A lot of show with plenty of go! Complete frame off restoration nine years in the making. Every nut & bolt was removed & then replaced, mostly with stainless steel hardware. The body is painted with PPG 3 stage Candy Wine Berry. All of the excess holes in the frame were welded closed then sand blasted, smoothed & then painted with PPG basecoat clearcoat high gloss black. The frame,undercarriage & engine compartment is clean enough to eat off of. A newly rebuilt 454 BB pushing 500+ HP, ported & polished heads, Competion Cam, Weiand Action Plus polished water pump, Edelbrock Endureshine RPM Performer intake topped off with an Edelbrock 850 Thunder Series carb. I have over $5,000. invested in the motor alone. A turbo 400 tranny with a shift kit & 2500 Stall with the rebuild. The front clip was replaced with a 89-91 Blazer, with all new sheet metal parts & a steel cowl hood. The door handles along with the fuel tank doors were shaved. The tailgate was smoothed & the handle was relocated to the inside of the bed. Caddy tail lights & a vinyl tonneau cover dresses up the bed. Inside the the bed is lined with a custom Bed Rug. The cab has a lighted moon visor. The interior has custom made vinyl & tweed seat covers, door panels, dash cover & head liner with dark gray carpet . A Dokota Digitol Dash, with Rose Wood inlays, custom steering wheel, an Alpine head unit, Infinity Speakers & amp for great sound. The doors have poppers plus 1 electric & 1 hidden pull cable to let you in. Front & rear wigwags. Sporting an 8" Super Lift Suspension riding on 38" Super Swamper TSL radials with 16.5x14" Micky Thompson aluminum wheels. Both axles & the 205 NP transfercase was rebuilt with all new parts, seals & bearings along with a Detroit locker in the rear plus 456 gears in both ends. Four wheel disk brakes with all new parts, SS brake lines, SS fuel lines and a custom 3" SS exhaust with Flowmaster 44 series mufflers. Jet Hot Ceramic Coated Hooker Headers. All the bushings, springeyes, shock bushing & body mounts was replaced with Energy Suspension Polyurethane. I went with the multicolor undercarrige for showing the truck. I completed the restoration in late 2006 & the truck has won many awards & trophies included two First place trophies for best suspension & best engine compartment at its first 4Wheel Jamboree National in 2007. This truck is definetly a show winner. I have always trailered the truck to car shows except for the local ones. It has rarily seen rain and is always stored in a garage. You will not find any rust on this truck. The truck appraised at $35,000.00. One of the things that makes this truck stand out from the rest is the cool, Caddy tail lights and smoothed tailgate. A must see to appreciate. To make the truck legal with the state of Missouri, it was inspected and a new vin tag installed, because of the new motor and 1986 cab replacement. Will consider trades. Thank you.
