Default 1971 800B V8 build. "Old Mac Donald"

The time has finally come to get my last project on the road. I have been collecting parts for 2 years now, and so I pulled the 800B into my shop.

My biggest worry is that my purist streak is going to get in the way of my alter ego: My rock crawler side...

As many of you know from the "Alpine treasures" thread, I have a lot of NOS parts at my disposal saved for this truck. Things like all new gauges, or new springs. Problem is, I don't care much for the OEM springs on these trucks. I'm leaning towards wider and softer.

I have a good set of YJ springs for a SOA conversion, but don't think they would like the weight. Perhaps I'll use them just in the rear, and go with somne travelall springs I have for the front. IDK.

As for the gauges, seems a shame to use them if I'm not doing a resto. Should I sell them and use the money towards lockers? Again, IDK yet.

So, untill I figure out what my true direction is, I will do some body work.

First thing I did was remove the full top, and traded it for a 1/2 cab top. Saves a bit of weight if I go in the crawler direction. I plan on tube doors also.

I removed the front clip so I could pound out some bent metal on the pass. side. Looks to have been hit, and crumpled up the inner fender in three places.

When I purchased the truck, it had no engine. My spare 345 had a front sump pan, so I had to swap it out with a double humper

Man I love the logo's on the doors, very cool! I'm also partial to 800's in general.

I started my 800 build with the intent on just doing some minor upgrades for better driveability. Well, it got a little out of hand, see my 800 Build thread! There are some good ideas there on some various issues that the V800's have.

Ditto! Totally sweet door logos. Nice to see another 800b getting worked over!

Thanks guys. I'll start checking out the build Barker. Thanks for pointing it out.

Today I took the old B/W tranny out. Took the doors off, seats out. etc... Gave everything a bath with hot soapy water.\

Now to figure out how to use the 727 tranny. It was in a 2wd truck. Guessing I need to remove the tailshaft and go from there. I'll have to research the options.

Was going through my stash to see what parts I have for the build.

I found a Hydro boost system.
Set of SII axles from a 76 Terra.
3 speed tranny still attached to a D20 from the same Terra.
Steering box from a SII.
A compressor and mounts for OBA.
A power steering pump and mounts.
new 1" Body lift kit. Came from Scout Madness IIRC.
Also found a new wiring kit (8 fuses).
a set of 4 YJ springs.
Unused gallon of U-pol Raptor black bed liner.


A D60 rear, and a D44 front w/4.10's. Pass side drop...

I'm getting a feel for what I want to accomplish.

Very cool!
This should be a fun build.
I'm with everyone else on here. The door logos would be awesome if you can save them!
Will look forward to watching your progress.

Looks like a great starting place Eric! I am voting for your alter ego and going a little more extreme, especially with the components from your parts stash.
You wouldn't happen to have two good rear quarter panels off the same Terra would ya??

As for the doors, they are not doing much for me. Tube doors would be first on my list before anything else. Maybe a little maroon paint....
