One owner 75 D200 440 auto. After slapping on another oil pump, which had been borrowed, an intake and carb, it runs great. Major tranny leak requires it to be removed and the obvious reason it was parked. No real rust on cab or cab floor...just the rear wheel arches on back.

I bought it for the 440 and the dana 60 but I think it's going to force me to sell the 69 D100.

Nice, too bad the box on the passenger side is wrinkled. I bought one several years ago similar to that for parts...the 400/727/203.

Yeah, it was rear ended slightly in that corner and farmer straightened to "good enuf!". The inside of the box is mint, it's like it was hardly used or at least protected except for one fist sized dent in the wheel well.

eek


OMG!! I'm having hard flashbacks right now! The Club Cab I owned back in the '90's was this same exact color (mine was a 1/2 ton though). I got rid of mine because the frame was coming apart I guess due to the high miles it had (300K+?). Mine had no real rust, but had numerous little dings and was lightly sideswiped down the passenger side of the bed. Mine originally had 360/727 and I swapped in a (stock) 440/727 from a '77 cop car. When I did the big block swap, I also swapped out the stock tank for a 36 gallon Ramcharger tank. Being that I did all this in the '90's, parts (and parts trucks) could still be found pretty easy and fairly cheaply.

*sigh*

Looks like a door for an auxiliary tank (you can kinda see it hanging down)

Nice. Grandparents had a 74 club cab power wagon with a 440, beige and dark brown with an orange stripe, so I've always wanted one. Just had to wait until the right deal came along.

Did a bunch of research on rust repair panels and I see they are very reasonable. Only pieces not available are the lower rear box corners.

That's exactly it. Steel tank mounted outside the frame. Odd it wasn't installed on the other side for better weight balance. Guy said his dad used it mostly for hauling cattle.

Talking about weight balance, after I installed the Ramcharger tank in mine, it rode soooooooo much better (I rarely carried anything), handled a little better, and the infamous drivers side lean was hardly noticeable.

If the original tank hadn't been cracked, I seriously thought about keeping it and having over 50 gallons of fuel capacity as I knew I'd be driving it out to (Phoenix) AZ from MA.

Probably a good thing I didn't. panic

That could be a nice old cruiser. I like the color combo.
