I finally got a chance to get pics of my new piggy. It's a '74 with a chopped roof. It's getting a SBC, Sm465, and 3spd case. And the SOA starts this weekend. :D Oh yeah I only paid $150 for it.

I think the shackles may be the least of a few worries on this truck ;)

Yeah, I bought with a 40. And I didn't have the heart to part it out and scrap the corpse. So I drug it to Atlanta from Kentucky. It's getting a set of sliders from iron pig to fix the rocker issue. I have a new windshield and trading some parts off the 40 for a hood. I am taking the drive train out of my '71 fj40 for the 55. This truck was brought from CO to KY (It had a CO inspection sticker on the windshield) and the tag was current to 2003. It has the SBC mounts in it already. I hope to have it going by the first of the year.

Cool and glad to hear of another getting on the road.
I just got a 78 a couple of weeks back.
Looks like a bit of work, but sweat equity is pretty nice when you have the time.
