If you want to see a few pictures of the interior, here's a link, but... Don't say I didn't warn you. The 70's were a different time.

That hit most of my buttons. I like it more AFTER seeing the interior.

There were interior shots in the original link, if you scroll down far enough.

Also, a pic of the starting instructions for the "Super Gasoline Engine." No diesel.

Oh. Didn't scroll down far enough. Now I see what hdmtnrider was talking about.

Yes most of the trucks that style were all gas v-8s If I remember right it was a 460 badly underpowered for highway travel and a 2 speed axel

Definitely not a pickup, but unless it's been repowered, it will be gas powered. Would likely be either a V477 or V534 engine in a C900 in that era.

That's 1970 horsepower. Adjusted for inflation that is 1210hp in 2017 horsepower. That'll get it done!
