I picked up a 1987 Chevy V20 pickup yesterday , it has not run in 9 years we broke the engine loose (number two cylinder was rusted tight ) and she is running now but needs new freeze plugs as they are rusted through probably why it was sitting .

Sweet!
Should be TBI 350, Th400, np208, 9.5 rear and 10 bolt front?

Those look good in two tone as well.

How has the body held up? Much rust?

I removed the front clip to pull the engine to replace the freeze plugs as they are rusted through , and there is quite a lot of rust on the cowl , I think it is going to be like a rat truck brush beater type of thing since the cab is so rusty .

Hmm, I'm on the fence about pulling the clip.
The engines come out pretty fast in those trucks.
But, I have pulled the clips before too.

Still sounds like fun.

I got the engine running again after new head gaskets and repairing the broken exhaust manifold bolt , parts list so far
Exhaust manifolds L/R
Tune up set
New radiator
Thermostat
Oxygen sensor
I think it was about $650 for parts so far .

Took the truck out for its maiden voyage after being parked for about nine years , here is a picture at the beach I still don't have the instrument cluster or back glass in yet , I am going to get a load of fire wood
with it in a week or so .
