Default Vintage hardbody race truck no start 25 years

Aloha,

Hopefully my truck will come alive soon. Originally built for the 1990 ESSO race through South America just to break a cv joint half way through, itís twin #156 won the race. The front suspension was cut off decades ago leaving the truck abandoned with 6k original miles. I got my hands on it and finished the 2wd conversion. Once Iím done playing with the fuel system Iím gonna try to crank it over. Fingers crossed

I can see myself sitting in the driver's seat making race truck sounds.

Isn't that what you do in YOUR truck?

Mine's not a race truck. But I do sit in it and make wheeling noises.
