Re: Bought an 83, saying goodbye to my 74😢

Took my first drive in it and it runs good. Still needs some finishing touches. Entered a burnout contest with it. It did ok...already not liking those 2.73 gears. Need to upgrade to at least 3.42s.

Re: Bought an 83, saying goodbye to my 74😢

The color combo is starting to grow on me...didnt really care for it at first. I cant wait to wash n polish it. Its been sitting for 6 years so theres a bit of dirt on it. Cant wait to see what it looks like. This is the only truck I've ever seen in person with this color combo

Cool truck. Like your old truck too, would hate to turn loose of that. Build thread on your new one?

Thanks bro...I wasn't involved in the swap this time like I was on my old truck. Last time I actually did a lot of work on it myself with some guidance and I did make a build thread. This time my buddy did all the work at his shop n the pics in this thread are from when i would go check on his progress. Hes still doing some work on it right now. Waiting patiently for him to finish it.

Re: Bought an 83, saying goodbye to my 74😢

Update...well the truck runs and drives but its still not quite finished. The wiring is still not done and my buddy discovered that my floor pans are no good so I ordered some new ones that show be here next week. Hopefully after theyre replaced it will finally be finished. Here is a link to a walk around video I shot yesterday

Re: Bought an 83, saying goodbye to my 74😢

Well after an entire year I finally got my baby home! Runs and drives great! Has a couple of issues like an exhaust leak, power windows n locks donít work, no lights in the cluster n no license plate light. Gotta figure out a way to mount the pcm n fuse panel. Also needs a good clean up. Iím delighted to have her home😊😊

Re: Bought an 83, saying goodbye to my 74😢

Worked on it all day today with help from my neighbor. Installed a seat cover and console, led taillights, door striker bushings and new grant steering wheel. Went to start it after we were done n it wonít even crank. I know my battery is weak so I hope itís just that. Lights and radio work, fuel pump turns on but wonít crank. Also my horn doesnít work after the steering wheel install. The fuse is good so it must be the wire. Man itís always something with these old trucks smh. Hopefully I get it running tomorrow
