Re: Rarest truck

I know mine isn’t THE rarest but I know it’s up there. It seems that early years (67-68) it was less common to have lots of options than in the later years. I have seen around 8-10 first year big block shortbeds online but I haven’t seen another in factory black. I don’t have the time or money for the factory restoration it deserves, but I’m saving up all the hard to find OEM brackets/etc and not modifying anything that can’t be undone later.

[QUOTE=Killer Bee;8685343]cool but not a longhorn as advertised


That's a 255/85/16 with still more than a foot to the cab. Are you sure it's not a Longhorn?

I don't think there was a longhorn stepside. It would be an 8 or 9' box.

a 'Longhorn' is 133" wheelbase, 8.5' fleetside bed w/ wood floor, no factory made steel floor longhorns..

not to say they didn't make the longer 9' steppers, but they aren't 'longhorns'

Rarely do I crap my pants... but if I do it's never desireable.

I'll be! So there are 8' long beds, 8.5' Longhorns (fleetside wood floor only), and 9' stepsides? I guess I forgot that.
