My 78' 350 custom dump truck. only 40 thousand original miles. Doing some work now but no pictures. Just had the dump body sand blasted and rhino lined, it looks amazing. Im going to be the only landscaper around with style.
Ha, somebody noticed, it's a 140" SCS frame with a crewcab grafted onto it, I cut 33.5" out of the bed, that small door on the bed is all that is left of the spare tire compartment.
The bed is now only 5.5 feet long, the SCS bed with the axle further back is what made the conversion look right, otherwise the back of the cab would be at the rear wheel opening.
There are some pics under my user CP "Old Super Crew" photos that sorta show the transformation.
Thanks, I has been a lot of work, I used to look at the dead SCS reg cab long bed rotting next to Grandma's house, I used to wonder what it would look like with a CC on it (I had a CC short bed years ago) so one day they said "you want it?" its free if you can get it out of here or it was being scrapped.
After sitting 7 yrs, I brought all fluids, a battery, fuel and a carb, used it all and drove it 50 miles home, with two piston skirts laying in the oil pan no less, it took from 2010 till now to get it where it is, so when somebody post a comment on how cool it is, it makes my day, thank you very much.
