Hi All,

 

First, my apologies regarding responding to a thread from roughly 13 years ago!  Especially for my first post...Jeez, who is this Lame-O ?!?  

 

However, I have a good(?) excuse as my wife and I currently own a Wikki-Up purchased several years ago via ebay.  We flew down to San Diego, met the owner at the airport, did a very basic inspection AKA 'no inspection' and off we went on the ~500 mile drive back to Minden, NV where we live. 

 

The drive back went fine, no walking required.  Our Wikki-Up is based on a 1980 Chevrolet G30 (1 ton) van 2WD with an asthmatic 350 four barrel and TH400.  The FWC portion behind the cab is the 'Monarch' model.

 

Welp, the next several years went by quick and the poor Wikki has waited very patiently in the project car rotation for its number to come up.  Well, finally it has! :) Lots of work is needed but we are committed to ending up with a versatile and nimble vehicle that will be used for our Baja trips and a bunch of stateside travel.

 

I'll post some pictures and a bunch of the original paperwork soon you might find interesting.  Road test, option list, window sticker, etc.  We are looking forward to picking the brains of the very talented folks on this forum as we move forward bringing this baby back to life.  We've lurked on this site on and off for a long time and we hope to give something back as we periodically document this build. 

 

Thanks,

Matt Wright  

Hi Matt, I would love to see any pics of the interior layout if possible. We got ours about a month ago and we’re trying to figure out what should be where in the interior, as it is mostly stripped out. Also, any of the original papers you got with yours would be great to see! We’re looking forward to getting our Wikki-UP functional!

Working on the wheel wells today. The previous owner(sj hacked them up to pit the big tires on it. We got stock Chevy fender repair wheel wells and we’re fabricating them on. Going to go with a bit smaller tire and more stock-looking rims. Got a bit more trimming and finish to do.
