That didn't look like a 1FZ under the hood.

The dash was so clean, with the Nav unit, and lockers switch... it all looks so factory.

I really want to see someone put an LV body on an 80 series chassis :drool:

If anyone wants to tackle the project. I have an LV body for sale ;)

I have not seen any work that even comes close to TLC. Having an unlimited budget helps, but they really do some great work. The LV in the 80 chassis would be cool, but put that body on a 100 series with some wood grain and surf racks and I would be happy.

Beautiful.. so what's the cost for one of those? Would I have to supply my own 80/62?

I think that'd be fun to build, A guy on Mud built something very similar and his project turned out great.

It is totally doable.

man best of both wagon worlds IMO! Except I might go for a diesel over a Vortec.

They had me until the Gm engine. I know some people like it, but that is a deal breaker for me... I have had three engines from Toyota go over 300K miles all stock. Not saying that Gm engines don't serve a purpose, but I like knowing i'll have an engine for a looooooong time when I drive a truck like a cruiser.

Wes, I can't remember if this one was a one off or a 45 over an 80 series...

That was a one off built 45 built on a 100 series chassis. Cool truck though.

I got excited at the Vortec. If it had a 3FE or 1ZFE I just figure what a shocking waste of time and effort.

GM junk is built to run on American hybrid grain fuel. Old Toyota iron is not, so that gap of "reliability" to me is completely gone plus the parts for the GM powerplants that were sold in the millions will be around for decades.

At some point, being able to reliably fix something that lasts for 250K miles instead of 350K miles and that has better fuel economy and twice the power is a pretty obvious choice.

Wow... that is just pretty. Best of all worlds.
