    Default 1983 centurion

    Hello guys! I found this beauty in Evansville Indiana its an 1983 model with a 460 c6 in it. I have a couple of questions though. I didn't come across any bashing on it and would like to know if its a centurion or a Cabriolet. Also does anyone know what the rear gears would be? My guess would be 4.10s but would like an expert opinion. Couple more questions I have about these rigs I see it has external horns are these secondary air horns? If so where is the air tanks located? Anyone know the size of the fuel tanks on these tow rigs? And I noticed it has a spotlight up top. Can anyone point out how to move it and switch it on? Is it cable moved or electric motor? Also are the 460s in these just a factory spec 460? Sorry for all the questions just would like to know all about this big behemoth before I lay cash down. Thanks again guys
    Oh btw these are all of the pix I took of the truck. And someone threw some extra seats in it too.

    The stains on the headliner are a bit concerning. It looks to me like the handle for controlling the spotlight is removed (where the wires are hanging out of the overhead console).

    It is most likely a regular 460. Nothing wrong with that. And I would almost guarantee it has 4.10's, they didn't put lower gears than that in anything. The C6 has a very low 1st gear.

    I'm gonna take a look at the liner and see if its leaking. Either way I'm gonna try and get this baby.back on the road. So was there a handle where the wires are hanging for the spotlight?

    I took a look at the ceiling today and and as far as leaks go we Are okay in that department. I found where those wires are hanging is where a dome goes. Slowly but surely I'm getting familiar with this rig. I'm honna be buying it here in a few days. I took some more pics. Just to give an idea with what I'm up against.
