1978 K30 SRW

  • I don't normally post build threads but I figured the cool factor on this truck others would appreciate. So I've watched this truck on market place for 9 months or more and finally went and looked at it last weekend. Body is rough. Story if the guy I got it from is the 2nd owner and bought it in about 1980. Its a 1978 Chevy Silverado K30, swapped in 454 from an 80 2wd, factory 4.56 gears, gov lock, factory tach, factory delay wipers, key buzzer..doesn't work, Hickey Grille guard/brushguard, side winder winch...still works!. Originally a 2-tone brown with tan in the middle. Gutted years of wiring upgrades for accessories, cleaned the interior out of the nasty, removed the brush guard from the grille guard.

    Plans are:
    Superlift 4" lift
    35x10-16 swamper SX II or Q78-16 TSL Swampers
    Stock white wheels if I can find K30 front caps
    New exhaust
    Fix exhaust leaks at manifolds
    Belts and fluids
    Add roof and tailgate lights.

    Need a pair of K30 caps and a silverado 30 emblem if anyone has any.
