Hello, I bought this truck when I was 16 as a project. I'm 28 now and I still don't see a day where I'll be able to start it yet. Right now I'm only putting out feelers to see if someone would be interested in it. I'm not 100% sold on selling it.

Here are the details:

It IS an S10 in reality but according to the Title it is technically an S14.
It has shaved door handles and a door popper. Only the one for the drivers side ever worked and I have never messed with the system myself as they were installed before I owned it.

The battery is dead and the starter is dead as well. I replaced the battery two years ago to see if I could get it running and the started had died in the mean time. I have another starter that will go with it.

The truck rides on air bag suspension which is fully customizable to whatever height you want. It will not sit right on the ground but unlike some other poorer jobs I've seen, the front tires stay straight on mine when it is all the way down. The air compressor was mounted in the bed before I bought it and the rain killed it. It is now under the bed but still needs to be replaced before the system can be used again. These are cheap units, but I do not already have this part.

The truck currently has the smaller 2.8 V6 in it. The engine ran absolutely fine when I bought it so aside from the starter I wouldn't expect any issues at all aside from sitting around and it has been stored inside the entire time.
Here's the good news. I have a 4.3 Liter engine ready to be built for it. This engine is available for an additional 800. The engine came from a car my uncle owned. It was in a 36 Willy's coupe and put out 305 on the dyno. We had to replace the block as the person working on his car at the time left water in the coolant. I had the block taken apart and while it was at the shop they ordered a new block for it, bored and honed it .060 over instead of the .030 over it had been, and shaved the heads .020 to raise the compression. I have all of the engine parts, Holley carb, Mallory distributor, CSI performance water pump, roller rockers, and so much more. My uncle had spent serious money on this block before getting rid of it. I have headers for it as well. The engine unfortunately was never put back together. The block has sat wrapped on an engine stand in the garage. I oil it yearly to keep it as clean as possible. All the parts are in the truck in totes.

Transmission is a 5 speed.

Paint is all primer.

Rear bumper was removed before I got it.

I have 2 racing bucket seats for the truck that will go with it for an additional 200. Other than that I have most of the stock interior aside from a bench seat.

First pictures are of the truck when I bought it. Engine pictures are of the engine I described before it was torn down. All of the bolt ons are still in good condition. Last pictures are of the truck now.

I am willing to separate the 4.3 engine and truck at this point.
