Your latest Regular Cab adventure

Post by Bullistik8v92 »

Since we have one of these in the CrewCab section I thought maybe one of them here would be fun too.

Sandford was out working again today, hauled about 50 yards to asphalt grindings to touch up the driveways again. Each load was about 11k on the deck.

Here is my regular cab doing what it has been doing for the last 20-years......slowly returning to the earth.

Excellent idea. I'll have to add to this once I get mine back on the road.

It looks like a pretty solid truck! A little love and it would at least be driveable again.

It is in decent shape and hopefully will make it into my garage later this summer for a complete face lift. I bought it new and parked it when my twin daughters were born because it wouldn't hold enough car seats ( couldn't talk the wife into riding in the back even though I told her I would be a complete gentleman and put the tailgate down when she needed to get in or out) That is when I fixed the 4-door to drive. Now that the kids are 22 it is time to move on. The crew will get sold as soon as I finish my landscaping and then it is time for my old high-school pal to come back to life. I miss the 4-speed and 4X4.

Wife's in general do not seem to be very understanding about these situations for some reason!

It's cool that you've held on it - not many do and let them get away. I have my Dad's 74 4x4. I'm hoping to finish up the restoration before too long. It's been sitting for a LONG time now. When I started the resto originally it was the only truck I had and wanted something I could do everything with and so I started a diesel swap after blasting the frame, etc. Then the diesel pickup thing took off and diesel swaps were the "in" thing and I lost interest because I was afraid people would think I built it only for a magazine article. Stupid reason but it is what it is. Then I started working on again but Dad got sick and passed away and I lost interest again. I really want to get it put back together now. Decided it'll be a basically stock resto just like it was when he parked it except for some warming over. Planning on an Survival or TFS headed 445 or 482 FE for it and either a TKO or GV's.

FINALLY! After 23-years sitting, this thing is coming back to life. My daughters graduated college, got an apartment together and real jobs that don't involve driver-through windows or french fries. Basically I got a huge raise and can afford to start this project. Had some friends over for Superbowl and had our own halftime show pushing this into the garage.

Getting it in the garage is a pretty good step in the right direction! What is the plan for it?

You should start a build thread for it, we could use a little action in the regular cab section!
