Description:

1985 Chevrolet C/K Pickup 1500

It's hard to know where to begin with this truck...so I suppose I'll start with it's heart...the motor.
This engine started life as a 1970 402ci. (I have pictures of casting number if needed). The motor has been torn down to the bare block and sent to Lozano Brothers Porting (LBP) in New Braunfels, TX. LBP used to manufacture motors for NASCAR, and still do for the Porsche Daytona (Le Mans & 24 hr Daytona, prototype class) as well as Harley Dragsters. At LBP the block was bored .060 over, crank balanced, etc.Engine was assembled using moderate performance parts. Crane Cam, Crane rockers, solid lifters etc. Stock heads were retained in order to keep the engine accurate, however all areas were deburred and polished to increase performance. Holley carb and other high end bolt ons complete the build.
Transmission is now a 700R4 automatic in order to handle the increased power. Gears are now 4.11 (from 3.73), and all drivetrain components are high quality. (Detroit locker, Yukon, Eaton etc) All 4X4 functions work perfectly.
Truck has been torn down to cab and frame for restore, with new wiring, interior components (dash, door panels etc), and dynomatted to reduce noise.
Bed has been Rhino Lined for durability.
Wheels are 20" Mayhems with 33" Nitto Trail Grappler tires. Almost brand new.
Truck has 5" lift.
I am over $20k into the build of this truck, so whoever purchases this is in good shape. I have all receipts and documentation from the build, which would go to the buyer.
Truck needs a new paint job, and new seals around the vent windows in the front. Other than that, it drives, runs, and hauls as it's supposed to.
Please reach out with any questions. Truck is also for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction should it sell here first.

Edit:I've gotten a few questions about the drivetrain of this truck.
The engine was built specifically for this vehicle. As a result, things like the Cam Timing have been optimized for the truck. It's been advanced 2 degrees in order to give it more low end torque at the expense of top speed.
Additionally, this does not come with the stock transmission. The stock tranny in this was a TH350C. That is a 3 speed with torque converter transmission. In order to handle the power of the redone big block and give it more low end grunt, a 700R4 transmission was built for this truck. That is a 4 speed with torque converter transmission.
Lastly, due to the lift, new driveshafts had to be cut; front and rear. Both are included. This allows for the splines of each driveshaft to 'bite' properly into the transmission and transfer case. Many lifts do not do this, and as a result the weak point in the drivetrain are the shafts. (E.g., shearing or stripping the splines because the don't match up correctly)
Any questions, please ask.
Thanks.
