    I'm guessing the truck transmission might have a heavier clutch pack then a car turbo 350.
    I know all my big inch 73-77 cars had turbo 400 trans because of their weight.

    Just purchased it.
    On a flatbed to Ohio in a few days.
    I'll have more pics in a few weeks.
    I'm am otr truck driver and get home about once per month.
    Scheduling a pickup and delivery while I'm home is quite a ordeal.

    That's a reasonable question after getting a barely lucid lecture on posting on topic.

    One owner truck on its long journey back to Ohio.
    I have to wait a month to actually inspect the truck in person.
    The more I look at the truck..the more I want to just leave it stock and drive it.
