    Would be nice if he would sell as advertised.......

    Of course it needs flares and flaps to make it street legal, but why overlook the obvious?

    Thing does look pretty mean /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Even though it did not state on the auction, I imagine he built the truck with a "Special Construction" permit from the DMV, or swapped VINs.

    In CA, 74 and older don't get smogged. With the special construction permit, I forget the details of determining year, but there's a guy with a '92 Ford Class 8 race truck with a 500HP Leon Patton under the hood, he's is registered as a '65 with the frame.

    Seems like it'd be a little hard to work on... You'd have to reach through the wheel wells to reach the top of the motor /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif.... Maybe if it had some ground clearance to go with all that lift I'd be interested /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crewcab.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crewcab.gif /forums/images/graemlins/crewcab.gif

    Just added on a regular dually bed.
    There is plenty of these running around people build crews all the time to pull big 5th wheel campers after they fry a few tranny's out of 1/tons. There is a 4x4 around me well I guess it would be a 6x6 since it's a dually, that is super nice on about a 95 cab and bed with the tilt front. He brings it by 4x4 shows all the time.

    in the add it is a 2003 silverado,but the truck is a 86 crew cab.so it is too new to not be smogged so it has to have a emissions test every year to be registered in california.

    Negative. It depends what it is registered as. If it's 2003, no it don't. There's like a 5 year grace period for new vehicles. If it's registered as a diesel, no it doesn't have to be smogged. And if it's registered as a pre-74, it doesn't have to be smogged. It all depends on what it is registered as, there are ways to get around the yearly smogged test.

    i didnt know diesels didnt have to be smogged.i never owned a newer car in ca so i didnt know.i think it is only a 3 year grace period but its been a while since i lived there.according to vin it has to match the truck it is in.so he could not legally register it as a pre 74 truck when it is a 84 silverado.im not sure on this but i would think this is how it would work.i was just mainly wondering how it would pass if it had to be tested.but as youy say diesels dont have to be smogged and ive never owned one myself to know.if i lived in cali still i definitely would not want to mess with smogging anything 4x4.just my opinion.

    It's possible. The DMV has a special construction permit program. I'm not going into too much about it and I don't know the whole process, but it's all on the CA DMV website. Basic overview though is someone gets the permit, builds the vehicle and has CHP does an inspection on it and they are the ones if I'm not mistaken give it their blessing and the model year. Like stated above about the Class 8 race truck that is street legal, it would never pass smog, but it is registered as a '65 Ford and has CA plates all legal like.
