Nice truck. Here in Michigan I see that particular body style everywhere, so it's not really on my favorites list as much as the mid 70's trucks are,
but I'm sure that given the rapid decay of the majority of them, they too will become classic trucks eventually.
On another note, finally managed to get a set of tires for my truck, and although stock equivalent, my 77 will be back and running within a few days.
Long story short, I had a weatherchecked tire go out on one set of tires I had, and a sidewall blow out on the other set. I had two sets of tires, 2
new in each set, 2 at 25 percent tread and neither usable. So, given that I was looking for a set of used tires to replace the bad ones, I came across
a guy with a host of goodies at his house, and I picked up another little goodie for my classic that will "step" up the look of it.
I purchased a step side short box from the guy for 200 bucks today. I hope to have it on the truck within a month or so because I have to replace the
wood floor and weld a couple small holes, but other than that, it's in fantastic condition and a heck of a deal.
I will post pics of the lift kit, bed and other new parts when I get working on it, hopefully before it snows.
Anyone else have a sharp truck or project they would like to share?
