Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
'41 is a little out of my era, but it's one "my son bought me so it must be built "
ya, stayed with the six for this one, keep it stock, keep it quick. got the last piece of my crewy dually off fleabay last nite
so i have a '64 short, a '65 stepper, and a '66 short, liking the '66 kit grille best, so a '66 it will be....wit the paint i grabbed for it, $120 (??!!) so far...still be needing some decent tires yet...
'41 is still cruisin' along. no int tub, some of the int is on the chassis, some goes in the cab, but here's the dash, and some pretty loud color...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

It may be out your era but it looks bad @$$. I can't wait for the, 64, 65, 66 crew. It kinda sounds like a Johnny Cash song.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

could'nt think of anything else to call it Dale..
ah-hah...now i can build what i really want to...
here's my $17 buck paint for it. guy at the store says it's "hampsted metallic green" apparentley an '80s honda color (?) i picked it cause i thought it was oldsmobile green metallic engine paint. tuff color to photo, changes color every time i try to take a pic. check it out, i'd say the last one is closest to what it looks like real life, and it's still not the same

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

this is a fun build Dale, really enjoying this one, lots of parts to play with...
ended up re-doing the top of the windows, added some strip styrene in there....and notice the vent is white- broke the stock one twice, so said the hay with it and made one...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

thanks Dale!
slowed down to practically nuthin last few weeks. was waiting and waiting for my '66 from fleabay to get here, finally emailed and asked what was happening, guy is like "oh, it got back-ordered to july" grrrr.....(especially cause i'm also on day 12 of quitting smoking too...)
so today went on a 150 mile pilgrimage to the big city. and i came home with a '66, and a couple others, prices were just too good to pass up.....and i aint blowin 20 bucks a day on smokes anymore...

with the spare cab from the '66, i'll turn the '60 into a crew shortbox, and got a wicked plan for the blazer. will look cool...
and here is finally all the kits needed for the '66 crew dually...

while i was waiting for the '66 to get here, started digging in boxes and found everything (inc tires...) to do another '57 cameo. actually i found 2 cabs.....but already got a '55 crew, so this one is a supercab instead..
yah, 2 on the go, not the smartest thing...

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

Nice finds, the fenders look good on the bed and the super cab looks great too. Good luck on the quitting the smokes too. I'm need to quit too.I need to quit too, just lack the will power.

Re: '64 chevy 2wd to 4wd

It's coming together really nice. Speaking of Bud, the Clydesdales are here. Yesterday I took my girlfriend to see them and have our pictures taken with them. It's amazing how big they are. I also played fetch with the dalmatians. Keep up the great work on the truck and stay strong on the smokes.
