Here's an awesome truck to consider for your garage. It has a lot going for it, and has covered less than 4k miles since the body-off restoration. It's imposing size and bright green metallic paint make it hard to miss this clean truck. This truck offers a built and detailed 350ci crate engine at the front, a tidy interior with a few tasteful aftermarket components, and that “squarebody” Chevy truck appeal is hard to pass up.
During the process of the recent restoration, the body was re-painted in the original Shamrock Green color. A combination of chrome trim and white pinstripes break up the big green body panels, and a “cowl induction” decal on the hood gives a nod to a classic muscle car. The truck sits a bit higher than the stock ride height thanks to a 4” Skyjacker lift, and a set of 35” Mickey Thompson tires wrapped around 15” chrome deep dish wheels. An aftermarket badgeless grille, exterior cab lights, Rhino-Lined bed, and the cowl hood are other exterior highlights. The paint shows nicely with depth and even gloss, and body panels line up as they should.
The tidy interior is now finished in black, although it left the factory trimmed in green. The interior includes a black bench seat, matching black door panels, column shift, tilt wheel, and 4x4 selector lever. A green metallic painted lower dash portion adds a little color to an otherwise dark interior. Other features of the interior are a grouping of AutoMeter gauges mounted in a custom panel in place of the usual gauge cluster, a sliding rear window, and a JVC stereo mounted on the headliner.
Under the hood is a crate 350ci V8 mated to a TH350 automatic transmission. Engine highlights are a 4 bbl carburetor, MSD Ignition, headers, and chrome valve covers. Warn front axle lockouts work with the 4x4 system to help provide the traction you need in any situation. The underside of the truck is very clean and you can see that the frame and many other supporting suspension pieces have been powder coated in black. Custom exhaust ends in turn down tips just before the rear bumper. Also worth mentioning is that a pair of new gas tanks have also been installed.
