I Picked This Up Yesterday

-
Since I sold the Suburban I had some money burning a hole in my pocket… It’s a ’67 Panel that originally had a 6 cyl and three on the tree. It has some mods but I’m good with that. I’m thinking a 383 and 700r4 for a driveline and I have a complete air ride system that I have been saving for the “right” truck. I think this is it….

Re: I Picked This Up Yesterday

Thanks guys, I have already started tinkering on it. I have a completely rebuilt '76 front cross member with dropped spindles I have decided to put under it.

Yes, The guy I bought it from had the work done and drove it quite a bit before he moved here from New Mexico.

Yes, and the tail lights have been frenched (molded into the body), rolled pans front and rear, louvered hood and a few other mods.

Cool panel!
Looks like it has some 6- lug 15x8 rear wheels also.

Almost bought a 4wd 70 panel a few days ago, just didn't fly with the wife having a few projects in the yard already. To bad for me, that is a cool panel you picked up.

Looks good, Leon. I suppose now you'll be spending all your time in the shop instead of on here.

It does look nice without the bumpers.

Thanks for the compliments gents, I am going to work on it some today.

I didn't even notice the wheels Keith, glad you mentioned it.

Mark, I think the rolled pans would have to be removed to do that, but I may put some old school Hot Rod nerf bars on it. Something like on the '32 in the picture might look good. We'll see

Tinker, you need to get out more...

Well, I got the front cross member swapped out today. It's really easy with no engine and trans in it.... It is completely rebuilt but the guy I got it from had it sitting outside for a while... I think I am going to put 6 lug rotors on it so I didn't worry about the rust for now.

2 problems here. First you can't post a wanted to buy unless you are a subscribing member. ($15 or $25 a year) Second, 250 I6 stands will not fit a 292. The 292 stands are different and can be hard to find. Your best bet would be to become a subscribing member (Click on the word "Subscribe" in the menu bar at the top of this page for info) then post a "wanted to buy" on the parts for sale board.

I'm not sure where you read that I was going to change the rolled pans and lights. I replied to CG that the rolled pans would have to be removed to put bumpers on it but I don't plan on doing that. I kind of like it the way it is, but I'm old school that way.....

Old skool rules. That is what makes us different, and maybe old timers.
