Finally got a truck!!

Well my wife found me a truck up in Russelville! I got it for $500 and going to pick it up tomorrow. It just needs a little bit of work to get running, distibuter and brakes!! I hope I can have it running for the Meet!

Cool. Link isn't working but I'm looking forward to seeing it next weekend. Hope you can make it even if you don't get it running

Do you have the photobucket page set as public? I forgot that the first time I set one up.

good score.. is that a 300? they're virtually indestructable, and produce more torque than a 302..

See you next weekend

Got the truck home today. Pretty good shape. minor dents here and there, some pin holes in the floors and that is about it for the bad rust. Everything else is surface rust. The inside of the bed is in GREAT shape, just needs a good cleaning. I will get some pics of it tomorrow, it got dark too fast. It does need a lot of brake work so I doubt it will be driving to the meet.

tojoski: Yes it is a 300, I will keep it in there till I get a 351W built for it.

I might like the 300 till I get the truck lifted and get my 40" tires I want. I could always keep it just really low gear it. I will have to do some looking around and see if I can find some built 300's and see how they run.

That's an awsome truck! I use to have one of those 6ers. I tried to break it and couldn't! Nice buy.
