Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Very nice!!!
My 68 has most of those options, except mine is 1/2 ton.
Mine is a 396/Th400/PS/PB/AC optioned.

I bought mine in 1980. Yours looks better right now than mine did back then. Mine needs a complete rebuild. Body, engine, transmission...everything.....

Looking forward to work done to yours!!!

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Now some small desasters:
Under time pressure batterie wrong connected (human error because the kill switch was mounted in the minus line -for me unimaginable. Effect: Smoke in the motor room, Result : 1x new batterie 1 x new regulator= very anoying.

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Found out that it is necessary to change the foam too (weared, smelling bad...).
Wondering about the number under the seat:3898335

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Covers from SMS Auto Fabrics, in my opinion they have done a great job.
The foam is bigger, seating is very convinient, sleep now in the car :-).

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Thanks for all the pictures, I was hoping you would expand on your work! Looks EXCELLENT Gerhard! Where did you purchase your foam? Did you replace both pieces?

Re: My 1968 C-20 Golden Anniversary Project

Regarding search lights:
Hi Brian, this picture was created during the Herschey event days, indeed I have only one and a 1/2" drill, hard enough.

Regarding seats:
Yes I have removed all.
New on the seat is
Seat 12 cm Kaltschaum ( 4,7 " cold foam, polyurethane foam or poly foam)
Back rest 4 cm Kaltschaum ( 1,5")
All ordered by a local upholsterer,
Upholstering tools too, see picture.

Regarding CST guy:
Phil, thanks, would be all the time also a little bit from you inside and kept in memory.
By the way do you have an idea why brown leader was also below the seat?
