Thanks partner!!! Purchase new grill for the 86, I think!!! and pulled the white coating off of it, that's all! Got the guts from a 73 vette, headman shorties, and a little something from my builder who use to build NASCAR engine's for the top name guys from ALABAMA in the 60's-70's.

thanks JohnC my plans for the truck are to restore it with a little custom things here and there not to much though. Im still in the beggining stages of the truck but im serious about doing it right I ran the vin and found that it was originally a 454 the guy I got it from was a put gas in it and go type of person when i bought it it had no fluids what so ever im suprised the inline 6 is still kickin. the only issue I really have with the truck besides the inline is the radiator support and right side inner fender everything else is actually decent.

That's really weird that it used to have a 454 in it, and they changed it to a 6cyl. Usually it's done in reverse.

my old 75 gmc was that way. It was a short step orderd with a 454 and 3.40 gears. I got it with a 6 cyl from a 69 nova and I put a 350 in it.
