85 k5

Temporary build

Overview

So in my dealings I ended up with an 85 k5 that is unsmogable in California but has a clean body/frame.
It already has a 4" lift and 35" tires.
Axles are geared insanely tall at 2.73:1
At this point I sold the engine and used the transmission as a core.
I am going to build my suburban with a bbc and I can use the 89 5.7tbi and 700r4 that is in it now in this k5.
The plan, if I proceed with it, is to make it running, take it to moab and have fun in it then come back here and sell it to help fund the suburban build.
It will get a new tag after a referee checks it and it will be an 89 level smog.

He flew in with his wife spent all day, could not get anywhere, so I offered to take it back. A few years later I...

So as some by now know, it's mine. At first the plan was to use the engine for my sub and selling the body. But now that I have it sitting here, the plan is changing. I am thinking about making it my Wheeler. I got the brakes hooked up so I don't have another accident... When Colby brought it to me, we had this little incident while getting it off the trailer :banghead: So now as it sits where Ryoken`s truck used to.
