Gutted Interiors

Google wasted my time trying to find shots of the interior of Tahoes and Caddy's with no interior except the dash. No paneling, no headliner, no carpet...nothing.

I plan to revert a modern ride back to a 60's ride for the interior and paint on the exterior while having a stock drivetrain including AWD for the winter months.

I have a long list of stuff to do and wont reveal it yet...

Sounds interesting.... Have you tried, interior installs like sound deadening, carpeting, headliner replacement, etc?

It seems to me, my old '88 Sierra - factory service manuals showed interior panel - removal/ replace & had 'sketch' views of the raw cab?

Even though you are keeping the year/model secret....

Try contacting some of those TV show 'restoration' garages... the websites??
Try contacting, Chip Foose.... ( He's a nice guy - He might suggest some ideas how to find bare cab interior views).. As Chip does renderings, he may have reference photos.

( upholstery shops?)

Re: Gutted Interiors

I found what I needed but was more disappointed in trying to find lightly tinted glass to replace the privacy stuff. Then it hit me to build something no one has ever thought to do. In a years time I will release the build sheet. I have to finish the 65 GMC and get my 64 El Camino road worthy to sell it.

Yea... restorations are fun.... The 'Cuda is the Snake's- original, brought back to life, and the Mongoo$e Duster was re-created from a found body.

(Did you see the movie " Snake & Mongoose"? )
