I purchased the truck from my father in law in 05,It had a body restoration in the late 90's but is beginning to show wear. This is not a show truck but is in good condition for a 76 model. The body has rust showing in the passenger door, rocker and inner fender as well as the driver bed behind the wheel and on the front of the hood. The rest of the truck and the frame are in solid condition. I replaced the engine with a fuel injected 350 from a 90 model chevy truck with about 140,000 miles on it. I have only drove the truck 2 times since the motor replacement and it runs good. My plan was to get the 350 running and then pull it and build a 383 stroker so I have not spent a lot of time driving the truck with this motor. I have completely lost interest in the truck and want to sell to finish another project.
Thing that have been replace with the engine swap are new tbi wiring harness from speedway motors , new distributor ,coil ,plugs, wires, knock sensor, coolant temp sensor, iac valve, thermostat, ceramic coated headers, O2 sensor, electric fuel pump, fuel lines, fuel filters, oil pressure switch, transmission cable. Things that still need done are the transmission cable still needs some adjustment, the throttle body was rebuilt but I think it could use two new injectors. I was going to have a new chip burnt for the ECM but was wanting to wait on the 383 swap. The truck does run and drive I just haven't because of the big future plans.
Things that have been done since 2006
Dana 70 rear with 4:88 gears and a locker. New seals, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, brake lines.
GM 10 bolt front with new 4:88 gears, seals, bearings, hubs, rotors, calipers, brake pads, backing plates, ball joints, tie rod ends and lockout hubs.

Other things are a line lock on the front brakes that is currently not wired up, Proform tac, Pionner cd player, ECM and fusses for motor are located in the glove box. The bed is rhino lined. I also have two good doors off of another truck to go with it if you want them. Cab bushings have been replaced with poly bushings. The gas tank has also been replaced.
The bad is the dash has one crack in it, the stitching in the seat is starting to separate in the middle, the rust spots that was mentioned above and the paint is faded and getting in poor condition. The motor may also need some tunning and tweaking.
