1977 with 212k miles. 318 Detroit with 7 speed.
Entire life in low country South Carolina.
Must be seen.

Hi I'm Chad. Some questions that I'm wondering and will help you sell it. 360 or 361? Got a shot across the interior? And if you want to offer up the last 5 of serial #....
Thanks!

I would say looking at the photos...it is not a 1977, because this is a 300 series.
I tried to zoom in on the hood emblem, in one aspect it looks like 361, then you look at the depth of the treadplate over the front bumper and you think 360. Again hard to tell from photos.

Either way...nice truck. :D
Does it run???. Looks like a Case tractor out in front of it in one photo.
All you need do is look at the plate by the glove box for serial number, or a clearer photo of the front plate over the radiator.That would give better idea on value.

Somehow the photos look destorted.

Definitely 73 or 74 361. It has push button door handles and curved bumper. A 360 bumper is flat and has relief hole for drag link. I've had both so I have an advantage!

I think it is a 361 for previous reasons mentioned plus the diamondplate on bumper. I never saw a 318 Detroit with a straight 7 speed trans back that far. I do not think fuel squeezers were out by Detroit that early. It could be a misprint. Nice truck. Joe D.

I talked to Marcus Hogue of shealy truck center in South Carolina. He is the director of inventory and he knows nothing about this truck. It isn't in any of their locations.

Well I guess that makes sense. I was wondering why they didn't answer anyone.
