So for those that didn't read in the brothel, and was in the right place at the right time and picked up a 1978 1 ton chevy dually dump truck with western plow. I was looking at snow blowers and an older gentleman overheard my talking to the sale clerk. He started saying he had a old chevy dump truck and plow, though it wont start at temps below 30deg. He told me he just wanted it out of the yard since he bought a lawn tractor with snow blower. Price was beyond right at $50. I texted him my info and figured I wouldn't hear back from him ever again. Week goes by and he texts me a pick - from what I could see it looked pretty sharp, again for the price especially. He said there was snow in the way would have to wait till spring. Lucky for me we've had rain and 40deg temps for a week, and he then texts saying he got it running and come pick it up. Again thinking too good to be true, I show up to buy the truck. Look it over, and deal was done. lol - I gave him $60, signed title over, and away I went - drove the truck home. What we got: 1978 chevy 1 ton chassis cab designation. Was suppose to have 400, but somewhere along the way it was swapped to a 350. Starts quick and sounds great - at warm idle almost sounds to have a different cam in it. The owner I bought it from put dual batteries in truck, and a few other interesting farmer engineered items. 350/TH400/203 setup Assuming 4.10 gears Quick list of known items: Passenger rear lights not working (no brake, tail lights, or directional) Front passenger directional don't flash Rockers gone Cab corners - not horrible Doors rotted - usable for now Dash shot Mouse next was made in heater - lovely smell. Have yet to play with dump bed - previous owner didn't use it. Appears to be electric drive hydraulic setup. PLus dump bed sides are rotted - might be able to salvage and weld new patches in. Front springs ill - one is almost on bumpstop already Gas filler neck / brackets rusted PLans are to either down the road replace cab - might just patch some items for now. Want to get it on the road this summer for my landscaping mega project at home. Clean up engine compartment, obviously some wiring to sort out, and probably replace some front end parts. Drives pretty good on the road, little wandering, brakes seem great (which I was surprised). Pics to follow this weekend.
