Album photo
Description: I bought this 95,000 original mile truck from my next door neighbor. He bought it from his sister when her husband passed away and they had bought it from the original proverbial "little old man" owner. It was bought new at what was Nance Chevrolet in Asheboro, NC so it has lived in Randolph County it's entire life. While she may not have much in the looks department the 250 inline six runs like a champ and the 3 on the tree column shifter works smooth as silk. It drives straight and stops straight and has virtually no slop in the steering. Inside she could use a new steering wheel, definitely a dash pad, and door panels. The seat looks pretty good still and I've fixed the headlight knob, and the wires hanging down from the dash since taking the pictures. The body is decent but there is obviously rust in the fender bottoms, one door bottom and a little on the front of the hood. Nothing I can't handle though! I bought this to knock around in while I restore my '63 "Project MEANlowGREEN" but I plan to fix the rust, well, buy replacement panels and give it a quicky paint job before I take the '63 off the road. I also plan to give her a 4/6 drop with springs & spindles up front and a flip kit & C-notch out back, then I'll probably just through on a set of stock rally wheels like so many of these trucks came with new. I'll also replace the dash pad, door panels and steering wheel but that's about it, it's a basic truck and I wanna keep it that way, although I will most likely end up sticking the 327 from MEANlowGREEN in it once I remove it, that motor only has 14,000 miles since it's rebuild so I may as well use it & I don't intend to keep it in MEANlow', I plan to install a 6.0 Vortec engine in her. One more thing, I have removed the toolbox, gun rack and the decals from the rear glass and pressure washed the mud off of it since taking these photos, these were all taken the day I bought her. I'll add more later :o)
