Looks like it just needs a few cosmetics.

Here's mine.

Re: New to me 1973 C20 2wd

i am looking into doing WV 16x8 steelies with a 28inch tall tire front 29 rear
with a switch suspension 6/8 drop(4/6 drop in a 1/2 ton it seems)
i lower everything i own so i am afraid this one will get the same fate!!
i will create a build thread as i do things.

I like it. These trucks look great just the way GM built them.

I totally agree! My favorite looking truck of all time, is the GM 1973-1979 pickups. I think GM was at their height of their styling back then. As my favorite car of all time is the 1970 Chevelle. My Chevelle is below.
