It's about time I started a thread for this one, it's been sitting for a while but it's time to start making progress on it again. I think I bought this in '09, I got it in Chattanooga from a member on another forum. I had known about it for a while and always really liked the K5, but he traded it to a buddy, who promptly stripped out the interior and removed all the body trim. He agreed to sell me the Cheyenne quarter panel emblems. Before long, he traded it back to the guy I got it from. We were going to trade wheels, he wanted rallies and I wanted the old hurricane wheels, but before the deal went through he offered to sell me the entire K5 instead. My wife said OK, so we drove the K5 back to Ohio with us. In short, twice I was supposed to end up with a part of this truck, but I ended up with the whole thing. I can't seem to find a pic right after the purchase, but there was no body trim installed and the mis-matched seats and console were the only items in the interior. It also had a bent blue hood and an ill-fitting '76 grill. It wasn't very pretty. After installing the trim and installing an interior from an '82 K5. Door panels and dash pad are from another '77. I also installed another blue hood, but it's not bent. I drove it for a couple months and the recent cam lost a lobe. So I put in another cam taking every cam-install/beak-in precaution known to man and then drove it another 1500 or so miles and that cam lost a couple lobes too, but not before the LF fender got clobbered by a wrecker being driven by an idiot. So I got fed up with it and haven't driven it since. I've just been collecting parts. So here's how it sits today, awaiting some love. And some parts waiting to go in. Also a few other things to be installed. Steering box, 2.5 inch lift, an NP205 t-case and a front gear swap.
