Picked this 1982 Power Ram 50 a few weeks ago, and I have started to hunt down parts, and with the upcoming three day weekend I'm diving into it. The truck was sitting for about 10 years, but it runs, needs some work, but it will give me something to fix up for my daughter's first car. (She picked it out anyways) Now that I am digging into it, I thought I would start a thread showing all the work going into it. I thought about doing a v8 swap, but I already have enough $ going into performance mods on my daily, plus a 16 year old girl doesn't need a small block.
When we first got it, it had 4 different size tires and all of them were completely dry rotted, it's also missing a very hard to find grille
It's got the G54B 2.6L, it runs great when it warms up, still need to figure out why it's so hard to start. Will eventually probably just go to a weber.
The interior is where most of the parts are missing. What you see is all there is.
Floor pans have some serious cancer. At the time of writing this, I have already cut out the passenger floor pan, and am installing new 14 ga steel.
