1978 gmc 4x4 shorty with 73 arizona cab
Truck is located in Whitmore lake MI 48189
I have a 78 chevy 4x4 short bed that I bought as a project truck a few years back and now have a jeep! I'll describe it the best I can and if anyone shows interest in it I will get some pics up!
78 gmc grand sierra body is kinda shot, floors are gone, bed is toast! The 350 chevy engine has around 85000 miles, previouse owner had all the seals done on the motor due to oil leaks! engine ran great when I picked it up but after starting it 3 times the flexplate went to shit and now has missing teeth! as of 2 years ago when purchased the radiator, master cyl,& battery had just been replaced, truck has been in storage for the last 2 years. also the front driveshaft is out, the guy couldnt afford to replace the u-joint! also has a bunch of misc body parts sitting in the bed (covered)
I also have a 1973 chevy cab from arizona that I picked up 6 months after buying the truck, had minor lil rust spots that I sanded down (keep in mind I am no body man) purchased a roll bar for it and had a friend weld it into the cab, have since bought a tilt steering column also, has been sitting under a tarp with primer so has gotten a lil surface rust, I will be giving it an acid bath next week and a dressing of wd-40 to keep it from rusting up instantly!
here is what I have into it
Roll bar-----------------$240 from s&w race cars
used bfg 35's (a/t)------$100
used sunvisors off ebay -$15
FIRST $750.00 TAKES IT! If you live kinda close I can help with delivery
