    So, many of the pics that I had posted aren't working anymore. I can't remember what they were

    So, here are some to replace them with:


    new cab mount, etc.


    "refurbished ()" radiator support


    Rally wheels and tires.


    better fenders, instant one-ton!

    So, we did do the rally! And we did make it!

    Here are a couple pics from along the way:


    Staten Island, Day 1.

    damn, your close to the dragon!

    The first year we went we were followed by a truck like that at night. Is it common for the locals to turn off their headlights while following from behind

    No, no real updates..

    It's sitting at my parents house in MA waiting for us to swap in a TBI 350. Hopefully this summer my brother and I can do the swap..... oh, and maybe get some new shocks for it... The ones that are in it are BLOWN.

    In the meantime it's just chilling.

    Found something today that you might be interested in.



    Tach/vac cluster out of a mid 70's C65, it was a gas 366 V8 so the tach is correct for a V8. Also has the mechanical oil pressure gauge and AMP gauge, so it should fit right into your 73.

    it's a 91 I believe, and it has been rebuilt (dunno how long ago).

    The truck has a 3.73 rear end, but we do have overdrive. and we will have true dual exhaust.

    Fuel economy isn't really a big concern

    Depends actually, how old is the 350? My grandmas 94 silv
    erado has a 350 tbi and gets about 23 on highway. Only thing that's been done is a more freely flowing air box and dual exhaust. But then again, the rear end gearing will play a factor.

    My firebird formula 350 got 19 in city and 25 highway, unless of course you drove it like you stole it. But it was also a tuned port inection LT1.


    Sounds like its a fun project none the less. Too bad its at your parents. I'd help turn a wrench here and there.

    I will take that seat! Nice saddle blanket cover on it and I'll be happy
    yeah, startup was an issue for us. We never got the auto-choke set up right so I had to keep my foot on the gas until the engine got to about 150.... and boy would it smoke on startup!!!

    I doubt with the 350 we'll be seeing the 20mpg we're getting out of the 307

    Eric, you have a PM.

    Sell me your Sub seats! I missed the message about the other buckets.
    Hah, we're keeping the suburban seats... They are rather comfortable... But I can hook you up with the old bench seat! The springs are all good, and with the seat cover on it's not a bad seat! (It's at my parents house in MA.)

    we're going with the TBI 350. We already have it! Well, it's sitting in a parts truck up the street... We got it for cheap from the guy I used to work for...win!

    (The truck is currently at my parents house, in MA)
