    Cleaning out some stuff that hasn't been used the last couple of years.

    I have a 1979 Chevy 3/4 4x4 short wheelbase truck with a Western 7'6" plow. It has a 400 small block V-8 and is decent. It needs some TLC here and there, but everything works. It has a wooden flatbed and decent body. The body was redone but they never replaced all the body mounts. Rocker panels, cab corners, doors, fenders, hood were new, and not rusted (maybe a few spots here and there but no holes) and painted white several years ago. Still looks decent. Seat, door panels and dashboard cover have seen better years. Fairly new carburator. Does have an exhaust leak. Probably leaks some fluids, but haven't been under it recently to look. $2200 or best offer. I would not recommend driving it far as it has not been on the road for a couple years. It probably needs the brakes bled, but if I get the time I will do this.

    I also have a Meyer 7'6" complete setup for a 73-87 Chevy/GMC. Pump, lights, controller, and I think I have the wiring harness. It is the fixed mount that stays on the truck. Has an E-47 pump with another pump disassembled for spare parts. These pumps are bringing $400 on ebay alone. The blade is fair to midland. Has a few rust spots which would be easily fixed. Could use some paint. $800.

    I have the framework and hopper assembly from a SnowEx receiver mount salt spreader. The motor junked on us, and we couldn't get it apart without destroying it. However, if you backed yours into a pole, the metal framework and plastic hopper are great. $150 or best offer.

    I can e-mail pics of any of these if interested. Don't ask me to post them on here. I am much better at property maintenance than navigating on a computer. Just send me your e-mail address. Thanks, Phil

    73-87 fixed mount

    Could you send me pictures of the fixed mount? I'd like to see how it mounts to the frame of the pickup.

    Thanks

    The truck is now listed on ebay. User name is hickslawns. I set the reserve much lower than my price for sale on here. I want it gone. Next to be listed will be the plow and spreader framework/hopper. Let me know if you have any questions or want pics. Thanks
