Introducing the mid west to east coast hauler

Overview

poorboy.jpg

Ok so the plan. As some of you know, me and a friend have made a couple of trips from here(Colorado springs) to the easy coast with some rust free parts. We've decided to keep going with it as long as there's a demand and money to be made. We've made these runs with whatever we had that ran. A 99 7.3 stroker van, 95 k3500 6.5TD. And a trip this coming oct 2nd with a friends dmax. We came across this truck when removing one of the 12 truck bed we'll be hauling back this trip. As stated above 76 CCLB C30, 454, th400 with a US GEAR overdrive. Truck is in surprisingly good condition. Very complete, and appears to have been well maintained. Interior is virtually flawless with the exception of a couple small cracks on the dash pad. Exterior has a couple small rust spots on the fenders and bed. Must have been sitting for a little while as the dual batteries were dead. With a jump and a splash of gas down the qjet, it was a purring away. Aside from the stale gas, it actually drove pretty good! Small gas leak at the fuel tank switching valve. 90% 10 ply Michelin tires in excellent shape.

So the plan.....
Fix minor issues (gas leak, new front fenders..)
flat bed body
Dual rear wheels
Airbag rear springs
Goose neck hitch
Tool box and transfer tank
6.5TD mechanical injection
Possible 4l80E w over drive unit.
Two tone Gm burnt orange / pearl white paint
Newer Gm bucket seats
Sound system
Lots of sound deadening!
HAUL LOTS OF PARTS!!

While I should have been putting in the extra time on paying customer work to pay down debt or get ahead..... I tell myself I want an RV. I've been camping out of my Express van for about 4 years. It works, but I wanted a little more. SO while cruising craigslist one afternoon, I run across this 1973 Chevy Cheyenne Super 30 with a Chassis mount Mitchell and sons Camper attached. I should have never went and looked at it. I should have told myself, "that's nice" and kept cruising.. But I...

Recently picked these two K30's up. Well and a few others.. 87 454 TBI TH400 NP205 3.73's. Kind of rough. But It'll get better... Slowly. Got it with no bed. Through some Craigslist searching I was able to find some body parts to make it solid again. Found this clean bed about 40 miles south. Came off a retired Air Force truck. No tailgate but those are easy enough to find. I thought I had a pretty nice thing going on until I found this! 86 K30 350 SM465 NP205 4.10's Originally...
Since almost everything happened to be lying around... And I haven't had anything with any sort of go fast power.... I take on another dead end project! Will most likely get everything complete except for paint. Then sold... Chassis: 78 c10 Cab. 85 c10 Front clip 91 sub Bed. 78 C10 step side Engine TBD too many options Trans 94 nv3500 Rear 78 12 bolt 4.10 Wh/tire Cragar 17x9 soft 8's with 275/40/zr17 g force.

I've been asking lots of questions and getting EXCELLENT ANSWERES on here. So, first of all THANK YOU ALL!!!! so here's my 91 when I bought it in october of 09. all stock with the exception of the obvious, a 6" lift and 35's I got it without a trans and put my TCI 700R4 in it and thought everything was going to be peachy... WRONG! After getting the tans in I fired it up and motor was knocking. well that sucked. So it sat until I went back to mass to get my other car and a free motor...
