Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

I picked up this original 65 C20 37000 mi. 327 4 SPEED I drove 427 miles home it felt like driving a new truck. PO had truck repainted in the early 80s very bad prep that allowed water between paint and r/f pillar causing rust. I have replaced pillar and rocker and now a new coat of paint. The gold 66 is my daily driver.

Ping me if you end up going and I can meet you there (or drive over with you if you are coming from North Scottsdale.) I live just off Dixileta between North Scottsdale Road and Pima Road.

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

A couple new pics. I found a local guy (about four miles from my house here in North Scottsdale) who does hand lettering and striping and I had him lay a sign I designed on the truck and then take most of it back off again.

I remember that one from CL. You barely beat me to it. I had contacted the seller and got some very poor pics. I saw the bad pillar/rocker and was concerned the rust might be more involved. A local board member was cool and checked it out for me, took some better pics, and I was making transport plans when apparently YOU bought it. I guess he who snoozes, loses.
It looks great, Lets see more pics! Go ahead, rub it in!

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

A few more shots check out date code on orginal sparkplug wires.Also spring ring battery cables are not all destroyed from removing them. Its to bad the po took the truck to the wrong painter. The bed is real nice cant get the picture to load.

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

Here's mine, been working on it for 2 weeks straight. I'll post better pics, when she's closer to being done. I suppose a truck like this will never be done. Always something fun to do on these.

Re: Where's the 3/4 ton love?

My Dad had purchased a 1965 C20 Custom with a 292/3 speed column shift, brand new early in 1965 before I was born in September of that same year. I camped in that Truck, I hunted in that Truck, I played in that truck......I grew up in that Truck.

Now I have a Son of my own and thought it was time for him to share/create similar memories, so I found a near exact copy of my Dad's Truck(C20 Base Model with a 292/3 speed column shift) and had it shipped from California to Virginia. I have been working on it the past couple of months and have loved every minute of it.
