Default A teaser of my new truck.....more pics added first post




The Story:

It has sat for 4 years. Mice took over the cab, so I am going to swap over another cab. It will fire on four cylinders, I need to replace two injector lines. The trans is busted up along the pan, as the driveshaft let go at the tcase, and took it out. Need to pull the trans to see if it can be fixed (727 trans) Other than that, the cab is rotted along the top of the windshield (common for these trucks). Has the wiring for a western plow (old owner wants the mount back). But, it runs. Next year, I might look into a crew cab to drop the driveline into, as a reg cab does not work to fit a family of 5 in.

he did. but instead of selling it to me for a fair price, he went and started a bunch of and got A LOT less than if he had just outright sold it to me.
