Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and also have a new pickup! I recently picked up a 73 W200 from a buddy to have as a farm truck as I slowly start to rest-mod it back you its full glory! I am going to go through the entire thing eventually and hope to then make it a daily driver. Things I am planning on doing to it:
-Full interior restore with update (new model seats, gauge cluster, sound etc)
-Going to pick up another 360 block to rebuild while drive it around, plan is as of right now is to do a low end torque 408 stroker.
-paint is decent but want to pull whole thing apart and have all metal reshoot
-disc brake conversion
-possible transmission change (need to do more research)
-rebuild and replace all that is needed in the rest of the powertrain
-Then start putting secondary accessories on i.e. Custom bumpers, off road lights etc
Just wanted to pop in, post some pictures, tell you guys what I was thinking for the final end result and see what you guys thought

Great Truck!

Look forward to seeing the progress.

Right on, thanks! If you guys got any do's donut's or any advice, I would really appreciate it!

Update: Just drove hour and half and picked up the new engine for $60 and the guy said he was moving so gave me for free a hood, two doors, front quarter panels, inside door panels/trim, 3 grills, a set of headlight bezels and an extra carb. SCORE!
