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.

Hah! Interesting that we both live in Mission but you’re in Texas and I’m in British Columbia.

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.

I can buy a few city blocks, in some cities for less

just because you dumped 35K n2 it

doesnt mean its worth it, not to say that it isnt but

I would luv that shop truck, but not for 35K.

and 28K

u might be driving that for some time, and if it were mine, I would enjoy the ride : )
