My new project the White Whale.

Just got this home today after chasing it for the last 5-6 months. The truck came from CA and was sold to one guy in MA then to another guy in MA. I'm the fourth owner this year. Anyway the truck is very stock and all there. There are a few spots on both sides that need to be repaired but overall it's in great shape for being 50 years old. I love the grill, 67 is my favorite now.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Thanks guys. The plan is to put a 5.3 and 4L60E from a 2004 Suburban in this truck. Get it up and running and then start on the little body work that it needs and interior work after that. The drivetrain is coming from a running and driving vehicle and we are going to leave the motor and trans as stock as possible for now. Hopefully by next May/ April this truck will be running and driving and getting ready to car show season next year.

Once it's running and driving I plan on painting the whole interior interior white and doing gray trim, along with gray seat covers and gray carpet. Then plasti dip the whole outside white and black plasti dip on all the chrome/ polished trim pieces.

Eventually I'd like to put some Detroit Steel wheels on it, 20's in the front and 22's in the rear.

Thanks Hart Rod. It's going to be a big project but if I can get it running with the new engine and trans then I can start doing a lot of the small things.

Does anyone know what the original color of the engine bay should be? The truck is all white with a red interior but the engine and underside of the hood is All black.

Thanks,
Nick

Re: My new project the White Whale.

I don't know if it is correct, but my firewall is white and the rest is black. LOOKS right. Here is a pic of my engine bay and a shot of the old burbon.
I like the stock ride height, but that's just me. Makes it very "usable" if that makes sense.

Good luck!!!

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Thanks guys. I guess I need to get sanding and prep for some white paint before the new motor goes in. I'll leave the fender wells black and paint the firewall and under portion of the hood white. This should be an interesting project. I've never painted anything this large before.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Appreciated.

Just kinda makes sense that the firewall would be body color. And I think that's how I normally see em when they still have the factory grease pencil markings. Always on top of a color.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Well I finally made a little progress on my 67 Sub.

I finished up the electrical work in my garage and pushed the Suburban in the garage for the first time. We removed the hood and I"m going to be getting the engine bay ready for paint before the new to me 5.3L engine goes in.

I'm also going to be removing both bench seats and installing the seats from the 2004 Suburban that the motor came frame. I felt like I was actually making some progress with the truck in the garage and seats ready to go in.

Good deal! Glad you are making progress on it. You will really like the 5.3/4l60e combo. If you haven't already, be sure and go to the LSx Swaps forum, there is a ton of info there on the swap. Keep us updated....

Thanks Leon. We are hoping to have it up and running by March/ April sometime. Once that's done then I can start doing some more appearance mods to it to make it look a little better. I already picked up a set of 16" 6-lug wheels and I plan on painting them black and I want to mount some wide whites on them. No trim rings or center caps.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Here is a few more pictures of the seats I will be using. These came out of the 04 Suburban that a friend had owned. The truck had been used as a shop truck for his work for a while so it got REAL dirty. Before that it was owned by his boses wife who has a few kids. There was sticky stuff ALL over every panel in the truck.

Before:


After I cleaned the left side:


I used straight Simple Green, I'm going to put some leather conditioner on all of the seats before they go in the truck after they are all cleaned. The Simple Green worked green but took some elbow grease.

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Looking good, I'm jealous. Was on vacation the week before Thanksgiving and pinched a nerve in my back on the way home. That really messed up my work and suburban schedule

Re: My new project the White Whale.

Spent a little more time in the garage this week. Got both bench seats moved to the rear of the truck and pulled up the vinyl matt and what looks like the original backing to the rubber matt. It looks like this truck is all original from looking at the floor. I think it's the original sound deadening material on the floor. Any idea how to get that stuff up so I can put something like dynomat down?













Now it's time to do a test fit of the front and rear seats. Once that is done I can start having some brackets made to mount the seats. I have a friend that has a CNC table and he does side work with it.

If it is stuck down good it can be a bear to remove. In the places where you can see there is no rust under it I would just leave it and put the new stuff over the top of it. Double thickness will help with sound deadening and won't hurt a thing....

Thanks Leon. I guess I was just concerned of the new sound deadening material sticking to that old stuff. I can't see ANY rust on the floor at all. It's all painted red and then that stock stuff over it and most of it is stuck down pretty good.
