Lightbulb Rough new project

So, they’ve cancelled school for the rest of the year, and I have a very bored 15 year old son at home...we’re going to have a shop class this summer...here’s his new 1979 GMC step side pick up... rusty, rough, and a non-running 6 cylinder 3 speed drivetrain.

As found in the pasture



It’s home, lucky for me the farmer wanted to keep the topper...

Re: Rough new project

Nice find. Not nearly as rough as many. Keep us updated.

Picked up a running 1965 230 engine...not banking on ever getting the original freed up, it sat for 13 years or so in a pasture without a valve cover on it...
