hot damn! looks good to have lived up no-th. mine came from the mountains of tenn. the rockers had cancer bad. yours look in good shape.mine also had some to spring up at the bottom of the rear windows up under the trim. one day i would like to find a cherry body to build a nice asphalt only 4x4 88. fresh 360 crate, maybe 2.5" lift with 33's on 12" wide aluminum mikey's. and paint it that deep burgandy candy metal flake GM used on the 05 tahoes.

so what's your plans for it?say the 88 has a 440? got pics?

The first 2 years of the 88's life was spent in Rocky Ford, Colorado.  From there it went to Hudsonville, Michigan. The guy that bought it, it was his playtoy.  It was never driven in the winter.  He put the 440 in it with the full manual automatic and quarter stick shifter.  He also installed the lift kit. We are planning on cleaning it up, and fine-tuning it. Then I'd like to add the D-60 front and D-70 rear with Dana power locks. I'd like to use it for the streets and beaches.  My other truck is dying a slow death.  :'(  I'm leaving pieces of rust along my trail.  Notice how I didn't give you any profiles of the 85?  ;D  I'll post pictures of the 88" motor soon!

Thanks guys  :). I'll try to get some more shots up this weekend. The 440 is so much fun. I want to get the dash back in this weekend & then I'll post some pics of the gages.



This is one shot during the installation.

Here are a couple shots under the hood. It needs a good dress up. I haven't had any time to work on it this weekend. We’re into a complete kitchen redesign & remodel at the in-laws.

What is a fofo T  ???.  No it doesn’t have a body lift. I'll get some pics of the Motor mounts for you in a couple of days. Yes my valve covers are close. I hope my new Mopar valve covers fit? I'll have to pull the booster to remove the MT covers. Probably in about 6 weeks I’m going to pull the valve covers to look into a lifter tick. It developed it one cold morning when I took it down to the shop :'(. At that point I’ll put my new covers on, maybe glass bead the intake & clear coat it. I don't have a part # for my booster but I’ll look it over. I assumed it was a big block booster out of a RC or pick up. Thanks for the kind words.

ebonics  ;) 440 = fofoT  ;D  i got the same problem about having to remove the booster to get the covers off. price you gotta pay i guess. that's why i inquired about robbins18's brake set up in his thread. your engine just looked lower in the frame than mine did,why i asked about the booster and mounts.

Yes a fofoT ;D. You know it's hard to drive the 85 with the built 318 after the big block. I took some pics of the motor mounts & the booster to valve cover clearance.
