Well, finally today I said "F-it". Made time out of my schedule to go and pick up my dually that should have been home months ago now. 1989 Chevrolet Crewcab dually 2wd, 350 TBI, 4 spd standard 4.11 gears and 167,000km Truck was originally bought by CP Rail and used by an elderly man who was a forman at the time and just used it as a run around truck and so forth. Baby'd it from what I am told. It then was purchased by a local potatoe farming company and fitted with a service deck. It spent the rest of ít's life running to the field, and a bit of hiway usage, hence the original body condition/panels. Was originally an orange color (cp rail), but got a fresh coat of white when it was last purchased. Know the guys that did the servicing on it regularly and was well taken car of...or as well as a work truck can be anyways. Got a new long block 2 years ago, and dropped a gear out of the original 5 spd. A donor truck they had in the yard gave up the 4 spd currently in it. Will be changed back but for now it's all good. My buddy had given me a heads up that they were retiring it around a year or so ago now...maybe longer. So I said I was interested, and 2 months ago he called me up asking if I still wanted it....."hell yeah" I said, "how much". Informed me that his boss told him to offer it to me for $1200.00 cash...............needless to say, as of today she is at her new permanant home. as well I made time during my trip home to stop in at a buddies place in which I had spoken for a dash he had not used in one of his projects from the past. Steel dash and gauges from a 1959 Impala. I'm thinking I found just the place for this!!........muahahahaha!! Future plans at this point.....though will change I'm sure of it. -frame rails shortened 14" -short box fleetside box installed -dually fender reinstalled on short box -make a short stack out of the rear spring pack -axle flip -drop spindles -59 Impala steel dash (plus metal work) -91 GMC Jimmy grill/headlights etc (already found) -NV4500 transmission swap -2001 Chrysler Concorde leather heated memory buckets front and rear -sheet metal work interior/console etc. -custom stereo ...I think that might be a good start...hahahaha.
