jaber - Congrats! I would have been afraid something would crawl out of that seat and bite me on the backside driving it on and off the trailer! I hope you have your shots covered.

He must have been jumping it, the rear passy spring was broken also. Luckly I have parts....

After seeing what our East coasters do with the Swiss cheese bodies, I was not afraid of dents and critters. Plus, I looked VERY hard before I got in....

Way to go Jaber! My 77 J-20 has the same color interior and the same paint on the exterior. LOL, however my interior is in a little better shape than yours, a little.

Nice score. It looks to have a lot of potential.

You sure it's a 304? J20's never came with them (maybe in Cali, one never knows what anyone did from the facotry out there)

The PO told me it was a 360. When I picked it up, the first thing I did was crawl under it to correct him that it is a 304. The VIN says it was a 360.
The GVW on the sticker says 7200# and its a "p" code.

I think it'll make a strong work truck. I wont have to worry about scratching it.....

OK, I have an update....

I changed my plans when this one showed up. It had the t-18 I've been searching for for several years. I went ahead and pulled the engine, trans and t-case and put them into the wrecker. My goal for that one is "close" to original, eventually...

After the engine came out, I found a lot more work that needed to be done to make this thing usable. I cant believe all the stress cracks I've found on this frame...
So far, I have swapped out the wiring harness with an '85 GW, that gives me power everything, wiper delay, digital clock, etc. I have Hydroboost installed, waiting for hoses. The Caddy engine is in, mated to a '71 TH400 with Nailhead pattern and a D-20. For running down the hyway to work, I swapped out the 4.10's and now have 3.73's in it. I'm hoping this thing will not be screaming down the road.
Next on the list is to put a 454 TBI unit onto the Caddy 425.

Heres the pics....

Working on the TBI. Trying to merge GMC to Caddy to AMC....








The insulation around the tiny brown wire from the alt is crumbling. Do I need this wire? Its also 20 feet long. Does it need to be that long? I believe it to be a resistor wire, but not sure why it needs it. Guess I'll rap it in elec tape and bury it into the loom.... Oh, yah, the wiring harness is from an '85 GW.

Goes to the alt.. Might be te field wire! Otherwise known as the sense wire. I'd replace that sucker!! Looks real bad. Where does it go? Was it part of the jeep harness or the Cadillac? Also. What model alternator?

AwEsome build!!!!! That cad 500 just bearly fits In there! Heck of a find. You are one lucky duck to get it for free!

I am kinda hard on work trucks, so I am building this one as a work truck. Dont have to be pretty, just a reliable "JEEP". I have a service bed that'll go onto it. The engine is only a 425, not a 500, YET...

As for the wire, its a single, FINE strand wire. I was told to replace it with a light bulb...I taped up the bad spots and will just burry it into the harness. It is part of the '85 GW harness, and the back of the 2 alts (Jeep and Caddy) were the same. So everything seemed to be plug and play.

I have to do fuel pump, radiator, tranny lines, O2 sensor, and drive line.
Getting closer one Sunday at a time....
