Max cooling system w/ 4 row radiator. Heavy Duty suspension with 1 ton rear axle and springs with original coil-over shocks on all 4 corners. Power steering, power disc brakes with 13x4 rear drums and original electric trailer brake controller. Factory air conditioning with clear glass. Original GM AM radio (not installed but included) and Johnson 2-way telephone system with fiberglass antennae. Dual 15 gallon tanks with switch on dash. Custom heavy duty steel brush guard, bed guards, spare tire carrier, headache rack and toolbox installed when new. Custom steel goose-neck hitch plate and connector, installed in bed when new, can be unbolted if needed. Fey chrome step bumper added in place of original custom drop unit.

Runs strong, drives nicely and has tons of low to mid range power for towing/hauling. Very dependable. Would make a great shop truck, ranch truck, tow vehicle or for advertising. This truck is a very original central Texas, rust free survivor, that is still in good overall condition considering it's age, having been well cared for over the years. Body has some dents and dings with some creasing on the passenger bedside from ranch use. Driver's door has some evidence of previous repair around mirror mounts. Bed floor has some small dents near tailgate from use. Vinyl interior is decent but could use some refurbishing to dash pad and door panels. Original owner purchased the truck for use on his cattle ranch (hill county) and shortly thereafter parked it in a shed due to health issues. The truck was driven very little during this time. I purchased from his estate after his passing in 1998. Odometer at that time showed approx 56k. I proceeded to refurbish the truck with engine upgrades (see below), new radiator and exhaust system, new tires and repair or replace all other serviceable items. Everything works well on the truck with the exception of the Air Conditioner. Original R-12 AC compressor may need to have seals replaced or replace compressor. Hoses are new. Odometer now shows approx. 89k, however total accurate mileage cannot be guaranteed. Clear Texas title. Drive anywhere.
Engine Upgrades when rebuilt (approx 33k miles ago):
  • Blueprinted block, balanced rotating assembly
  • Polished steel heads with new guides, springs, Manley servere duty valves
  • KB flat top pistons, +30 @ around 9.0:1 compression
  • Comp Cams energizer 260 RV cam w/button
  • Comp Cams double roller timing chain
  • Comp Cams roller tip rockers
  • Polished orignal crankshaft, all new internal components
  • Edelbrock performer 2.0 dual plane aluminum intake manifold
  • Edelbrock performer 1910, 850 cfm quadrajet carburetor (rare)
  • MSD coil, Carter HP mechanical fuel pump, new water pump, starter, etc.
