LUV: 1980 4x4
Name: Marty Kennedy
Location: St. Helens, OR USA
Forum Name: FRoG, man
Notes: Well, the FRoG is nearly done... it's alive, it stops, and it steers. Since my last post of nearly a year ago, lots has gone on. I found a plastic post Quadratrac Wagoneer fuel tank to clear the new driveshaft. It was built by the best driveshaft shop on Earth: Driveline Service of Portland. (a little bias for I worked there 20 years ago.) Little by little and with some help from my friends we got the cab mounted on homemade brackets. That took the longest time of anything to set up. But once it was done, it ain't going anywhere. The engine after nearly two years of sitting, started right up and the 5 speed Trooper tranny is way quieter than the 4 speed it originally had. The box is mocked up for now, I'm still deciding to bob it or leave it. Somehow that dreaded 'import' overhang remains.. but then again I like the Chevy 6'8" idea of their short box. Once I refit the front fenders to match the front wheels' location it shouldn't look as weird. Bigger tires would help too. But I'll let the pics speak for themselves. It's turning out to being quite the project. In the Bible it says, "Nothing is impossible with God." Given that I'm what they call, "Low vision" or on the ragged edge of legally blind in the best eye... I can attest to the fact that verse is true. May the testimony and the pics be an encouragement to anyone out there who's going through hard times. Just gotta hang in there, trust Jesus, and go for it. Shalom, Marty

He recently passed away and his mother gave me the truck real cheap..so in his honor I'll finish what he and I dreamed about.. as I can afford It I'll restore It. It seems as I enter into this project it may be hard to find parts so If anyone out there can help then I thank you very much. Thomas T. Shaw III 5910 Cliff Rock Dr., San Antonio Tx. 78250

Notes: 79 4x4 was purchased new by my father. I learned to drive at 9yrs old with this truck dragging the baseball field at local schools where I played. 90k miles. Burnt Orange. Re-paint in 86. I got this truck in Oct. 03 from my father, as my son is now 9yrs. old. Is being re-done again now. Currently in paint shop. I installed a new 2-inch lift. 15x7 chevy rallys w/ flat disc brake covers (machined front for hubs). 235-75-15 all terrain tires. I have new hickey dbl tube rear bumper, hickey roll bar, and hickey grille guard to be installed. Will repaint original paint code. Hope my son will not think this is too goofey for him.


LUV: 1978 Daily Driver
Name: Chris Hare
Location: Huntington, OR USA
Forum Name: wicked
Notes: I am a 19 year old stuck out in the middle of no where and had to have a project. I had the idea of putting a v8 in a LUV truck, but all my friends and those who I wasn't exactly friends with around here said I couldn't do it by myself so I decided to prove them wrong. This is a 1978 short bed that had been through multiple heart transplants including Toyota 22r and 20r. I swapped it out to the current motor which is a GM Goodwrench 350 hooked up to a 350 turbo tranny which I just happened to come across from the same dealer that the LUV had been at a year before I purchased it. I added Edelbrock 600cfm carb sitting on an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, and topped with a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner. Patriot Tight Truck headers leading back to 30" glasspacks give it that well known v8 sound, but is still relatively quiet. I purchased a Spectra chrome kit an chrome valve cover mount wire deviders which accompanied by the Edelbrock products really set it out from how it once looked. To increase power I removed everything on the front except the water pump, and I will only be running fully synthetic oil (not cheap) to reduce the friction in this relatively high mileage motor. Currently the truck is in my garage due to the fact that I have had too many complaints since I started driving it (people don't like it when someone with youth in my town does something right). Future plans include a LT1 350 which I will order (as most of my other parts) through JEGS. I would like to thank my boss for allowing me the use of the company shop and engine lift (fork lift), and the JEGS associates for their assistance.
