Sounds awesome Tony. Need to get a few pictures for us to drool over.

I broke an exhaust manifold bolt this afternoon. Now not only do I have a cracked manifold now I have a broken bolt as well. Oh and it was the first one I tried.

It seems to have the same problem my trucks have. The some of the tires seem to be flat on the bottom.

The truck has been sitting for 15 years,hasn't been started in 3-4 (I still haven't started it) there is only one bad rust spot on the drivers front quarter and some surface on the front of the hood. other wise it is solid straight metal.The po said there is 3k on the tranny(c6 out of a farlane) and 20k on the motor(original was a straight 6) it is also missing the seat.

It looks to be in pretty decent shape. Probably just need a little fresh fuel in the tank and a little priming at the carb.

Probably a good idea.

Looks like a good find though. Hard to find oldies that don't have a lot of issues.
