    That thing is badass!!!

    I love that truck!!...I know a guy who bought one very similar to that one from a fire department near my old hometown!--A 1963 GMC Suburban 4x4--had a 4 spd manual tranny,chrome grill and bumpers,NO side windows(a panel truck!!) and it had a 305 V-6 in it--with 18,500 ORIGINAL miles~--he bought it at a "surplus" auction,only paid 1500 bucks for it!..:eek1: ..I'd have paid TWICE that for it in a heartbeat!--it had a PTO worm gear winch on it too,mounted under the front bumper..truck looks like new,all he did was wax it,and do minor cosmetic work to it..I was very jealous!!:(


    That truck looks sweet with cab marker lights and big tires...and it has the V-6 emblems on it,so its probably a 305 or 351 V-6,same motors they put in many school busses and C-60 trucks!..they are one of GM's best medium duty truck motors....those old rockwell transfer cases had straighter cut gears than later ones did,and they have a cool whine sound like a blower!..


    SIGH...wish they would bring THAT body style back again,and use upgraded drivetrain and engines...I'd buy one!:crazy:

    Good eye on the front axle. Its a HP dana 44 from a 1979 F250, and it has the matching D60 rear, both with 4.10's. The engine (the original was the V-6) is a badass caddy 500 :bow: (cam and lots o-head work) mated to a 700R4 and drivers drop 241.

    He's scrambling to finish it up for the Montana 4x4 Divide Ride next week. I'll be towing it to an exhaust shop for exhaust tomorrow.

    BTW, its a 1965 sitting on a shortened 1976 longbed chevy truck frame. All custom body mounts. Another cool thing, its not much longer than my K5, but seems to have infinitely more interior room. The departure angle is not as good, but the overall looks are just killer. Definitely a beautiful body style. It hasn't been on the road in the past couple of years, but all of the mechanicals are rebuilt (engine, trans, axles, etc).



    I can't wait to see it moving!
