this is my new project. just got it on a trade. only had $700 in the truck i traded for it. so i guess i did pretty good. it has a 468 bbc with a th400 mated to a np208. corp.10 bolt front and a 14 bolt ff rear. supposed to have 4:56 gears in it. havent pulled covers to verify. it had 25% tread tsl's on it when i got it. i put the wheels and tires on it from another truck i traded off.  so now it has 90% tread tsl's. gonna be along rode but it will be fun.

well i got it on a deal and the guy told me the motor just started smoking cause his son put to much oil in it. lol... but i've been around mud trucks way to long to think that was the only problem. when i popped the hood and seen how covered everything was in mud, i knew exactly what happend. someone bonzaied a mud hole bout 30 miles an hour and got muddy water in the motor and killed the rings. lol... so i am gonna just pull it and replace it with a sbc. plus i like alot of rpms when i go riding. and i aint got the money to put in the big block to make it stay together for that long. and i know the sbc will hold them. it has done it before.
