67 chevy shortbed PA project

I just bought my new 67 project at the Fall swap meet at Carlisle last year. I told myself I would build a build thread since this site has helped me out so much. The only three vehicles I have ever had are a 72 longbed, 68 shortbed and now 67. I got way over my head and killed bank account with my 68. So my goal is to keep my 67 driving and not out of commission for long periods. It's been 9 years since I sold my 68. I'm a little behind on starting this so I'll try and get some pics on here of my truck when I bought it.

Once I got back off the road I finally had a little time to work on truck. Only had three weeks so I had to pick my battles. Drum brakes had to go after the 1000 mile trip to Springfield, MO. Driving through St. Louis during rush hour was stressfull. Cut roll pan off and attached new bumper. Roll pan gave me some issues but it works fine for now. Picked up original style wheel with horn button. Changed mirrors out also.

I don't know how to get more than one picture on each post. So I guess I'm just going to have to make many smaller posts. Sorry.

The brakes weren't too bad to install. Running brake lines wasn't very fun under the truck. I see why people wait till they do frame off jobs. The hose going to banjo bolt was upside down which leaked all over my painted calipers. One of the brake lines also had metric fittings which was fun to deal with. The only fitting I had to hold onto was the t-fitting on the differential. It had deeper threads than the newer fittings I tried to buy. Using clothes hanger to figure out line bends saved so much time. Also measure before you buy lines because they make different length lines with double flares and fittings already attached. I learned the hard way plus the stupid tool from oriellys was hard to use correctly. Disc helped a lot but might do hydro boost later.

Sport mirrors back to oval mirrors. Which are way easier to see out of. I had to drill new holes to mount mirrors.

I had to make some metal pieces so I could mount the am radio back in truck. Also I wanted to put new stereo in glovebox but keep the cardboard liner. So I bought two liners and extended the a/c flat spot larger. Had to make small bracket to hold back of CD player up. If I did it again I would put more effort into finding a piece of dash cause it sucked grinding welds down near the knob areas.

Re: 67 chevy shortbed PA project

I never ended up posting pictures of my truck after the 5 lug swap and disc brakes. I also put ss airbags in the back hooked to Shraeder valves for the time being. Heading back to Missouri from Pennsylvania this week so hopefully more progress soon.

Re: 67 chevy shortbed PA project

I am on the never ending debate of a 5.3 or a original 327 back in the truck. My 700r4 is struggling so I'm guessing this 1000 mile trip will force me to make a choice soon. Still trying to decide which hubcaps to run.

Re: 67 chevy shortbed PA project

Making some great updates to this truck! Love a good '67. I'm doing an LS swap in my 68 now but absolutely love a 327 and have one of those put back for my 67. As for the caps, I like the dogdish over the wheel covers. I like full wheel covers on stock-is trucks with all the trim etc. Dogdishes go with almost anything else.

Re: 67 chevy shortbed PA project

Did you buy that glove compartment like that? I like the way it seems to match the gauge cluster.

That's a from-the-factory 67 only thing for Chevy's. Glovebox and cluster both match and are outlined in silver. GMC's are a whole different animal.

Here is a couple pictures of truck lately. Getting ready to put 5.3/4l60e in next week hopefully. I really wanted a all aluminum block and heads. So Iíve been patiently waiting for awhile. I want to keep truck light and fairly simple. I spent today cleaning up wiring and pulling heater out and glove box/radio setup. I used a Jeep tank and I put in s10 speedo with led lights in gauges.

Re: 67 chevy shortbed PA project

Nice progress. You won’t regret that 5.3. I put a 6.0 in my truck three years ago and haven’t stopped smiling yet.

Re: 67 chevy shortbed PA project

Keep up the good work. Nice truck! You mentioned wheel cover choices earlier, I prefer the dog dish type over the full wheel covers but Baby Moons might be a nice look. (then again, I'm an old guy) I was wondering about your interior. My 67 will have a black and blue interior as opposed to your black and red. Are your sun visors black?

Trying to button up last few things before next weekend. Hopefully dropping 5.3l in over the weekend. I installed some stainless steel tank straps I made with rubber in between. Switched to later style plunger brake switch. Which helped me find out that I had shot a bunch of gravel up and knocked some wires loose yesterday. Cleaned up some wires for passenger taillights. Mounted a breaker on the side of my battery tray, I made, so hopefully I donít burn my truck down having battery behind the axle.
