Possible new project..

Found a 78' D150 short bed. 360/727 work truck, original owner. Not running sitting on a farm.. if this works out I'll stick a g3 in it along with a spare 46rh to make street truck out of it. We will see...

Leave the 727 and drive it locally only will be faster and way more fun.

Those 70s D100/150s still have a spot in my heart.

The owner wants to make the truck a grandson/grandpa restore project. Recognizes that it probably won't happen but wants to hang onto yhe truck.. I don't blame him, but it's disappointing all the same. Found a 56' Willys pickup. Looks rough but if I bought it I will cut it up to get the propositions like I want. No doubt a chop top and channelled cab to get a street rod stance. Sort of a sixties style hot rod. I have a bit of a vision thats difficult to describe. Will look at it tomorrow to see if a deal can be stuck...

I looked at the truck. It's been sitting the woods behind the owner's house for over 20 years. All the glass is still in it, so the cab is actually in pretty good shape. Actually the truck is complete and not in as bad of condition as I expected. Needless to say we stuck a deal. The owner's son is putting wheels on it today so it can be winched onto the trailer to bring it home tomorrow. First order of business will be to strip the frame and check it's condition. If found useable, I'll box it and prep it for a 9.25 axle and IFS. Engine mounts for a Gen III and trans mount for 46rh trans. This will be traditional street truck (hot rod) running one of my Gen III engines. I'm super excited to get this project started. I'll most likely start calling it a hemi truck when the mounts are installed... stay tuned... lol
