Hey PRG,
Welcome Again! Your truck looks pretty good - not a lot of obvious rust. Your interior looks a lot better than our's did. We cleaned our's up & sprayed the interior with bedliner. Does it run?

It did run back in 2000... I need to massage it back into shape again. I really would like to put something more modern into it engine wise. I want to drive it but need A/C and all that good stuff to make it comfortable.

That sounds good. What did you have to do to get it running?

Hey Paul,
That's fantastic news!!!!!! I'll keep an eye out for you - I expect you'll be driving down 183 soon!!!!

What's next on your list?

All it took was pretty much the basics.. points, plugs, distributor cap, clean the gas tank, and a new fuel pump... THEN a turn of the key and lucky me!! IT'S ALIVE!! ALIVE I SAID!! lol Still need a little more before I can be running up and down 183 Ben but hopefully soon... It was really nice to hear it run and run strong (let it run for about 1hr and no over heating issues). Big relief to know the flatty is still going strong.
