This is kind of a continuation of my other thread and I thought I would start up some type of resto thread for my '71 CN-800 since I have been tinkering around with it here lately. As in my other thread this truck has a Cummins V-504 naturally aspirated V-8 diesel. It has a 5 speed trans and 2 speed rear axle. I bought this truck back in 2003 or 2004 (can't remember anymore) from a local farmer who was selling it for $1,200.00. It was originally a single axle truck and the farmer added a lift tag axle so he can haul more weight and also the pintel hook and air line to haul a pup trailer. Over the years I drift back and forth with it between my other car projects,so not a whole lot gets done on this truck too much. Well I got that itch right now and been working on here lately again. Here's my before pics. of when I first bought it.
