History
I bought this truck from a friend about 18 years ago along with a drop front axle for $1,500.00. Chasing down a clean title for it was an adventure, but it got done. The truck was pretty much just a shell. It had an old Pontiac 347 engine and transmission in it, but not running. That drive train went away very quickly and I sold the drop front axle.

Modifications

Drivetrain
The drive train I put in the truck is a Ford 460 and a C6 transmission. I built the very stock like 460 myself and found the tranny and had it rebuilt.
Interior
Not yet :(
Exterior
While the body has pretty much been worked all around, it's still in primer and very much a project.
Suspension
The front end of the truck was subframed with a 1978 Pontiac Trans AM front clip. The guy I bought the truck from does this work and he carried the load on that swap. I helped out here and there as my skills allowed. We set the stance fairly low in the process. The rear end is a full size Lincoln w/disc brakes. This axle was installed with reverse eye leaf springs to finish off the lowered stance of the truck.
