Hell yes.

I've seen some Wagoneers with the old-school grills on and they look badass too.

Ill trade you a nice superduty ford with a minute mount plow... Power everything, good heat, auto trans, cup holders, defroster that works...

Close enough!

3/4 tone is correct but its a 360 with a warner t-18 4 speed. This summer I am throwing a 427 cobra jet into it.

It's an '87. Water-cooled motor. Previous owner took delivery in Germany, then bought the truck back home after a trip around Europe.
87+ and up is the preferred year due to all upgrades to the body, and the motor...
