My New-to-me 1975 J-10

Postby drfronkonstein » Mon Oct 09, 2017 2:37 pm

4.2L I6, 4x4, 3-speed on the floor, basically all original except for wear out parts. Missing a few pieces here and there, just slightly rough around the edges. At some point in it's past it was sprayed in John Deere Green. Plan on doing a solid tune and touch up this winter.

Been having a blast with it. I've recently moved and it's hauled appliances for me as well. Definitely getting addicted!

Thanks!

Vincent

Cool ... quite similar to my '77.

I wonder if it's the original bed. I thought that the first year for the plastic filler recess was 1978. What's the VIN? Does the number on the frame match the VIN?

Good catch Tim. 78 was the first year for the plastic around the fuel filler. Even with the poor lighting, the bed looks a different shade of green. Maybe it was swapped out?

I have no idea. I will take a look at the VIN and let you know! Is there a way to date the truck by the VIN?

Thank you
