Here are some pics, yes it is N/A. I don't know why I went that route, I might go turbo. I'm just happy it runs. I havn't driven the truck in 20 years. My father bought it when it was new, and I grew up in the truck. He then gave it to me while I was in high school, and the motor went out from no maintenance. And it had been sitting ever since. The body is my next project.

I like the smooth intake manifold, and I can see A/C lines. Does it have working A/C?

That old school 4-tone slanted billboard paint job scheme is SICK. The way it covers both the bed and the cab is dope. You never see stuff like that anymore and candy flake wet blah blah paint jobs are a dime a dozen. If you repaint it, please don't do a solid color, restore the paint to original. You have a barn find GEM, especially if it's been in your family since day one. Swap in a turbo sure, but don't mess with that paint and body.

And keep those white wall tires and black steelies, they look killer.

Thanks you all for the comments and a nice welcome, as for the paint I am planning on repainting it to make it original. I am a fan of the 80's paint jobs, but I definitely have some old school 6 lug Rikens lined up for this truck.

It does have the a/c still connected, but the compressor is v-belt while everything else is serp belt, so I'm still trying to figure that out. One day I will, but it's not too much of a concern right now.

And on the front turn signals, they came this way from 79-82 I think, and then from 83-86 they changed everything and went to the quad headlight design. but there are no fog lights on it.
