I had to save this one…this poor thing sat under tarps in Seattle for years and years. Its amazingly enough it did not have very much rust. The floors and ‘smugglers box’ were replaced with panels from OPG and professionally installed. I made a point not to purchase ‘out of country’ reproduction parts and can honestly say I only had to throw my hands up after extensive searches and purchased about 12 reproduction parts!! Even the brand new front brake rotors where made in the USA from one of the last brake manufactures in this country!! I was given many NOS GM parts in the bags, lovingly saved through the years from the past two owners! All the outside trim except for the bed corners and drip rails were brand new NOS, including the badging!!
Some small upgrades where made on the engine, its fresh and believed to be bored over .030. Thumpr 1 Cam from Comp Cams(always wanted a rumpty rump idle), Torquer II intake and Holley Street Eliminator 780 carb. Headers and 2.5
