    Flush
    Cooling fan clutch
    Thermostat

    Rear fuel pump
    Front fuel pump
    Fuel selector valve

    Fuel pump relay
    Fuel pressure regulator

    The cons:

    Cracked dash pad
    Cruise control cable is disconnected
    Was originally a red with white two tone truck, was repainted metallic blue pretty poorly. The roof top is still patina’d
    Door windows work but could use new felt to remove wind noise.

    This is a fly in and drive home vehicle.

    How many spark plugs? How big are the cylinders? How many wheels drive? How much is the truck?

    Straight looking truck.

    Wow; I left a lot out:

    302 ci V/8 with multiport fuel injection
    4speed overdrive automatic trans (AOD)
    8.8 rear with 3:55 open differential
    ~80,000mi which I believe is the first time around
    2wd
    Truck has working A/C
    P/S
    P/B
    Dual 19 gallon fuel tanks (both work)
    Delay wipers
    Tilt wheel
    Cruise control - not connected
    C/D - AM FM receiver
    400W amp- kenwood
    10” subbix Rockford fosgate

    Drives very well and would make a great bike hauler.

    Here is an as-found picture before the truck was bought and pulled home in August. I repaired everything right without shortcuts because I intended on having my teamager drive the truck.
