    Death Proof

    Won't be any building probably till springish, but figured i'd post up. Honestly, got it for free. First, gonna put that 8274 on my heep.
    So, 74 j10 with a V8 360 and i think th400 and a who knows what, quadrawack somethinerother. Quick peak looks like 44's front and rear with a passenger drop and drums all around. Thinkin 60/14 with discs, 4.56's and 35's or 37's. Should be able to spring over the front, clock the C's and do up some blocks in the rear (factory spring over). The driver and passenger floors need some love, need to build front corner panels and the rear bed is toast. Gonna build a freshy. But.....frame is solid, all the glass/cab/roof is good (minus a door), hoods mint, tail gate is decent and the motor looks to have newish plugs/wires/distributor/hoses/valve covers/rad/a bunch of electrical/etc......but you never know. Tranny fluid looks decent but engine oil smells pretty gassy? Worst case...rebuild. Plans are a flat black/dark grey look and gonna do up some new bumpers. So hopefully incoming tow rig/backup wheeler/winter beater build. And of course...Budget! See if i can't get a mean little machine together for a round a grand. Here's a few beater pics i got. Picked up and tucked away in a barn for now.

    Thanks guys. I'm kind of leaning towards keeping the drivetrain for now and trim to fit for some 33's, that's if i can find a cheap way to lose the drums. Hell, it even has a matching spare steelie. lol. Would love to come across a better condition box but that's probably a needle in a haystack. Looks like doors and front fenders where the same on all jtruck/cherokee/waggy's of that vintage so might get lucky there. Also a gladiator grill would be nice and a junkyard pimptastic bench seat of some form. Or do i lower it and go ratrod styles. muhahaha

    Love the J10s. Friend sold his and that's a huge regret on my part for not buying it!

    I feel like I saw this one on Kijiji, is that possible?

    I look forward to a build thread and lots of pics no doubt.

    I'm jealous. I love those old trucks.

    BTW, i'm just gonna take a shot in the dark and assume you tossed a plate on it so CAA would haul it?

    Get in touch with some of those build shows like on Spike, they might be interested in doing a Canuck Truck. My favourite saying from Jesee James' show was FREEBIE!!! Remember cheap is good FREE is better.

    Meh, couldn't see it ending up TV show quality. lol. But real cheap and a pile of free will be involved. Of course this all depends on if the engine is pooched or not. Gonna spit on it, kick it a couple times and try and fire it up this weekend. A buddy is coming with a compression tester in the off chance we can get it running. So, fingers crossed. My plans for it seem to change every day tho. lol. But, if it runs decent, it's on!

    Hahaha, too predictable. You alone will be the cause of rate hikes for CAA members.
