Well, I'd like to get rid of as much rust as I can, straighten the body out and give the mechanical/power train a good "once over" and drive it like I mean it!  May even try to restore the camper while I'm at it!  Never will see another one probably!  If I don't run it I will lower it.  It will have the stock l16 powerhouse, a 240 5-speed, decent blue paint job, whitewalls, stock rims, stock caps...  Gonna be hard to pull off the stock rims because the truck is supposed to have the mags, but the stock steelies and 620 caps is how I want to roll.  I'm thinking small things like a outside windshield visor, sleek mirrors, some pin striping, flapper exhaust...  Who knows!

I hope I can get it inside my "project" house's garage. and out of the rain...  I felt bad letting it sit in the rain today after all me, rusty and sharon went through to get it.  I went over and put a couple plastic bags over the places I thought might leak.

Here's a champion pose:

Knotty, I have the complete grille and headlight bezels and a nos front valence.

Thanks Slam!!!


I forgot to mention that this hasn't had anything but the camper in the back of it since it was new.  Rusty and I lifted up the camper a little and got a peek at the floor and it is NICE!!  No pictures of it yet, but I will have some as soon as I can lift that heavy thing off of there.  Will probably devise up a pulley system to get it out of the bed.

I want to ride it just like that PCD!!  I've got a lot of stuff running through my head!  I love the patina of this truck and I have to decide if I'm gonna keep it like that or not.  Would be really nice with some fresh chems on it though..

But yes, Rusty is great helper!  I hope I can return the favor!
