Default My old man truck, tow rig

I did not need another vehicle, but I have been chasing this truck for years now. Not building just bragging Just brought it home tonight.

I'll have to get day pictures. 41k miles, 454, Th400 pretty much loaded for the year. Power windows locks, AC, Hydroboost, hidden gooseneck hitch, new tires excellent interior, never seen salt

Just bragging for now

It'll likely just get wheels/tires/winch

If it really kills me to drive maybe a 4l80 or gear vendors OD unit.

4L80 swap, get's my vote. unless you want to keep it stock.


Either way, that is one sexy truck. I like the colors too.....post up some interior shots!

It was dark and rainy by the time I got home. I'll get them tomorrow. Needs a headliner and dash pad.

There is also a ground issue with the radio, I open the doors and it shuts off and resets like the battery was disconnected. The same issue might be why the power windows have quit since I looked at it last year.

Good choice getting gas station pictures since that's where you'll be spending most of your time.

That is a long truck. Each end has it's own zip code.

Any exhaust upgrades planned? I think a TBI 454 (I think that year is TBI anyway) could definitely benefit from a little better exhaust system, over stock.

very nice!

would love to have one for a tow rig!

I think new rims and tires will make a big difference. 4l80 would be a nice upgrade (OD)...

Im jealous!

It has a newer dual setup ran, I still have not figured out any plans honestly

I'm still shocked I got the call saying come get it

Nice. It will be an awesome tow rig as-is for local Michigan use.

For a Michigan truck, that is really clean. Not to many that still have a body left on them thanks to the salt.

Good score.
