Re: My 1968 C30 Wrecker rebuild

Moose, I'm not sure I'm going to put a radio in it yet. I've had just a day here and there to work on this again. I had to remove the winch and get it broke loose from years of sitting. I ordered new bearings and seals for it. I ordered new bearings, races, lug nuts, studs, and seals for the wrecker dollies. I did some painting using chassis saver silver. I did give in on painting the bed black, well mostly, like it was originally.

Finally got things coming together. I used Herculiner on the bed to make it more durable.

Re: My 1968 C30 Wrecker rebuild

It took me a full day to get the bed mounted on the chassis by myself. It's starting to come together.

With a few days here and there, there has been some progress made. I got the dollies and sling assembled. Mounted the power take off shaft and made the linkage.

Re: My 1968 C30 Wrecker rebuild

I got the clutch cable ran for the winch. The marker lights and the exhaust pipes mounted. In the process of rebuilding the winch right now and painting the west coast mirrors. It's been nice to be able to get a few things accomplished on this.

It's looking great!

I saw a 67/68 Chevy Wrecker out in the middle of nowhere yesterday and thought of your build! It may have been a runner, but looked like it needed a lot of work!
