I've been wanting to build one of these for a LONG time. I've had one but the PO booty fabbed the chit out of it, and it was all 1/2 ton frame and running gear... I've been in the search for a long time and ran across this one for the right price with the perfect frame to start with from Blazinzuk(Eric) on here.

So plans are good looking (not show quality) DD with short bed conversion, 35" tires, 2-3" lift, eventually injection or LS, 4L80e, and a custom interior.

Alright, I've had quite a few sqare bodies since I joined this group. As dueling says "I MAY have a car buying problem:whistle:" But I finally have what I've been hunting and shooting for. I picked up this CCSB last night. It needs a lot to be a good wheeler but its the body/frame/ suspension that sold me. Not to mention a little stupidity and inattentiveness. Its got a 350/350/208/10b/10b:doah: drive train. I didnt notice that it was a 1/2 ton driveline till I was half way home. But this...

Alright heres the start of my 88 grand luxe burb rebuild. I'm a pic whore so there will be alot of them. As you can see its a great base to start with. this will be a DD/towrig. Main plans are (in basic order) Repair all fire damage and clean up the engine compartment along the way. Remove the fiberglass runners and fix any rust that has started ANYWHERE I can find it. Then get it all coated n protected cause I'm gonna have this one for a long time. Once I see how she rides I'll decide...

Well, I thought I'd go ahead and start this one but it may take a while between updates. Some how I lost the pics of before it went in the garage. Space is tight so bear with me on pic quality. This is what I've compiled so far.
