    Came of a early 80's Chevy 1-ton.
    It is a Western truck side, cable controlled pump.
    Meyer plow converted with Western ears welded to mount.
    This unit plowed snow last winter. Has everything but the wiring for the lights that are on the truckside. $500.00

    Also I have a 8 1/2 Western conventional V blade.
    It is in great shape for it's age. BLADE ONLY. The A frame looks to have been repaired, but the blade seems to be straight, not much left on the cuttinge edges.
    $300.00

    I am willing to make a plowsite member a deal.....so I will take reasonable offers. My wife is due any day with our son and I need to clean house a bit.....
    These are both used so if you want new stop at a dealership.
    E-mail or PM me for pics. I can e-mail someone pics if they want to post them here for me. snowmatt13@hotmail.com

    Here's Matt's pics. Plow looks to be in nice condition for it's age.

    Thanks B&B for your help....
    That head gear is actually for the Meyer plow with the Western ears welded onto it.
    I'll sell it with the v-plow if someone wants, but i'm not sure how/if that pump will run it....

    i'm not positive on westerns but i know fishers frames were slightly different on a 1ton as opposed to the 1/2 or 3/4 but your set up will prolly work on the blazers and suburbans up until 91 because they kept the 81-87 body style. the 1 ton duallies kept the old style until 91 as well. hope this helps someone out there, good luck with the new baby and congrats :)

    Sorry guys, both are sold.
    The v-plow sold a month ago, and I just sold the other set-up last week.
