Default 71 800B

I bought this 800B for my wife. But then she gave it to me cause I gave up my other vehicles. It came with 44's front and rear. Chevy 305, 700r4, Dana 20. Body looked really straight but lots of things were hiding from sight.

Cute little baby. Too bad the rust worms had such a feast and too bad the po chose to cloak it rather than fix it. Looks like you're well on your way to righting that wrong.
