I just rebuilt the carb. It had several leaks. We'll see how it runs once I go through the ignition system fully.

An unrestored one of these was in Hemmings a few months ago for $1.3 mil. One of 12, the only other complete one.

Thanks, No other mods..installed that is. I have a dana 60 for the front and a 14 bolt for the rear. Just need to go through them and do a regear to 488. Also have a newly rebuilt 427..just sitting on the floor.
To make it worse I am luke warm about the project now as I am looking hard for a early short box 2wd

Yeah, I think the '67-'72 short bed Chevy is one of the best looking trucks of all time. They look great slamed: (not mine)

I'm forever a Ford guy when it comes to trucks, but these are probably the best looking, post-fat-fender trucks ever made.
