Re: My 63 SWB BBW Build Frank

Had a productive weekend... #1 the most important.. got the cab mounted


Here's some pics once it was first on.. we still had to adjust the cab on the frame left to right/front to back before finally tightening all the body mounts but couldn't wait to take a picture!

Then proceeded to put the gas tank back in and bench seat (not pictured) then new reproduction rubber mat so it can sit out to fit better...

Re: My 63 SWB BBW Build Frank

Next weekend on to wiring, e-brake, speedo-cable, sound deadening and insulating the cab floor, etc.. the following weekend core support and front sheet metal.. and week of the 29th new exhaust then start Frank up!!!

Also pretty sure I'm going to be ordering CPP 6-lug front disc setup with drop spindles...

For now.. they're stock 15x6's that I powder coated. They're off 73-87 so they'll clear disc brakes and I have the full set of 64/65 stainless caps. Once I get the disc brake kit on I'm gonna see if the track width difference is noticeable and if so some 15x8 steelies out back.

However I've been debating on some mob steels, transport wheels, or centerline smoothies.

Re: My 63 SWB BBW Build Frank

So didn't get as much as I hoped done on Frank this weekend but isn't that the truth for most of us lol.

I got the Cab all lined up and I'm happy with the fit. I also got the gas tank permanently installed with filler neck and hardware.

I also started on the electrical, installed my reverse lights, and began finishing the back section of the wood bed floor.

Re: My 63 SWB BBW Build Frank

lookin' good... hope this doesn't pop any bubbles, but i like the green and white bed colors better than the cab color. i know it weird but theres just something about that medium green with white and the GMC color break on the bed is just too cool. sorry, i'm sure either would be nice. just can't help myself.

on another note...
you're doing a great job on that chassis and engine and the ride height looks terrific.

Yeah the whole front clip matches the cab so if anything I would paint the bed to match but since this is a patina build I'm not going to.. plus the second I do I know I'm going to get the "is it a real shortbed" question all day long. As long as it's like this, there's no question that that bed was not altered (you can't mimic that much aging and get it right).

But I do agree with you in that the two tone bed colors are a great combination!
