Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

Nice to see you poking away at your service truck.
I can't wait to see some paint on it.

Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

Took it for a short run to the gas station.
Finally worked out the power disc brakes.
It was as simple as adjusting the push rod to engage the booster sooner.
It's a good day.

Thanks for posting, guys.
Trucks that are Trucks.
I do like the practicality of the box.

Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

Sorry for not being around lately and answering my Private Messages.
I've been blitzed with work and school.
Please just ask your questions about the 14-bolt and front discs here in this thread.
Chances are others can also lend their knowledge, and/or others can benefit if we post in a thread rather than Private Message.

Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

These are the last pictures I took of my 66 service truck.
Since I found my old 65, I pretty much stopped work on the 66 service truck.
So after it just sat parked for close to a year, I decided to sell it.
I mentioned it to my old business partner and long time friend.
He bought it.
I helped him run it out to his house last week.
He's excited.
It'll make a great work truck for him.
He's a Carpenter.

Know this is an older thread, but this is a great looking Service Truck!

Is the new owner a member on the forum?

If not, and updates or recent pics of the truck to share?

Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

I drew some house plans up for a long time good friend that I sold this truck to. Now he wants to give this truck back to me for drawing his plans.

Yep, we cut a deal. He's giving me the truck and some cash for the drawings.
I'm going to try and emulate this one:

Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

Then you got your truck back..
I've owned a dozen or more trucks in that time..
Keep on rocking..
You got the best luck of anyone I've ever seen..
2 former trucks return to the nest..
Dude.. buy a lottery ticket..

I had hoped my old construction partner was going to be able to make use of it, but he has since left it parked out at his property for the last few years.
I kind of feel like I'm saving it. I don't plan on doing anything major but maybe clean it up and paint it orange. I'll keep the box white. Mechanically everything had been upgraded. Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, 14-Bolt, and a low mileage GM crate 350.
Sometime this month we're supposed to see if we can start it.

Re: My 66 Service Truck Build Thread

Went by and looked at the 66 today.
I guess I should have expected it to be a little rough. A good pressure wash will help.
I meant to get a picture. Here is a satellite pic from Google maps. He's got some wood stacked up on the bed.

We haven't been able to find a time that works for both of us.
I really don't need the 66, but I don't want to leave it out in the field of his property.
I'll clean it back up and then put it up for sale so I can get me a 62-65 nova for a daily driver.
