If I Didnt Have To Think Of My Child I Would Have Kept It — I had a child so I got rid of her due to I had to think family man than hot rod truck. Best truck I have ever owned period. No dodge or Chevy could ever come close to being as beautiful, classic and powerful as this truck. Roded out she sold for $8,800. The parts was expensive due to the engine was chromed out and everything was high performance. Gas is horrible but it was drag ready and street legal.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Classic hot rod, very powerful with a fully built 351c. She had a beautiful paint job sound. Very very fast for a truck.

Cons: Engine parts can get expensive. Did not put strong enough transmissions in the truck( too much engine for a c-4) gas hog from hell

Fun — Its a fun truck to drive. Light body with plenty of horse power. Sports a stock/ rebuilt 302 V* and 3 speed on the column. Taking off fast is limited though due to the lightness of the bed. Its hard to take off fast with out burnin some rubber.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Its a classic. Cant beat it.

Cons: Gas mileage
