Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!

what have you got to trade?

funny, I've been installing those diamond tread running boards on all my trucks since 1985. The store guy always tries to sell me newer modern designs. hopefully I can put 33"'s on and not have a fitment issue.

Re: how about some interesting factory two tone paint pics!

Here is an old 78 I dragged out of a junkyard the other day. It was silver and green. Kind of an odd color combo.

Re: how about some interesting factory two tone paint pics!

Don't think I've ever seen a 'burb in a crate...er...with woodgrain sides. Different for sure and I agree, I'd roll in it!

I agree! That burb would be very nice, especially with a 454.

Re: how about some interesting factory two tone paint pics!

Here most of the old 4x4's have been hauled away for scrap. This truck was gonna be scrapped also, but I was able to buy it before it happened. Most trucks are non-existant in salvage yards here, especially any square.
This truck is a 350/th350/203. I will get it running again hopefully.

Not sure if your truck is lifted but I had 33 12.50s on my truck with a 2-1/2" lift. I had to notch the running boards. The tires still rubbed slightly.

My Grandpa sent my 16 year old (at the time) uncle down to the dealership to order a new work truck late in 1976. He picked those colors on a 77 GMC Sierra Classic. 454, TH400, wood bed, pw, pdl, cruise, AC, tilt, tach, dark green interior, factory CB etc. I drove it for about 5 summers when I was in high school and college when I would head to Portland and work for my other uncle who ended up with it. That's what really got me started into these trucks.

I plan to build my 86 SWB in those colors.
