    Question What is this truck???

    Hi all. I'm new to the forums. My past experience is all in Dodge and motorcycles so I'm a bit unsure what this is. I found this truck rotting away near me and I'm in the process of trying to negotiate for it. Can anyone give me some insight on what exactly it is I'm looking at here?

    Thanks in advance!

    I am not an expert, but it looks like a 70's early 80's Chevy or GM with a custom hood and custom front bumper and bumper bar. I am sure someone will be able to identify it.

    I am just wondering why there is a super swamper on only one tire all the rest are stock.

    I say it looks like fun once you get it going.

    It looks like an old Army truck. We used to have one at the fire department that we used as a brush truck. If it is military, it will be diesel with a 24 volt electrical system.

    We ended up getting rid of it because it was too expensive to buy parts for. Parts were sometimes hard to find too.

    Cease negotiations until you know what you're negotiating for. I don't know what it is but a diamond in the rough looks just like a goat turd so be sure you don't pay diamond prices for goat. Good start by asking here!

    Apparently someone slashed all 4 super swampers because the shop told them it wasn't for sale.

    Still working on things on my end.

    I hate vandals as much as thieves. Hopefully that'll help you get the truck and at a better price.
