It had some rough times...
200 year old cedar fell, broke on the peak of the house, and the top rolled down onto the truck. This took a while to repair.. but I had some expert help.
BTW, he's 20 years old now.
Well, after about 30 months in the garage...
We got Big Red back on the road.
Fast forward to 2 years ago.. the fairly healthy 400 fell victim to one too many red-line revs. . .
I grabbed a crate 400 to dump in, since I needed the truck to haul materials to finish a home renovation...
That was a bad idea... Well, not really since I did get the house done. But, that's one anemic V8, and the truck is just about a tug boat now. I'm ready to give the big beast some pep in the step.
I'm planning 532 CID, mild enough to be driven daily.. but still getting up around 1 HP per Cubic Inch.
After 20 years with this truck I figure it's time.
I'll keep you posted.
