Very clean Luv. I'm looking forward on seeing you're progress. Especially curious on what it'll do on some nitrous :twisted:

Can you give me some info on your radiator? IE model #, where to buy etc. I like the way it fits, and I will be needing one for my truck. Thanks, Ron.

believe this is the radiator i got...

theyre hooker manifolds the factory ones would fit but youd have to move brake lines and get some really good bends off of them. I will be swapping to headers once i get rid of the tbars.

I used holley swap oil pan and it fits perfect and sits flush behind the crossmember with no possibilites of ground clearance.

power by ace motor and trans mount

Oh. The further away it is from me, the more it's worth.

It looks like a clean well put together truck. I suck at putting dollar figures on vehicles like these but I bet if you were patient you could get a good chunk for it.

What alternator bracket did you use?? I'm getting ready to put a 5.3 in my 73, and can't seem to find a high mount, alternator only setup. Everything I find has p/s pump, and/or the compressor mounts. Also, the truck manifold didn't have any clearance issues?

Try VS Racing. They have a high mount for an ac compressor.
