  • Another one headed to the scrapper

    I was told about this truck a month ago or so. Went and looked at it and told the guy that owned it I would like to get a few parts off of it. He told me I would have to buy the whole truck for scrap price. I didn't really want to mess with the whole truck, and my wife sure didn't want me bringing it home. I didn't figure it was going anywhere any time soon, notice the tree stump between the bumper and grill. So today I got a call that it was on the trailer and headed to scrap tomorrow; but I could have what I wanted off of it. Headed over after work and got a few things off of it, in all reality there there isn't much on the truck that is worth saving. It had a good set of door visors, but he ruined them when he ran a cable through the windows to lift it up with his boom truck and set it on the trailer. I guess the good news is I got what I wanted off of it for free and didn't get any grief from my wife for hauling it home.

      Looks fairly rough. Not that I want to see it crushed, Japan and China needs new sky rises nuclear power plants.

        Rear fenders are rusted out badly in the front corners. Tried to get the bumper, but the v shaped hitch is welded to the top of the bumper and then welded to the frame. Would have needed a torch. It also had several breaks in it.

          Should have saved the wind shield and back glass.

            Both are cracked. Like I said, not much good on it.

              Little things like door handles outside and in, inside rear view mirror, door lock assembly on the pass side (Alex Adam in KC on the truck forum is looking for one), adjustable seat frame, and many more small items if I had the chance to get there and take them off. I'm only 90 miles away.

                I got the door latches and handles off of it, that's one of the things I wanted. I was going to get the mirror, but it wasn't original, didn't have a adjustable seat frame.

                    TDITS: If it hasn't been scrapped yet and the 6-lug, "3/4-ton" wheels look any good, it would sure be nice to save them as they are hard to come by. BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
