Back To It’s Glory
A fellow employee’s husband purchased the truck new in 82. The BASIC options were a slant 6 with an automatic, PS and power brakes. At later date we used a 318 and installed till I took ownership of the tired truck in late 2018. Thinking I would just sell the truck and having that chance fall through. I decided to rebuild it and that’s when it all broke loose. Truck had to be taken all the way down with floor boards being replaced as well as a section of the roof cause of rust. Luckily a fried had an 86 parts truck so I was able to upgrade the truck with options like delay wipers, A/C, rear cargo lift and 86 interior. An 85 318 was found and re built to replace the tired one that was under the hood. All custom body mods were done by myself as well as the home made rear bumper. LMC carpet and seat kit helped to replace the damaged interior and add comfort. The custom two tone green paint is a sight to see in the sun as well. Truck rides on 17” Rev wheels with a 2”/4” drop.
