I've got a 1989 S-10 4wd 4.3 liter 5sp manual. Shop work truck, has about 160k miles on it. Called the "Mule". Small, strong, and bucks. No way can you feather that clutch to get a smooth start!!!! It is going to buck.

Bought this Wista 4x5 after seeing an ad in a magazine when I was 20. Had never seen one "in real life" until the box arrived in the mail. Figured if large format was what Ansel, Minor, Edward, and Imogen were using, it was good enough for me!

Oh crap...you said 4x4, not 4x5

My mechanic also details the truck for me. He gets a little carried away in the engine compartment. Use to run a pit crew for a dirt track race team. They're use to cleaning everything. Not sure I needed the battery and cables that clean and shiny.

No, actually it is an original LHD. In the ex-MOD vehicles, they would do either during build depending on which countries they were shipping to. They are easily switched to either if you study the set up and cross linkages. Even the bulkhead was set up for either.

It was originally an ambulance. It has had a "civilian" conversion and now can be either a soft or hard top or pickup because its a three door, not a five door. They are cool trucks!

Here you go:

And speaking of hp, it has the 8:1 high compression head for a whopping 81hp. Good thing the diffs are 4.71

As for the conversion, the chassis is essentially a pickup, then they would add the various rear tubs depending on application. So remove ambulance tub, and replace with pickup tub. The reason it can be soft or hard top is the lack of the second row doors as the top hinge needed a hard top mount.

The ex ministry of defense is nice because the new build had different specs to include frame undercoat, removable frame cross members, oil cooler, 2" higher ride height, heavier duty cooling system, gusseted axles, black out tail lamps, dual gas tanks with valving accessible while driving, etc. etc.
