Very Strong 350 with Holley intake and Carb, Headers with new gaskets, New chrome valve covers, New ignition, New Breather.
Very little rust on this southern truck. The underside looks better than my garage kept 2007.
Needs dash, 2 rocker panels, 2 door panels, 2 window cranks, windshield washer hoses, Wood replaced in the bed
Original owners manual, and inspection paperwork from June 1976 included.
Truck is listed locally so this listing may be cancelled.
The truck was built in Georgia I believe, and bought and used in NC. The original owners had the truck around 30 years. A Charlotte NC POLICE OFFICER bought the truck and painted the truck and made the intake and carb changes. I believe the motor is original he may have upgraded the cam. The Police officer bought the truck for car shows but sold it due to a divorce. The truck was then bought for a teenager to drive to school from SC.
I replaced the distributor, plugs, wires, thermostat, breather, valve pans, flow neck into the intake,one vaccum line, aluminum header gaskets with wire locks, and the hood. I painted the headers and exhaust.
Undercarriage I would rate a 10.
The body I would rate an 8. I don't believe there's any bondo and all the lines are crisp with no dents but there are runs in the paint and the rubber seals and door handles were painted.
Mechanically the truck is an 8. Everything works great, plent power and the tranny is very smooth. The front bowl keeps a drop of fuel at the weephole and there's a small hesitation when you tromp on the fuel.
The windshield washer hoses need hooked up
The front drivers park light is out.
The driver rear stop lense is broke.
The rockers are rusted through. This is a mystery because the rest is very solid.
The battery tray is bad and the inner fender under the battery is rusted through. You have to look hard to see it.
The dash was cracked to bad so I removed it.
The door panels look bad in my opinion.
The window cranks are missing.
The temp gauge isnt hooked up.
The tires are almost new without any noticeable wear.
There's no wood in the bed which makes it easy to see the great shape of the frame.
The battery is new.
This is a great daily driver and show quality very easily.
Let me know if I've missed anything to help you make a decision.
Also Have a very cool 65 long bed for sale or trade. Please check the listing.
Both trucks are for sale locally so I may cancel the listing. Please contact me if you intend to bid last minute.

Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.

Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.
When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.

When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.
During January's Detroit Auto Show, we managed a longer than expected wandering tag-team interview with C7 Corvette chief engineering exec Tadge Juechter (pictured above), and LT1 engine boss Jordan Lee (pictured below). They are, quite honestly, two of the very nicest bigshot lads to ever walk the engineering corridors of an American manufacturer. Both are enthralled by what they're doing for a day job. So are we.
We've followed the pre-sale anticipation for the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray like an Oreck vacuum yanking every speck of dirt from a well-trampled carpet. Everything is reportable and contains a grain of further knowledge about this dramatically important and cheered-for car, as it continues to be pressured into representing all that is superior about the American dream. The Corvette wears one heavy cloak.
So, most of what was talked about has been expertly reported already right here on Autoblog. But, looking through our notes again, both Jeuchter and Lee added facts to the buzzing mix.
