Model:  Custom Deluxe K30
Owner Comments:  This is my 1979 Chevy K30. This truck has been in my family since I was 9 years old. I have owned this truck since I was 16. It has a 400 cu. in. engine. .760 lift cam, TH-350 transmission with an NP205 transfer case. 4.11 Gears, Dana 70 rear end, Dana 60 front axel. It sits on 33X12.50X16.5 Cooper MT tires with 16.5X10 American Racing Wagon Wheels. This truck is still under construction. Future plans include finding an original bed, a 6" Sky Jacker suspension lift kit 35X13.50X16.5 Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radial tires, American Racing Outlaw II wheels, 4" cowl induction hood, new international tractor red paint, new cab corners, doors, interior, and a windshield (that's a whole nother story!).  It is old, ugly and loud...but it's dependable, strong and will pull anything I've ever put behind it including a few Ford's and Dodges!
