building a mule

Hello all,
some of you guys have seen a bit of my truck project in another thread that i started by asking a couple of questions and after some great advice ive started to move foward on what i hope will be a fun buld/restore of a 64 k10. The truck was purchased from a friend of the family in nw montana about 2 months ago. its previous life was staight up ranch truck. it was parked in the spot i dug it out of back in 1994.

Re: building a mule

i was also fortunate enough to be able to build a small shop while i was home between fishing seasons not quite as big as i would have liked but more than i had before for sure.(wife and kid took over the attached garage "we dont do snow " they said)

Re: building a mule

i just aquired a sbc 350 and turbo 350 and a 400 sbc with a turbo 350 thinking about building a 383 stroker for the mule what do you guys think ? i picked up both engines and trannies for 500 and a set of seats out of a 2001 silverado couldnt pass it up even if i dont use them shouldnt be hard to at least get my money back

Re: building a mule

Great truck. Classic how they parked it and just used it for storage bin. I assume it quit running for some reason? Sounds like you got a steal on those motors. To be honest though, I think I'd be pretty excited about building that original 327.

Re: building a mule

from what i can find the 327 was not available in 64 so im not really too concerned about keeping it original i may just drop the 350 in and sell the 400 and 327

Re: building a mule

when i removed the windshield i found the outer and inner roof was rotted through
not good but the upside is i found a good cab just down the road from my place the guy pulled the cab and loaded it on my trailer for 500 bucks its nearly perfect except the place where the rockers meet the floor
