Default Big dumb fun truck - GMC Medium Duty 4x4

Came across a truck and couldn't pass it up for a second time. Didn't need it but sure did want it so I bought it at auction when it by chance became available for a 2nd. time.

Truck fun facts:

1980 GMC Napco 4x4 conversion. 366/427 tall deck big block (need to verify block #'s), 5 speed manual, gear vendors over drive, hydraulic front winch, hydroboost brakes, Summitomo 385/65/22.5's on Alcoa rims... 20k original miles. Looks like someone started restoring it and stopped about 20% from completing it. It's very clean for its age. Was an old consumers electric service truck.

Right now I only plan to get it up and running. Currently it needs fuel lines ran to the engine, carb linkage rebuilt, brakes (everything is hooked up, just no pressure), hookup rear brake lights and clean up the wiring.

I'll build real doors for the service bed and finish up the interior later. I'd love to swap a 6v53TA Detroit Diesel into it but not anywhere in the near future.

The Ambalamps, TJ, my Super Duty & Cherokee Chief come first.

The only purpose for buying this truck is it makes me happy





My 5'8 goofy barefoot dumbass next to it.

Sleeve the frame, and put a Jerrdan Cougar HPL 6000 back end on it, with a twin lined 12,000 winches. That would be bad ass.

Only engine that would be swapped in would be a 2 stroke screaming Detroit.
