Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Here is my 1980 GMC. Just got it back from the body shop a month ago.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Purchased this sweet old girl 24 hours ago... 90K on the clock, 250 cid, three on the tree manual, and the original spare tire, manuals, etc. Going to desmog the 250, tune it up a bit, maybe add a lumber rack. Leaving her a stock as I can, though a Clifford header and an HEI might not be bad additions.

Not bad for $1900!

It surely seems so! The story I got--and the records appear to back it up--is that the original owner passed sometime in 2010, and his best buddy bought it off the widow.

Trucks was always garaged by the original owner, and has been in a shop for the last several years, too.

It has what I believe is the original spare, bias-ply tires with an '84 date-code, and very little damage anywhere.. A small rust spot on the hood lip, and just the tiniest little bubbling along the rear fenders. I'll proabably leave it be for a while, and eventually repair the rust and have it painted, though it'll be the same color.

Unreal. Love the interior. Paint wheels and hubcaps and you won't recognize it.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Thanks everyone. There are some truly gorgeous trucks on this site, and it's good to see some familiar avatars.

As for my new ride: I worked long and hard to scratch up some extra coin. Between a mortgage, student loans payments, two kids and a wife--all on a regional trucker's salary--it took some time to squirrel funds away and even more to search out a good buy.

For once, patience paid off.

Looks tough! Square bodies sure do seem to weather well.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

My free 79 454/400 c20 camper special.

Owner claimed broken crank, I found there was only one loose bolt holding the flexplate to the torque converter....

Also has shocks between bed and cab? Along with holes that lead to a threaded part for what I assume is camper tie downs never seen that before. I can take pictures
