so i havent had time to post up my build but here is my build. the truck is a 79 mikado. got it on trade for my old 78 corolla rally car. my plans for the truck are to make a nice reliable street/strip truck. i started by pulling the stock 4cylinder and have been building a 383 stroker, wieand single plane intake, edelbrock 750cfm carb, 305 heads port and polished to 350 valve size, holley super comp headers. i have the motor almost done i just picked up a saginaw 5speed out of a 91 camaro. the backend of the truck is lowered 4 inches on blocks, front end is dropped 3.5" with the torsion bars but i plan on converting to a coilover setup. the body is currently primered black and i am getting ready to spray it in my paint booth a gloss black with a green clearcoat. the tailgate i frenched the license plate into. the front bumper i made a solid piece filled all the holes and also added a 3" lip the hood is a cowl induction hood that im not quite finished with, the interior isnt even started yet, i have 2 racing seats with 4 point harnesses that are going into it. the whole interior is stripped and the floor is rhinolined as well as the bed. here are a few pics. i do all the work myself by the way. i have a degree in welding and fabricating.
