The Old Mule - 64 BBW

Figured I would start a build thread to keep a run of what I am doing with my new ride. Nothing major, but had to fix a couple things to make it mine.
First and foremost, gotta have my foot gas pedal. (yeah I know, but I lived and survived the 70's...at least it isn't on a Gremlin )
Next was my front tag. I have forgotten how long I have been using it, but as the guys at work state, we know it is yours if it has the plate.

Lastly was having a place for the coffee and water bottles.

I picked up a cup-holder for a 2002 Silverado Work Truck (GM Part#88938355). They are still a bit pricey ($65), but I had mine so I took it out of the 83 and removed the shelf angle that I added to mount it in the 83.
The 66 bench seat is flat still across the front lower lip. Originally I though I would have to pull the seat, drill, then bolt it on, but I found a simpler way.
Got two (2) old Harbor Freight 1" c-clamps, flipped them with the screw end up into the seat and clamped the original cup holder brackets to the seat lip.

Again, I was doing this mainly to see if it would clear and I could mark for holes, but the cup holder is solid and isn't going anywhere.
If you can find one in a junkyard these holders work great for all size containers.

Well back to driving it.

Re: Palf's 64 BBW Short Fleet

I like your cupholder idea. I'm going to put that one in my "borrowed from other build threads" file so I can use it on my builds.
Oh yes, Nice ride too!

Thanks ....at the moment, it is mostly drive it and enjoy it. I got a couple things I am looking at fixing....speedometer gear in tranny is broken and I am going to change it from a 3.73 rear to a 3.08/3.07 set of gears so it will cruise a bit better at interstate speeds. Other than that, DRIVE.

Re: Palf's 64 BBW Short Fleet

Other than driving it, this is about the only real thing I have done to it.

I made a new shifter knob out of a 5 hp Briggs & Stratton piston. I have been holding onto this since shortly after I got my 70 in 2002. Anyways, I cut the wrist pin, added a coupler nut, cleaned it up good and cleared coated it. After letting it dry a few days, I finally put it on this morning. I went and tested it out while I did some cruising around the coast.

Drive on Folks!
