I was basically getting everything done mechanically then planning to do a frame off restore of the body. I just have too many other projects and not enough time or room for this one anymore.
What the truck needs-Brakes don't hold pressure since the power brake conversion. This was where I left off working on the truck.Clutch is starting to slip. The truck drives but it starts to slip after a little while.Needs new front driveshaft- original driveshaft is included, but it is worn out and not the correct length.Driver window has a crack.Carb needs tuned, but truck does run pretty good as is. I had planned to install headers and HEI ignition so I never took the time to tune it perfectly.
