eBay I was looking for this truck Single Cab with 8.1 496 Big Block and Allison Transmission for about 3 years. Finally I found Allison she was in Central Texas and was with her 2nd owner a 62 year old Attorney in a small town. She was purchased by him in 2004 with about 30,000 miles from his Brother in law about the same age and the truck was originally from New Mexico. I do have complete car fax from my purchase.
The Vehicle was always adult driven and maintained and has never seen Salted roads or snow. I bought the car in December of 2016 she was the perfect candidate. Her paint was a faded from the intense Texas Sun but 100% rust free that is all that concerned me- was to have a perfectly rust free truck. The previous owner had recently changed plugs and wires, break booster. Allison had a few scratches and a dent on the back rear panel the usual pickup truck dent behind the rear tire. She purred nicely the 8.1 is not a loud set up. The sought after industrial Allison 1000 Transmission was perfect as well with 172,000 Gentle miles on her. These setups often exceed 350k miles without any issues when taken care of.
My Dream went into Action. The truck went to my mechanic a Master Mechanic at that. I will list what we did over a 18 month period.
As soon as I got the truck I Put on Factory Size Nokian Rotiva LT 245 75 R16 - these are the Ultimate All Terrain Tires. Nokian Invented the snow tires if you did not know they are from Finland and EXCELLENT and smooth like a highway tire and have the snowflake emblem besides having a seriously deep tread but not too aggressive looking. These Tires are excellent on Gravel, Sand, Ice and Snow go to TireReviewandmore.com (Not for Rock Climbing) Changed Differential Fluid with Amsoil Full Synthetic Gear Oil.

A Volkswagen Jetta side swiped Allison on Drivers Side Door while i was up North parked in front of my friends house the drivers side door was replaced with a 2002 exact fit Chevy Suburban drivers door. There was no structual damage to Allison Just needed a new door and Scratch from Drivers Door to back of truck you can see in photos. Everything was fixed at body shop as you can see in photos the entire truck was repainted there was no other damage. Truck is 100% Title is Clear.
