Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

OK. I've got two for ya! The red '80 was mine in Hawaii. The yellow one was one a won on ebay. The night I won the auction, it was stolen and wrecked...sigh. That's ok though, God worked it out with a 69 C-10.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

I've referenced this one a couple times on this board already, so I may as well add it here. My pics from a Barrett-Jackson auction a few years back, but not my truck:

You are right. That is a very nice '86. Wonder if he still has it and how it looks today?

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

They came on as far as I know, the '67-'72 Chevy trucks. Maybe others also.

They are the 'sport' mirrors & were available through 87. I bought some of them (GM NOS) when i bought my 74. The 71-72 style are slightly different from the 73 & up style.

Re: How about some pictures of '73-'87 short beds

URECKME, are those holes in your finder? Looks like bullet holes. Other than that, looks like a nice truck. Where are you getting the 700R4? With that set up what RPM do you think you will be getting around 60mph?
