I disappeared from this forum when things started going better for my project. It took me about 2 years to build this myself, and I had lots of issues that I solved with the help of the great people here! Life has changed so much for me in last few months I’d like to get opinions on how much this is worth AS IS with the patina. It IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL BUILD. But it is the original paint/rust on the exterior. I did paint the inside and swap the steering wheel because the inside was toast from sitting in the woods for years. And to me it has character, maybe not to others. Hit me with opinions.
GM CRATE 350 4 bolt vortec heads
212/222 cam hydro lifters
Edel Air gap RPM intake
Edel AVS2 carb added just last week not pictured
Longtube ceramic coated headers
serpentine belt setup w power steering
Lockup Wired to vacuum switch
Fuel tank moved to underneath bed.
Truck runs and drives great has a lot of power, no weird noises, doesnt leak or burn oil. Trans shifts smooth, slightly firm. Lockup works great. Full disclosure I did have to take the intake and some of valve train apart due to water getting in the tank early in the tuning process or possibly during the install process which I did outside with the hood off.
The body is straight, there are some rust holes in one cab corner and one fender, slightly bent grille and fender. Fogged windshield, seat tore up with a cover on it. Body 6/10 interior 5/10 engine and trans 9/10. But I’ve kept it like it is because everyone seems to love the patina on this truck. I plan to clear coat or floor polish the entire truck in the spring and may offer it up. Opinions on pricing?
