Truck been parked for fifteen years.
Sitting in the woods was not kind to it.

After cutting my way to it and cleaning off the leaves, branches, acorns, etc.
I was able to free up the accelerator, and Clutch pedals, Get gas flowing, and
Clean and re-gap the points it fired up.
Clutch is stuck to flywheel, added brake fluid and got a pedal, but need to bleed more.
Hope to get it out and on the trailer for home.

Original 327 V8 4 speed and two speed rear.
Engine has been replaced with a GM Goodwrench 350HD

Thanks

Hope to get it moving.

The plan is to get it cleaned up and mechanically sound again,
Then not sure what to do with it, I don't really need it.

Engine has around 15,xxx miles on it.

I bought this truck from the original owner in 1978 worked it through the 90's
Installed the Goodwrench engine then it got away from me and was parked

I got it back in this condition.

Scuff it up and give her a layer of Clear Coat. Patina is nice.

I would block the clutch pedal down,even if you have to block it at the bellhousing, it might come loose by it self.
