I saw this truck when I passing through Rock Springs Wyoming on my way back to work from Cheyenne. It turned my head and I thought.... wow... I should try to find a 67-72 short box 4x4 and build my own. I looked for one for over a year but just as I would find one to build, it would get sold. I gave up on it...... THEN..... I saw this truck again... with a for sale sign in the window! I wrote down the number, called, made a deal and bought it. I had the bed professionally spray lined. Had both drive lines completely rebuilt. The rearend rebuilt. New exhaust from the headers, back. New steering wheel. Door windows tinted. New copper header gaskets installed. Rear brakes replaced. Total under carriage scraped, wire brushed and cleaned and then painted ~ actually, the frame, springs etc. I have cleaned and cleaned the under carriage as the guy before me did not take very good care of this truck. It has won several 1st place awards for best 4X4 but there are more and more of these 67-72's showing up with a LOT more money in them than what I have in mine. That is okay, I love the shows more for meeting people and visiting about their rides. Anyway, I have had my truck since 2001 and it is a hoot to drive and see the response.
It has a 350 with double hump heads. Carter BIG 4 carb. Headers, automatic, tilt steering and a factory tach. As for HP, I am not sure but I would guess around 300.
It has power steering and power brakes. Pretty much new in all mechanical respects... well ... within the last 8 years. I only put around 1,000 miles or less on it each year. It only comes out when it is DRY and warm! Then, it is off to some car show or a cruise.
The Carter 4 carb. Headers, dual exhaust, of course. Double hump heads, chrome parts in the engine area. A shift kit on the auto trans, too.
