Re: tuba trucks

Thanks Clem.
Wish I had half your skills to get mine running.
So far if I want to get my truck moving I have to find a really big hill.
See ya in October!
Merry Christmas

That is one of the coolest potential things ever Clem.

I like those little touches.

Regarding the shop truck bumper, it looks a lot like the chrome bumper I took off my truck, that I still love madly, but was never able to identify the origins of.

The pic does not show the ends clearly, mine was neatly rounded, it was also cut on the tips to fit closer to the body.

Any idea what era or truck it was from?

It seems smaller and lighter than most "agricultural" sized bumper.

Hope to hear from my contract agency soon about my travel vouchers so Martin and I can get the plane tickets booked to your shindig......!!

Did I mention we are actually quite (VERY) excited about it all?

Re: tuba trucks

picked up a couple of new additions to the flock.

a pretty nice 63 custom cab with a near mint grill and bumper. it also had all four chrome caps that were very good as is the windshield stainless. from what i've heard from the 63 guys... that stuff is hard to find. unfortunately the last owner tossed the hood and put on repop front fenders, at least the original fenders are in the bed. its a V8 with 3speed and if it got a big window conversion it would be a sweet driver... also got a nice 65...

those are the factory guards and you are definitely first... they sure need to stay with that bumper so we'll be talking about it.
man, we're gonna have some fun in october. i'm thinking for the early arrivers, a trip to my favorite junk yard is in line, make a parade out of it.

super straight... 283... 3 speed shifts smooth as silk... great wheels and new tires... killer patina, you might be right. with some pontoons and a paddle it doesn't count as luggage... does it?

Re: tuba trucks

been working on a 63 no frills resto for a friend. went front disc and 5 lug out of an late 70s blazer. 350 and 700R is the plan, stepside, painted grill and bumpers and caps... this truck is for Cotton who owned the baby blue long bed with the spot lights that you may have seen on the forum. Cotton has a fun side to him and he loves to take a blank canvas and paint his own picture, so that was our goal. to do a nice but basic pickup for him to accessorize his way.

to start with he picked out the maroon color, decide on the 2 tone with white accents and he picked out the seat. so we're well on the way to making Cotton's canvas.

Re: tuba trucks

Clem,

That looks awesome. So I after seeing many of the two tone paint schemes with White tops I have discovered I masked mine lines wrong around the windshield. Oh well guess mine will be unique. Most people won't know the difference I guess.

Love that color and the original restoration. It seems like everybody is slamming them with bags and ditching all original stuff. Nice to see one like this.
