New Project Truck

Here are some pictures of the truck I just bought, the weather hasnt been cooperating for me to get it home yet, I will get more pictures when I do.

A little backstory on this one, as far as I can tell the last time the truck was running was in 2003, I have known about it since 2006 I think, not real sure when I first went and looked it over. Found out about it from the person I bought the 79 K100C off of.

Vitals are as follows, its either a 82 or 83 K100C, 3406A, RTO12515, rockwell rears on a reyco spring ride, and 10 aluminum wheels. Im going to have to wait till I get the title in hand to get the VIN, then I will get the line sheet from KW.

Yeah its not bad for sitting out in the weather, Im sure if it had been more obvious of where it was sitting it would have been gone a while ago. I was glad to not see it go for scrap.

I will leave those for you guys that actually use them, if I find one as cheap as I keep finding these cabovers I might buy one.

Oh and dont worry, even though I bought another one, one of mine will be getting put out of its misery when it dries out.

Oh Im used to it now, this is the fourth cabover I have bought. Thankfully I have a jack that is in really good shape that will be coming off my GMC.

The one I have had the least trouble with is the one on my 352, it very rarely gives me any trouble. I figure I will be rplaceing a few lines if anything, nothing major, and if something does go haywire at least I can find parts for this one.
