My new truck

Postby THE BOSS » Sat Jun 09, 2012 7:02 am

i found this kinda by accident, i didn't want the 600 HP pump gas engine it had in it, so i bought it rolling with the trans and converter.
it's really a nice truck, i have always like this body style and so does the wife.

i need a SBC, anyone have a street engine laying around?
we will own it and pick it up tomorrow.

Nice find. That looks like a dandy. Best looking truck body style ever....67-72 GM trucks.

i dont know much of the history yet. a guy from Middleville named Dustin owns it (until around noon today) his friend Tony showed it to me last weekend, he knew the truck well. they are, well were dunes enthusiast. but i think he said Dustin has only owned it for a year or maybe 2? i am not sure of that.

it's not cheap going to the dunes anymore, that may have played a part in his decision as well?

i am waking up Superkid in just a few, were on our way to go pick it up!

OH, i didn't say, it is a 1972 with historical vehicle plates

What are you looking for in terms of a motor? The one in my Jeep could be for sale real easy. Pump gas 358, 430hp and 450lb all before 6,000 rpm.
