Well, I've had this truck for about 3 years and I haven't had a lot of opportunity to work on it until about a year ago. I had a build thread for it but all the pics are dead so I thought I'd start fresh. I have a lot of parts collected for it and now its crunch time. The goal is to get the truck running by February and then completed for a show at the end of March. I don't have to worry about cold temps because... well, we don't have cold temps in Phoenix!
A little background on the truck. Its a 1981 and came with a 1.7L 8v gas motor with an automatic trans. When I bought it in Sacramento, it had a bench seat from a '64 bug and already had been converted to rounds. Lets get on with the pics.
