I have been working on this for 6 years or so.  It is almost complete.

Thank you.  It has a 406 with AFR Eliminator heads, custom ground solid flat tappet cam, Edelbrock NASCAR edition RPM Air Gap, black Holley 770 Street Avenger, and Hooker Super Comp headers.

This is the engine and trans before the black intake.



Here is a picture of the tailgate before I changed the tail lights and installed the wheels.

Nice truck, I really like that style, used to have a 84, I wished I would've not let it be my daily driver back then. 1st hail beat it to hell then rust got & then I let the kids finish it off.

Thanks.  It has been a lot of work.  It has over 30 holes and slots welded up.  It also has 14" Wilwood brakes and a 12 bolt rear end.  I have to do just a little more and it is done.  Then, I have to change the cam, intake, and roller rockers on my Camaro, and upgrade the Tremec TKO 500 to TKO 600 specs and then get started on this.

It was something I wanted to see on these trucks.  We welded in steel front and rear roll pans.  I wired in all LED lights and the Dakota digital gauges.  I took the wiring schematic for the truck and removed every wire that was not needed.  I am going to post some pictures of the stereo system wiring later. All power cables are 2/0 welding lead.  The truck has the vent windows removed and solid glass added.  The rear window is a flush mount kit that looks way better than the sliding glass that was in it.  Here is a pic of some of the work to get the front roll pan in.

Very nice.

I may have put the fenders on that truck (depending on which plant it was built in).

I have had an '87 Scottsdale off and on over the years; you can read about it here if you like:

That was an interesting read.  I chose the 1986 to build because it was the last year for the carburetor engine and the rust proofing was at it's best for these trucks.  I just spent last year in Detroit on a pipe line project.  One site was right by the Flat Rock test site.  Here is a pic of a building down by the river in the Del Rey neighborhood.

I'm afraid I was forced into an '86.  I lost my company car and had already sold my '80 pickup so I needed to act fast.

I did like the fact, though, that it was fuel injected.  It was modern technology (FI, AC, ps/pb) wrapped in vintage sheetmetal.

I'm sorry to hear that...

There are a number of places in the city that I will go but not get out of the car.  That looks like one of them. The old Packard plant is another.
