    whats up grease heads!
    been procrastinating on posting this..
    way back some 13-14 yrs ago i came upon this for free, no engine or trans.
    i put a olds rocket 350 i had in it, and did some deals for other stuff.
    the owner, which is a brother, gave it to his son,
    brother/owner of said truck is the one that helped me on the body work of the LeMans project.
    so on to the next round for this thing for his son.
    pulling the old garbage, and putting in a 7.3 i robbed from my M37.
    bought a 2wd trans and getting things done.
    about to start the painting.

    This is awesome! Watching some of your other threads, I know you do some great work and can't wait to see this build progress.
    I've got a 72 travel all 1010 I'd love to convert from the tired 345. Will be watching this one closely!
    Cheers!

    thats just too easy of a fit, you might need something bigger? love the truck !

    I've been watching for an old IH pickup to put a powerstroke into and build a drag truck. but there are none left here at all. missed out on an abandoned project last winter.
