Nah....it's really a grade "C" at best, but still cool.

Please keep ALL pics subject related. This is your last warning before infractions are issued.

As a suggestion, it would be in your best interest to think before you post. Showing your imability to make mature decisions does nothing to improve your image here.

No, it's the actual throttle linkage, the kickdown is just laying on the intake. I havn't ordered the proper hardware for it or the kickdown yet.

It was sweet, but it didn't belong posted here. I think the post got deleted. Ken has been keeping an eye on this thread, and warned of posts not related to 73-87 trucks.

Thumbs up Re: random 73-87 pic thread

i have been out of the business for about 15 years, but i used to make a living with these trucks. this was in about 1994 (We loved the square bodies--especially 454s).

the square bodies had been "out of circulation" for 4 or 5 years. the round headlight truck is a '73. it made 10-15 calls a day until it met its demise to someone who pulled out in front of it. then we salvaged the 1973 bed and put it on an '84 GMC.

seemed fitting as you cant get much more random than this pic.

i am in the middle.

Re: random 73-87 pic thread

my dad drove a 78 chevy wrecker in the 80s with stacks (you know, side pipes on their side) well the core would all blow out in a month and you'd have straight pipes. they called it the "Muffler Chomper" the way it ate though mufflers. the junkyard he worked at ran the truck for 11 years without plates or inspection stickers, just an USA-1 on the front lol

Re: random 73-87 pic thread

Wow, lots of random pics in here. I am the meaning of complete randomness.

Hey Kenny, I have a couple of questions about your truck.
1) Would a tailgate like yours be a direct fit on my '81?
2) Any idea as to how much a set of wheels like yours would cost?

I think a 77-79 tailgate will work on your '81, but you will have to get the left and right hinges for whatever tailgate you're using, but are otherwise the same. The upper hardware should be the same, IIRC.

I think a set of wheels like mine goes for $150-$200, I THINK. Those were given to me for free from a family friend who bought rims for his 2500.
