Re: 1970 ... Its our 50th Year. Lets see 1970 Trucks

My 70 I'm deciding if I'm going to go through with the build. Just brought her back from California after 5yrs 3 of them sitting down at my dads. Was a daily up here in Oregon and California until I parked her in 2017 to move back to Oregon for a job position i had originally before moving back to California became available back up here in Oregon was offered to me. I have owned her 8 years and really haven't came to the conclusion of how to mange my time to rebuild and a realistic budget sorry for the picture I know she looks rough.

Re: 1970 ... Its our 50th Year. Lets see 1970 Trucks

Mine, the night I bought it. The next day I decided that this fender was perhaps a little too far gone and put the other box on it. I explained to my nephew that I haven't painted it because I like Halloween so much. It is an original V8 automatic SWB truck which is extra rare in Canada. The 307 was swapped out for a 1970 350 at some point.

Since it runs good and actually goes down the highway pretty quick, it is my daily driver most days, and as a result it is a Project of Least Concern. Which means I haven't done much to it, I spend all my time and money on four other ones which I don't enjoy nearly as much as this one.

An unexpected nice part of having a Canadian truck is having documentation as well. Not only is this a lifetime Alberta truck, I am the first person to register it outside of the city of Calgary. Love this truck, someday I will give it the attention it deserves.

I'm trying to get in touch with him/them to search my 68 right now, I will let you know. I emailed George Zapora, he seems to be the guy in charge, I will see if he responds.

I'd be interested in your truck's story, I have always thought it odd that a Canadian truck from this era would end up in the USA. Wonder if there is a thread devoted to that.
