Yes, it is pretty decent and we did think twice about restoring it also. But...one can only have so many projects going at once...and, more importantly, it will be nice to finish a project for a change!
We plan on salvaging quite a bit of the truck to install into the Suburban -- we will take the 327 engine with all the associated hardware, the hood which is in pristine condition, the steering wheel, dash gauges, trailing arms, side view mirrors, seat belts, and two speed windshield washers. And we will compare other parts to see which are in better condition and choose accordingly. Fun stuff...can't wait to get started.
