I just picked this up last night from a couple that have had it since 77 down in alabama. The truck has been sitting for a number of years and the motor is seized, there are various other parts missing or broken on this truck but it looks very restoreable to me. I never quite got a straight answer about the year the engine was replace some members of the family said 78 79 some said early eighties. I'd like to see if I can get the original motor running and drive it more or less as is while I fix all the smaller problems with it. I pretty much have no idea what I'm doing so I'll be asking for help and searching around to find answers on here. I can tell the truck has had plenty of shady tree mechanics work on it.
