Name:  Matt & Anne Balish
Location:  Princess Anne, MD
Year:  1973
Make:  Chevrolet
Model:  Custom Deluxe
Owner Comments:  This truck is a Frankenstein, the VIN number says '73 1/2 ton, but it has 3/4 or 1 ton axles on it (not sure which), the drive train is 350/TH350/NP203, with a 14 bolt rear end.  The fenders are off a '75, because the badges say Silverado K30.  What I have done to it so far, changed the oil, added a new filter, and battery, and put in a new distributor, cap, rotor, wires, and plugs.  My plans include: fixing all of the leaks (this poor old truck leaks like a sieve), new brake lines, new e-brake cables (none on it now), new shocks, and rebuild the steering if needed.  Once she starts running good, I have to adjust the t-case linkage (not a 4x4 right now).  Needless to say I have a lot of work to do, but my overall plan is to get this truck looking sweet with a 3 inch lift, 34 inch tires, roll cage, winch on front and rear, rock slider under the cab, and so-on.
