I think so, they look like factory turbin wheels.

my 78 rc had those. the inside spokes were painted red to
match the paint. i think mine were made by spangler, sengler....something like that.

Heres one of the more major bondo spots on the body. I am still scared of what is under it :-[ P.S. there isn't a strait panel on this truck and 75% of the trim is missing

O.K. heres whats up with the truck. I have removed what was left of the trim pecies. I am planning to grind down all of the rivets, welding up the holes, pulling a couple of dents (A few thousand :-\) And painting it camo. A 3/4 ton axle swap is also in order. As is either a 4" RCC supention lift or a 2.5" rancho suspention. I am also going to get the bed rhino lined. Next week I will be buying new tires, 33"s Hopefully. Recently I added a cross over tool box and a sony CD player.
Any suggestions are welcomed with open arms. So hit me with them!!! :)

Thank you ramtuff!!! My only problemm with the tuck is that I can not get away with a 440 swap. (I live in CA. and they stopped 440 production in '78)

That sucks. In my state, as long as you meet emission standards for the year of the vehical, anything goes. And that's for vehicals with a regular registration. If you have an antique or street rod tag, you're exempt from smog tests. I don't know how CA handles smog tests and antique vehicals (probably not ver well), but you might be able to get away with a 440 swap if you register it as one. In PA it has to be 25 years or older to be eligable for antique plates.

In california if your vehicle came with a catalitic converter it has to be smoged. :mad: That means vehicle 1973 and eariler are exempt. Also vehicles w/ a 9000# or heavier GVW are also exempt. So I guess I am just S.O.L. for now. :-\

Another update-
Sadly the truck has been wrecked :\'( The passanger side B-pillar and door are basically destroyed. It is either going to require a huge amount of body work or a new cab or a completely different truck and use this one for parts. See my thread in open disscutions entitled "my truck got totalled today" for more info
