This is a great truck to cruise or drive daily. Cranks up every time. Will need new tires for daily highway driving. I drive it around the neighborhood and some longer distances within town. Here are the details:
ENGINE: Runs great, no issues. Dual Exhaust. Some seeping at front main seal. EGR Block-Off. 2BBL Rochester. 333882 Head Casting with E9 75 Date Code= Hardened Seats, '71-'76 350/400. 3970014 Block Casting = 350 V8 '70-'76. T0513CMJ Engine Code= Tonawanda May 13th. Not sure of year...but most likely 1975.
TRANSMISSION: 3 Speed Saginaw. Trans Code S8M24= Saginaw, 1968, August 24th. Vin Stamp on pad 18N3181= 1968 Camaro. Shifts fine, Clutch is good. New clutch master and slave cylinder and slave line. Some seeping at front main seal?
REAR AXLE: Not sure on date codes and such, could not find codes, I might try more and see if I can find them, but no funny noises, performs great. I suspect the gear is low, as the truck has ALOT of pickup off the line and accelerates QUICKLY!
INTERIOR: Awesome quilted style. Headliner good. Seat has some wear on driver side of course.
ELECTRICAL: EVERYTHING WORKING. I have not wired up the horn, the horn and wiring is there as well as an aftermarket button. Went through all wiring sanding and making better connections. Converted to One Wire Alternator. The fuel gauge works but the needle has fallen out. Low beam out on one headlight. High beams work fine.
CHASSIS: New front brake system (shoes, wheel cylinders, brake lines and master cylinder). Suspension performs fine. Bushings in upper a-arm on passenger front could stand to be replaced. TIRES are 235/60-15 Front and 275/60-15 rear. They hold air but would need to be replaced if you want to do extended highway driving. I drive it around town with no problems. Front passenger tire has irregular wear and will need to be replaced sooner than later.
BODY: ZERO BONDO except driver rear fender behind wheel at bottom. It does have rust from over the years but no major damage/dents(SEE PHOTOS). Doors, Hood, Tailgate all work great. Bed solid but will need a wood kit. Cab corners actually good. Paint will clean up even better if desired.
Buyer is responsible for shipping, pickup, etc... I can be here to assist in loading.
OK, here is the stuff I have to state for the brilliance of the world:
IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 100 FEEDBACK, YOU MUST CONTACT ME BEFORE BIDDING, IF NOT, YOUR BID WILL BE CANCELED, NO EXCEPTIONS!!
PAYMENT IS DUE WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION END. TRUCK MUST BE PICKED UP WITHIN 14 DAYS OF AUCTION END. A STORAGE FEE OF $25/DAY WILL BE APPLIED THEREAFTER.
THANKS AND GOOD LUCK!!
