Those caps and rings are going to look great. I agree, the amber lens looks much better.

Re: 1 Owner 1976 SWB

Are those original center caps for the truck?
I've seen them before and always wondered what the application was.
(I thought they were caprice center caps)

This is the style that is more common,...

To the best of mine & my Dad's knowledge & memory they were on the truck when it was bought new.
I did some research & I read that the 73-76 trucks had a bolt from behind metal center cap & are pretty rare.

Agree. Our '75 had those same caps.

Truck looks great!

Have you seen my build/intro thread (linked below)? I did something very similar, interior wise, to what you are doing.

Once I figured out how rare they were & being original I knew I had to get the cleaned up & make them work.

I read all thru your interior swap before I started mine... it helped me decide on black for sure.

The 75 is a beautiful truck, I like the direction you're taking it. I love the stock lowered look.

Not sure yet. I'd like to get up to Street Machine in Springfield or are they having the all truck nationals show this year?

Honestly I'd like to sell the 72 & run around in the 76 for this season but I havent advertised it or anything because of a work project has me working every other weekend til end of April... then I'll be free on the weekends again

Let me know if there are any other good shows up that direction that I should consider.

Re: 1 Owner 1976 SWB

I think the truck show will be a go for 2013 but you should contact is2blu on the board. Gaileen will be able to give you the specifics. Or check out www.alltrucknats.com

The first week of May is the Magic Dragon Street Meet in Lake Ozark, MO. This year they are capping the entrants to 1,100 as they are running out of room. It's a decent show. Gearys5600 came up last year with some of his crew. I "think" he's planning on coming back. You can search for Magic Dragon on Google and it will bring it up.
