Re: My 1963 C-20 Long bed (slow Build)

Its been a while but progress was done in some sense. after lots of deliberation I finally decided to use the cab from my parts truck because i found lots of cancer hiding in mine. what started out as a fixer upper is now a frame off restoration in the eyes of many. here are some photos. I have the truck in the garage now. hard to take good pics.

Re: My 1963 C-20 Long bed (slow Build)

As a single father Raising my kids, its hard to get out there and work on my truck. But It's funny how when they were gone for two weeks how much I got done on it.... I like too say It was more of boredom than desire to get her done..... but i got a lot done... tailgate is back on for the first time in two years.... radiator.... engine.... front clip... hood.... altho its not drivable just yet.... I think I have the desire to hear those glass packs rumble soon....=)

Re: My 1963 C-20 Long bed (slow Build)

Thanks Jeff La... after my break up two years ago... I lost the desire too finish it.... now for the first time in a many years my kids went to visit their grandparents and mother.... so I was going nuts all alone here... lol... think now I found that spark I was looking for to get back on it.... now I cant stop.. I have the time and the desire now... just not the money... but I have enough parts to get her started and back together......
