In 2012 I paid $1000 for my 85 GMC 1500 Sierra Classic - basically a Silverado. It has factory A/C, AT, PS, PDB, Cruise, Am-FM stereo w/ 4 speakers, Power windows, Power locks, rally wheels, S&T rear bumper, dual fuel tanks and Intermittent wipers.
In 2017 I bought four new tires and switched out the AM-FM for a stock looking AM-FM with MP3 jack. Also did the brakes all the way around and replaced a weeping axle seal. Last year I replaced the tired 305-4V with a 350-4v crate motor and got some Weathertek floor mats and installed a couple of USB ports.
I can work on it, parts are cheap, I can haul lumber, brush, car parts, whatever I want without worrying about scratches and dings. It gets about 18 MPG around town and doing 75 out on the highway.
I'm into it for about $5000 and figure she's good for another 100K miles. I'd rather have an old truck any day.
