So here is a little background info. Of course I wasn't even looking for another toy. I have too many vehicles as it is especially after I picked up my brother's 1954 Chevy five window pick up truck but I got a link from Tony (damn you Tony, j/k) so I thought I'd give the guy a buzz. I had jury duty yesterday and was let go in the afternoon so thought I'd drive over. Had some cash in my pocket and thought I'd take a look for sh-ts and giggles. I talked to the owner, went out for a drive on it on the freeway, looked it over and made a deal. Got a schmoking deal on it.
351W engine swap, originally a 302 in it (that's the owner claims, I'm sure the vin will shed some light on that).
C6, just rebuilt earlier in the year, owner supplied a stack full of receipts and the rebuilt tranny receipt was included
Cut and Turn beams, look like they are stock width but it has a truss on the front
9" rear end
2.5 14" Bilstein coil overs with shock towers (no engine cage tie)
Beard seats, 2 low back seats
6 35" tires, 4 BFG with 85+% tread and 2 Procomp tires near new
Headers, appear to be JBAs but not sure
Stock radius arms
Vehicle spent a couple of years in Seattle so hood and roof have surface rust
Windshield has a crack on passenger side
small leak coming from the valve covers, maybe just a gasket is all it needs
Driver window motor is not working, easy fix
And finally the truck just needs a good cleaning.
Here is some more info I got on the truck. Apparently it was built by a fabricator/racer (name escapes me right now) who raced a Class 8 truck. Previous owner wanted to build a prerunner and started working on this bronco. Got as far as he did and then decided to sell it. The owner I bought it from owned it since 2002 and said he has put less then 20k miles on it as he has two other vehicles and just never really had a chance to drive it.
Slap on my Solo Motorsports radius arms
Mount my Autofab fenders and hood
Pick up some 2.5 smoothies for the rear and maybe slap on my Deavers.
And call it a day.
