Truck History

I have owned the truck for several years it is a Connecticut truck I believe I am the fourth owner it has not been on the road for a long time.
It was modified from original years ago with different running gear and paint. The front fenders were long gone and some fiberglas ones installed. I am restoring it back to the correct running gear and have changed the fenders to steel.
I lucked out in the fact no one cut up the dash for a newer radio which seemed to be a common practice.
I hope to get the truck on the road in 2005 my restoration is covered on this web page.

Truck History
 This truck had 98K miles on it when I purchased it in 1988.  It has been my daily driver since then and currently has 162K miles.  In 1999 I repainted it 97 Honda Black Currant (dark purple) after doing the typical rust repair in the cab corners, hinge pockets, doors and front fenders.
Upgrades include alternator, front disk brakes, dual master cylinder, Old Air A/C, Edelbrock 4 barrel carb, ZR-1 type rear roll pan with backup lights, Sun SuperTach III refaced to match the other instruments, HEI distributor from a '77 400" Pontiac V8, replacing the original "road draft" crankcase ventilation with a PCV system, 15x8" Rally wheels with chrome trim rings and knock-offs, replacing the oil bath air cleaner with a paper filter, replacing the cartridge oil filter system with a spin on filter system from a '77 400" Pontiac V8, removed 2 leafs from the front springs which drops the front end about 2", total replacement of wiring, replacing the "generator" idiot light with an ammeter, replacing the bench seat with a set of bucket seats from an S-10 Chevy pickup, moved the gas tank from the cab to under the bed and replacing the original (rotting) pine wood bed floor and galvanized skid strips with varnished oak and polished stainless steel skid strips.

Truck History
 Bought my truck in 1993 from a sandblaster in Holland and took it apart. It had a Chevy 283 in it.
I'm putting a 305 chevy with a 350 transmission in it. My biggest treasure is the aeroplane hood ornament which I found on holiday in the US. Hope to restart my restoration this year.
