Picked up the Luv I've been searching for, took me 2 years to find it. Was able to find a 1980 4x4 in bright red with tan leather interior. It's an A/C truck, 4 speed base model. Looks real nice! Body is all sheet metal, not a hint of bondo. It's been repainted sometime in it's life with some good looking pin striping, but the paint is chipping in some areas and there are a few dings near the tail lights where someone had something in the bed and turned a corner and beat up the bed sides....

But other than that I love this truck! It's on it's way to become my daily, just have a slight overheating issue which I'm about to solve with a radiator and fan combo I just picked up off of ebay for 150 bucks (thanks for all the help with size on that). Going to go through the whole cooling system and try to get the bugs out; thermostat, water pump, hoses, the works.

Was looking into and have already planned and priced out a 4.3, nsg370 6 speed, dana300 swap. But after seeing many issues lots of others have had with oil pan and drive shaft interference, not to mention I'm not 100% sure I can clock the t-case away from the torsion bar, I might be putting that project off until I have better funds haha


But thanks for the add, looking forward to talking with you guys and gals.


If you are ever at a car show in KY, look for the LUV

Long shot I know, but I am trying to locate my old LUV truck and it was last known in Cadiz, Kentucky. It is a black chop top step side with a V8 and Chrome Corvette rear end. If anyone sees it or knows of it, PLEASE let me know
