67 Vermillion Red CST Build

Here are some pictures of my truck. I picked this up a year and a half ago and I am starting to make some progress.
My goal is a nice reliable driver. Also, I wanted something to do with my twin boys that would give them some mechanical knowledge and ability.
I am going to put a modern LS engine in it mainly for reliability and also because it is really inexpensive power.
I purchased a wrecked 2006 GMC Denali pickup with 96000 miles on it for $2000, parted it out and sold $1850 dollars worth of parts. I kept the engine, (LQ9 6.0L) 4L65E trans, gas pedal, computer and all the wiring, exhaust etc. So I am into it $150.00. That is why I say inexpensive.
The truck is pretty solid. The floors and cab mounts are really nice. It does have rusted rockers, and the cowl in rusted through.

Not sure why that one pic keeps posting sideways. Tried changing it 3 times.

Re: 67 Vermillion Red CST Build

Sweet. I have a full sister to that truck. If you are going to run an LS are you going to run a digital gauges set-up? If so I would be interested in your original cluster.

I am not sure yet. I need to look at some. I dont really like look of the Dakota Digital. I want it to look original. Classic Instuments has one that looks close, but not quite. Maybe have classic instuments retrofit so it looks original.

Re: 67 Vermillion Red CST Build

This is a picture of me and my sister in front of my Dads truck. 72 I believe.

I was born in 67 so I would have been 4 or 5.

Re: 67 Vermillion Red CST Build

Hope I can get it all back together. That took me a couple of hours, after putting up some more lights in the garage.
