Re: N2TRUX Ken your truck is for sale -- before

very nice looking 77 but come on with the 454 and t400 it will never get 13mpg. i have ran 454s before 8-9 mpg tops with load or no load my 77 crew with a 6.0 4l80e gets about the same mpgs 8-9 tops

Valid point. My buddy had one with 2.73 gears. It got 10 mpg no matter what.

I remember talking to the owner of your truck saying someone was coming to buy it. I was a couple hours too late. Never connected the dots that yours came from san antonio.
Pretty neat.

$9k for a 73-87 has dang well better get 13mpg with a big block, cause that's big money.

Re: N2TRUX Ken your truck is for sale -- before

What is that thing sticking out of the dash by the steering wheel - the chrome/billet looking stalk that appears to be coming out the edge of the dash panel?

That red truck is super sharp - looks like a brand new pickup. I didn't realize they made the Big 10 in a short bed - not doubting its real, just didn't realize it was an option.

My 78 Big 10 is a shortbed. Bought it new Christmas Eve of 1977. I'll admit, you don't see too many SWB Big 10's.
