I purchased this truck in 1997 in Riverside CA the previous owner wouldn't recognize it in it's present form.

it was a Garage Queen. He had started some modifications, but the things that sold me on this truck were the straight rust free body and frame. it also had a 351C-4V closed chambered motor from a '71 Torino. I was familiar with that motor a got it running. It didn't run when I got it. I soon changed the brakes, suspension and steering, and also went to a 400 with the 4V closed chambered heads. More recently, I upgraded to the Tim Meyer 434 with my own EFI setup.
