possible new truck...opinions please

Recommended Posts

It is a 1983 chevy truck. it has 1/2 ton rockwell axels, 350 goodwrench motor, and a th350 transmission. runs good and everything and no mechanical issues to the best of my knowledge. It has a lot of dents everywhere though little to no rust on it. Also it has a 4 inch lift. could eventually use new tires but they still get around decent. my computer is being weird but i should be able to get up some pics fairly soon.

Wait for GD to chime in, he's been driving an old chev for a while and can tell you the good, the bad and the ugly with those.

 

The 350/350 combo is pretty solid, and if you've got the better axles the weak link is already fixed.

yes im not sure what kind of carb it has in it yet. does anybody know much about the gm goodwrench motor? from what ive heard its a fairly bone stock crate motor but is still pretty reliable. the motor has about 20,000 miles on it from waht the guy said.

I just put a GM Goodwrench basic crate in my '72 Chevy last year. it's got a 3 year/100k mile warranty.... should be plenty reliable...

 

sure it's not just a Rockwell transfer case (normally with a MT) ... with GM corp axles? (6 lug)

 

or does it have the 2.5 ton Rockwell axles (8 lug or BIG 6 lug)
