This WAS my 78'. I bought this truck out of a barn in north Louisiana in 07'. had not been cranked since 99', still had a 98' inspection sticker in the windshield. drove it home 200 miles with out a problem. Had the original 4brl 350/350th with 40k original miles. interior was excellent as was the body. had to go through and freshen up all the system due to sitting but didnt do anything out of normal maint type work. HAD to add power steering though. I really hated to sell it.
