Re: 68 Golden Anniversary pickups, interest in them, etc...

[QUOTE=KevinK7;8365354]Relatively new here, but I was lucky enough to grab one recently.

Still all original ( 6 cylinder Turbo 400)

Kevin: I'm a little jealous. You got an actual anniversary model.... Good for you! Are you going to restore it or drive it??

Have made a little progress on the Camaro... Nothing like you are used to seeing though. Got the firewall welded up, a new floor in, patched some other places, and got the new dash installed. Will be starting quarters and trunk when funds permit...

Congratulations on the truck! Let me/us know what your plans are!!!

I think I remember the new owner was selling it. He contacted me about my 9 foot bed and extra side steps I had, but the price was too high or too far a distance.

It's pretty cooll that Chevrolet did this to commemorate their 50th year of making trucks!!!! NOT just trucks, but the very best trucks ever made!!!

I just bought my good friends 2005 1/2 ton SWB 2WD pickup from him, a few months before he passed away. I helped him pick it out when he bought it new.
I was getting it insured through my agent. She asked what brand it was. I told her, it's a Chevrolet, what other brands of pickups do they make???? She was young and clueless...
I believe only the op can post a poll in a thread, others can't..

but it's looking like a moot point, seems the general consensus around the board is no new sub forums..

oh well, let everyone pile in here, make it the 68 Golden Anniversary MEGA Thread

likin' the pictures and comments above

and special shout out to Kevin, nice truck! anymore pictures, interior, engine room? thanks..

good luck y'all!

Thanks Darrell,
Plans are to LEAVE the patina but do the mechanicals, replace the 6cyl with a 350sb (from a '67 Camaro , and rebuild the Turbo400. Add disk brakes, and drop it. Lastly, swap to shortbed and DRIVE it

Re: 68 Golden Anniversary pickups, interest in them, etc...

I've done all the mechanical repairs needed on mine and have left the paint as is.
At our local meets,I often get asked when I'm going to restore it or at least get it painted.
I don't plan to!
The reason? It's mine and I like it just the way it is!
I think it's a unique truck,compared to all the lowered and modified stuff out there.
So far,I never seen another anniversary around here.Not even at Crusin the Coast.



Mike.
