Can`t bring myself to scrap my old 1983 wrecker. Frame rotted away after 160K miles of PA salt. Took off the road in 2008 but used around shop for R&R engines/pushing in no-starts etc. It all ended lifting jersey barriers couple years ago. I have been LOST here without this piece of equipment. Searched for another used non-roadworthy wrecker and they start at $5K in these parts. SO.... After acquiring this solid 1978 K2500 with a blown small block for $700, I got to thinking... I have everything I need to make a simple winch truck. Sold the bed off the 78, pulled motor, auto tranny and transfer case. Brought the 83 in to begin surgery. Pulling 454/4-sp/transfer/boom & winches to put on the 78. It`s not gonna be on the front page of Tow Times or American Towman but I will have a handy light powerful dual winch truck. Stay tuned as this might take this old man all winter...
