Thanks. It would be a good candidate for a frame off resto some day. Until then it's just a nice looking work truck.

Nice K25. I don't see too many GMC K series trucks compared to the Chevys.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Abigail is looking a little cleaner. New wheels, and removed that bracket piece from the front. Trying to decide if I should keep this grill or look for an original replacement.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

My 87 V10. Originally was blue/gray, but some where along the way someone repainted it all blue. Someday it will go back to the original color scheme.
About a week after I bought it the snow hit....thankful I went with a 4wd.


And with the new tires back in March..

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Hopefully this works and it's the right size.... it's been a long time since i posted on a forum

1976, K20, 454, SM465, NP205, 14BFF, Dana 44, 285/75r16 BFG KO2, 16x8 Ultra 164-6882 +12mm offset. Truck has come a ways from the time I brought it home. About a UPS truck full of new parts, countless hours, and several busted knuckles later. I'm happy to call it mine. Waiting on new front end pieces, autometers are still sitting on my tool box, just scored some original fender tags. So maybe one day it'll be "done."

^ if someone like me is searching google like a mad man, hopefully they find that information useful. I looked, read, and googled imaged wheels on these trucks forEVER trying to find a backspace that would work. I wanted tires flush with fender openings, and that's exactly what I got. I saw another member on this site, or another. He had this setup, but only 2 pictures. I rolled the dice and came out a winner I think. I will say the inside of the wheel lip is CLOSE to the tierod end, but not touching. Zero rubbing so far. I had the tire place use stick on wheel weights when they balanced them. I had stickies on my other truck and never had a problem with them.

Is that a hand throttle I also see? Super clean looking truck, I love green interiors.

Yep, it's a hand throttle. Looks original, or at least it's been in it for some time.

Awesome. I've seen it in the parts catalog, never in a truck. What're your plans for it? (the truck)

I usually keep my old trucks for a year or two and then sell. We'll see how long this one lasts in the driveway. This one's super clean. The box is near perfect, not a dent. It had a camper in it for it's entire life. It's also got the factory Delco AM /FM /CB radio, which I haven't come across before.

I've never seen the radio in person, only in pictures. How does the handset hang on the bezel? That truck is an awesome find.

The handset is quite small, and light. It just has a velcro backing.
