Re: Luv # 3

I am also a member of the Luv truck forum ( imagine that ) . This truck was originally built local to me and was a father and son high school project . It at on time had a tune port motor in it . I was sent a link by member on here and a local friend Daniel . I reached out and made contact and after looking at the truck and setting up the deal . I ended up with the truck . I loaded up the truck and reached out to the original owner Chris and offered the truck back to him . Many of us wish we had the chance to get that "one" back . Basically offered up the truck for purchase price , plus some fuel. Original owner passes . I got the truck , a new ladder bar set up and the Moroso water pump alternator set up for what I thought was cheap. Here are some picks of the truck in it prime.

Re: Luv # 3

They just keep coming to me . I bought this one for 3 digit money . The headers and ladder bars were worth what I paid for it! I have a 8.1 liter and a 4L80E . I really want another 67-72 full size , but these just keep coming .

Sorry about your friend. You know I ride too. Have you been able to find someone else to help you with this one?

Re: Luv # 3

Thank you for the thoughts . His memorial is tomorrow .

I have found someone to finish this for me (cage and back half), but it will be febuary before it even gets hauled to him due to his back log . I have a month or so of odd and end work on it before he gets it cleaning stuff up and making it light .
