Well, this was going to be my shop truck when I bought it about 8 or 9 years ago. It was a good solid, non-rusty truck and the plan was to do a quickie backyard paint job and just drive it.
And then I got carried away.
351 W, C-6 automatic, B&M shifter, 9” rear,
tip-up front end, tilt column, 4 wheel pwr disc brakes,
pwr windows, pwr steering,
lots of new chrome etc. etc.
Base/clear black on a very, very straight body job.

It cost me $35K to get it this far – I’m asking $28K.

Gorgeous! If you can talk my wife into letting me get the truck and giving me the money, I’ll take it.

Nice work. And darn it, I just bought a truck. Mine is even black. That truck looks very nice. I can see why you might not want to use it to hawl lumber.
