Nice. I hope your not planning on shortening it and slamming it to the ground.

Today I got the electrical system checked out and most was good but will still need to troubleshoot the radio and the back up lights. I poured some gas in the carb and it fired instantly. Rebuilt the carb and did some tuning/adjusting on a remote tank. Will have to pull the cab tank and flush it all or replace. Power steering, brakes and trans work as they should but the PS pump will need replaced(wobbles). A/C pump is locked up. I found a bunch of receipts in the glove box (which is like new) for the tires that are on it. They are bias, show very little wear/weather checking and installed in June of 1988. According to other receipts and odometer, only 1200 miles since 1991. I plan to do the needed repairs and drive as is. It is amazingly stock.

I drove a 70' GMC Camper Special through High School, it had a 350 not the 402 as yours. Loved that truck, LWB made for a better ride and it would haul anything. My Dad put West Coast mirrors on it with twin whips.
