Frame off restored and new fuel injected GM 5.3 Vortec with 4L60-E transmission. New headers, exhaust, radiator, water pump, power steering, alternator, starter, battery. All new electrical. All interior and exterior lights work well. 4" Skyjacker lift, steering stabalizer, aluminum wheels, and 33" BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. The interior is excellent with newer carpet, seats, headliner, paint. The dashboard is immaculate with no cracks and working gauges. The steering column and steering wheel are both clean. The floor board and under body are clean. The frame looks incredibly clean. It had to have been in a garage most of it's life. The windshield is new and there are no cracks in the glass anywhere on the vehicle. The body is in good condition. New paint. New Pioneer stereo and Kicker sound system that is absolutely incredible! Steel trailer hitch, with working electrical, and custom spare tire cradle with 33" spare. The odometer shows 891 miles since the engine and transmission swap. The harmonic balancer came loose and bent the crankshaft in the old AMC 360 back in 2017. The restoration, mechanical modernization, and all electrical work was done professionally. The electric rear window works and the tailgate is perfectly clean. I don't drive this enough to keep it in my opinion, but I'm not broke and I can't give it away. I saw one like mine, not quite as nice, sell at a live auction in Indianapolis a couple years ago for $17,900. You hardly ever see these out driving around anymore. With everything that's been done on this one, she'll be cruising around for a long time to come! Gabe 765 242 1164
