1962 stepside project by realvc

This little stepside was found on Craig's List not far from my home. After checking it out we made a deal on it and the project began.

I use the word project because the plan for now is to make the most needed repairs and not do a frame off restoration.

It needs a lot but for now I'll make sure it will start, stop and go. Then on to the rest of it's many needs.

The basics are it is a short wheel base stepside with a 6 cyl. three on the tree.

It is pretty much all there without being modified over the years. There is the usual rust but not as bad as some I've looked at.

The bench seat is still there. It has a new gas tank installed by the previous owner and there is a new widow regulator for the driver's door that needs to be installed and new door seals and sill plates were included with the deal.

I think the truck was green from the factory and has a beige or fawn interior.

There will be pictures coming when I figure out how to do it.

When I made the trip to buy the truck I left my phone at home so did not get any pictures like a I planned and now every time I think about taking a picture I've got grease and grime all over and don't want to handle my camera/phone.

So there you have it for now.

Purchased Wed. Sept. 28, 2016

I just remembered this, my wife took a picture of the truck setting in yard after I had unloaded it without me knowing. The next day she was showing it to all the guys where she works and even the women, everyone loved it and had an old truck story to tell. I was totally surprised when she told me. She said it was fun to see all the men's reaction to the truck.

I'll still need to check Craig's list every day to make sure my truck is not on there.

Cab corner rust, rocker rust, not as bad as some and worse than others. Seat is pretty good considering it is 54 years old.
The truck is green under the primer not sure it is the original color because of the paint on the door jambs.

Re: 1962 stepside project by realvc

This is a flickr test so some pics. are dupes.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/143948...posted-public/

O.K. so I've got another learning curve to deal with.
Anyway I've got a truck and I've got pictures too and I've got a project thread on the forum so that accounts for some progress anyway.

I always enjoy talking with you too.

Still trying to sort out the rear drum brakes among many other needs on this Stepper. The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

Re: 1962 stepside project by realvc

The rear brakes have been a real poser. Finally figured out the the emergency/park brake cables were rusted and not releasing causing the brakes to lock up on right side and to be very tight on the left even with the adjusters backed all the way off. Disconnected the cable system for now.

The battery was dead because I had left the battery cables connected and a hot wire was grounded out so the road goes on forever and the party never ends.

Took care of the grounded wire, charged the battery got it started.
I unstuck the seat tracks and installed a new choke cable while the battery was charging.

Got the oil bath air cleaner apart and cleaned up some.
Picked up and cleaned up some of my mess so I could shut down for the night.

I have a leak at my right rear wheel cylinder now from taking it off and putting it back on the last time I must have cross threaded the line. Fun, Fun, Fun.
