Thanks all for the welcome.

This is going to be a fun project and forum. I can feel it in my bolts! To be honest I almost bought an exact duplicate of her with a new 350 crate in it for the same money, but the interior was worse and the paint was roasted. I love the color combo as well and oddly enough, it had those very bedrails! Still, I waited for the right one and luckily brought a stack of digital cash.

I've been going over the RPO codes and ciphering out some things, and as far as I can tell she's bone stock except the muffler and Kenwood head unit which luckily was knob style so the dash is intact! I have to say I prefer the Dumbo mirrors for daily use but these are factory. Beyond a factory resto to the interior (bench excluded) and a retro radio w/under seat sub, it'll be bolt ons/ins. If I want it back to stock I always have the option and a fresh interior ;). It is tough to think of changing it too much because it looks really appropriate and period correct, but I'm not in the preservation business so.... To my fellow enthusiasts I say

You're the inspiration
When you love square body 'til the end of time
When you love square body
Always on my mind
No one needs you more than I
When you love square body 'til the end of time
When you love square body
Always on my mind
I need you

Aye, that's a beauty! Shame it caused you heartache getting it switched, but you got it done. I'm always nervous when I go into those offices... like I'm going to hold up a bank or something. Weird.
Welcome, from Edgewood!

Great intro. Not too far away, just relocated to north Idaho (Coeur D'Alene) from the socialist republic of Oregon, we were just across the river from Longview. Oregon is very kind to old trucks, only rusty one I had there came from 30 years on the beach.
