    I picked up a red 76 and hope to get things going soon. My first car in high school was a red 81 long bed so I thought it would be cool to relive my youth with this project!

    The truck is weaping fluid from just about every gasket but the engine seems to be running strong. It needs new clutch master/slave, brake master, carb cleanup, and some wiring love.
    Interior is in good shape besides the seats and dash.
    Exterior needs a new hood and quarter panels but overall is in good shape.
    I appreciate all the info on the site and look forward to getting things rolling!

    In California! Thanks for giving a heads up though. I have found a truck in great shape but he wants wayyyy too much for what it is.
