Stats: '77 RC 4x4 with a 400CI BB. I think it's got a 383 4bbl intake on top. I converted to 5 on 5.5 inch bolt pattern. I just put that holley 4160 on last weekend, I think my old 4011 had a leak around the throttle shafts, so I said screw it, and shelled out the dollars. I plan to lift it, put meats on it, and attack the rust next year, as well as work on the interior.




That was my 1st RC, it was a really reliable, allbeit rusty truck. Had it 6 years and was a blast, and the reason I bought the '77.

Both Ramchargers have less than 90k on the odometers.

the 77 looks great, the 83 needs work and the neighbors Jeep is nice too.

Sweet project!  I like the jeep, but I will take a RC over a jeep any day.  Also, maybe I'm just lazy and don't want to search, but what kind of wheels, lift, ect. ?

those wheels and tires look sweet on your ramcharger. do you know what backspacing the wheels have? also do they have open center caps available for the front wheels? i have the same lift on my 92 except i'm only running 33's. do you have rubbing with the 35's? your truck is looking really good. keep up the nice work.

body work (some rust to fix up) interior, I need seats, thinking about carpet, plus stereo system.  headers and 2.5inch exhaust, dunno what kind of mulflers to get yet (currently has dual glass packs that exit down just before the axel)  paint.  might go to 4:10 gears (3:55 currently)    might try to find a 440 to build up.

it's looking really good. that truck would look really good painted in the same colors with a set of the factory smaller mirrors on it. that's just my opinion though.

I'm looking around for the smaller mirrors, but the ones I come across are always broken. I might start looking for aftermarket ones.

I haven't decied on color sceme yet, I am not a fan of the green, tho.  I probobly won't get around to working on the rust until next spring.
