This showed up on craigslist yesterday and today it's mine. Perfect for my 410 stroker, 727 and 8.75 sure grip setup. I got it for $900. Life is good again.

Under hood. It came with a 318 and two 4 speed OD transmissions as well as all the original parts. Seat looks almost new.

Sweet!

To bad your not closer. Id take the stick parts if your hands. Found a truck local but don't have a warm place to tear it apart to recoup the extra cost to get the parts wanted

Cool. I looked at a similar truck with a stepside bed this weekend. Never did ask for a price, though. Neat trucks that have loads of potential.

whats a seaside bed?

nice score stumpy whats the plan? the 4 speed will use the same driveshaft & yoke as the 727.

IIRC you have a floor auto shifter so the colum is good to go as is also.

are you going to lower it any? long shackles? flipflop maybe?

hope you post lots of pics of it as you build it up with your good parts.

For the present time I'm going put my drive train in it and finish off the interior. Next year I think it will get repainted the root beer brown it was originally. This one is going to stay stock looking. No lowering or any other exterior changes. Well I will change out that big rear bumper for a lighter one.
