If it runs I would put shiny new plug wires and new hoses on it then just drive the wheels off of it. Coming from a guy who did an engine swap and has a non running truck four years and counting.

I'd never have guessed such a good looking truck lay under all that road spray! It's all there and looks really solid.

Congratulations! Looks like it was a bit of a frosty trip.

Beautiful truck.

What color is it? Hard to tell in the garage
Post more pictures when you get it out in the sunlight.

Nice looking truck. Has all the extras. Door panels ,lock on drivers door. Even a chrome mirror. Funny thing is with the weather we are having out here now you can see why they would put another heater on the drivers side. :D,Doug.

Yes itís in great shape considering itís age
the colour is grey now. Previous owner painted it at home with comething close to origional. Which it looks like to be some sort of TEAL

Ignition keys open up passenger driver door. Only thing itís doesnt open is glove box

i tried moving the fan around it all moves not stuck.

Gonna try and change the plugs. Wires. Oil put a bit of gas see if I can get it to crank over

Old51f3 12-30-2017 09:38 PM

Lol no just a really really bad weather it encountered from Alberta to Toronto

EffieTrucker 12-30-2017 09:40 PM

It gives a literal meaning to the term "frosting."

Beautiful truck!! Be ready for that thing to fire off when you get go to "See if it will crank", I was just " Checking for fuel" when mine unexpectedly fired. I was stunned and shocked and excited all at the same time!! A feeling like no other and one that only comes around once in a lifetime for most of us so be ready. :-drink

Casper Iím sure you are right. I went to get parts I need but plug wires were not instock so I bought battery new battery cables. ****s and giggles turned the key. And tried it out. She cranked first shot but didnít start. 1 no gas and 2 i noticed my ignition coil wire was broken at the one point inside the coil
