Re: Project two tone.

Here's another. It's a 292 with a 600 cfm edelbrock and clifford intake with headers.

Re: Project two tone.

Well, I have a heck of alot to catch up on. Thanks administration for fixing the uploading problem! Since I last put up pictures I have painted the rear frame, gotten a new set of tires, primed the bed and fenders, got a new set of mirrors,
new fuel tank, brakes, and a master cylinder. Here's a picture of the mirror, Jr West Chrome off of Classic Parts.

Re: Project two tone.

A little history on the rig, It was bought new in 66 and used as a log truck until the 90's. The original bed was taken off and replaced by a flatbed. It was loaded to the hilt with logs and served as an off road truck even though it is only two wheel drive. Sometime in the early 2000 somehow a friend of mine found it in the revene and talk to the man and he said he could have it if he could take it outta their. After putting some fuel down the carb and cranking it they finally got it to start, after 13 years off sitting in that revene. My friend decided he didn't want it so one day I found him in my driveway with the truck and he said I could have it. It sat for another 5 years before I started the restoration.

Re: Project two tone.

Here's a picture of the flatbed that used to be on it during loging days. That thing weighs about 600 pounds! Sometimes I wonder why I took it off, Most of the time I'm glad I pulled it off!LOL!

Thanks! the arms on the mirrors are adjustable, loosen the bolt and they slide back and forth, come in handy so the mirrors don't appear diagonal.

Gonna put the truck to good use today on the farm while waiting on a friend from here on getting his spare tire carrier. Hoping to do a spare tire attachment fender style.

Yeah, before I got the 4 barrel I was running a 350 holley two barrel. Either I blew both the power valves or something else was srewed, cause sometimes it would work great and other times not.

A great hei is the Davis Unified ignition. You can purchase them at Precision Automotive Specialists. They run $300 I believe but deliver 50,000 volts!
