    Thanks for the kind words...

    This beast is definitely retro - it has a Buick 350, which was a factory option apparently. After '72, these all had AMC engines such as a 360. This truck has a 4-speed T-18 transmission with a granny low first gear (6.32:1 !). Four wheel drive low range in 1st gear is s - l - o - w ! For axles, it has a closed knuckle Dana-44 up front, and a semi-floater Dana-60 in the back. The plow is in good shape. I overhauled all the electrical connections, everything is clean bright and tight with conductive paste in the right places. I think I'm ready for winter. I've got three cords of firewood split, and a new plow truck. This means we'll have a very mild winter, doesn't it!

    Best regards,

    Ray
