (Corvette engine, big power and has some zip.) Aluminum block. Aluminum drive shaft. Black leather interior. This truck has every available option for that year. Including Navigation, Bose Premium Sound System, Remote Start and Alarm System, Heated Leather Bucket Seats.

Immaculate condition save for a few cosmetic scratches and dings. Has some rust under rear fender flares, some barely visible surface rust on door edges. One dent in the drivers door barely noticeable. This truck has never seen oilfield roads or been beat up. Has been to Phoenix Arizona a few times with the original owner and sat in his Calgary garage most of the time. I have all maintenance records including Carfax report.

The truck was bought back from the salesman that originally sold it and used briefly before I acquired it in 2018. I have put ~25,000 Km on it and nary an issue. I have changed the plugs and wires, serviced transmission, added Throttle Body spacer, K&N Full Flow Air Filter, added new front Rancho struts to 'level' it. New Monroe coil-over back shocks. New throttle body sensor. Have just completed a flush of the engine sludge buildup. Belts changed. New LED headlamps. New Halogen High beams. New interior LED's. New rear brake pads, front pads at 70% remaining. Oil change, greasing, throttle body cleaning, all hinges lubed, spare taken down and winch lubed, all just completed. And much more. Its all good. MINT!

No cracks in windshield, no cracks on dashboard. Leather still good. Interior is very clean and immaculate.

Has tonneau cover and an aluminum jockey box complete with a few emergency road items, tow-rope, flares etc...

Very well maintained. (I am mechanically inclined and do it all myself). Drives really well.

Hate to see it go but not really needed anymore.

There is a recall notice on the airbags. GM has yet to receive parts to correct it. (No issue) That will come with the documentation package I will provide the buyer complete with Carfax and all my maintenance receipts.

Mandatory Alberta 32 Point Inspection completed Oct. 2019. (At ~99,000 Km's) Stabilizer links replaced and sway bar bushings. (12 year mandatory inspection with all identified issues repaired)

Minor leakage issue with 3 tires (Tires are 70% worn out,) pressure sensor valve stems leaking. I was going to pull them and install regular valve stems but held off. Maybe the new owner wants to buy new sensors ($250) and tires. Rims have some cosmetic flaking of coating. I will fix this valve stem issue no additional charge after a deposit is provided.

This truck retailed for ~42,000 dollars in 2008 and is less than half miled out. (240,000 Km is the general life span of these trucks). Yer getting a deal because of it.
