Progress on my woman's '65 Short/Fleet.

It's been a while since my last update. After spending a few Fridays at the shop prepping the engine and tranny, we finally got to put some of the truck together. This past weekend I finally went for the rolling chassis and brought to the shop. Got the engine and tranny in and started on the exhaust. I thought I had a driveline ready for it, but it ended up being about 2" too long. My bro-in-law had one the right length, but we're waiting on new u-joints... Here's some pics... This was Saturday..

Re: Progress on my woman's '65 Short/Fleet.

In the evening on Saturday, with the rolling chassis back on the trailer, we packed an overnight bag and went to my brother-in-law's (Fred) house up in Rowe, about 35-40 miles NE of Santa Fe(where the rest of the truck is). We spent the night there to get an early start on Sunday morning...

Sunday was kind of a scary day... We started off by switching cabs on a '62 that Fred's putting together to sell. We used a cab moving device that he built. Scary, to say the least, but it works..We didn't win any safety awards, that's for sure, but we got the job done...

Re: Progress on my woman's '65 Short/Fleet.

Now back to Lisa's truck. Using the same cab moving device, we removed the cab from the '72 chassis it was sitting on back to the original, cleaned and painted chassis.

And this is how it sits now... We can't wait to get back out there and finish... Look at that smile on her face... I don't think she minds that 283!

60-66's are the best!! We have just the '62 and this '65. My brother in law, Fred has quite a few on his property. He's building a '61 stepside and a '65 Suburban...along with a '67 Fleetside and a '71 Monte Carlo. Donor trucks are all over his property. My stepson's '63 project is also out there and my '73 Cheyenne Super. We're just a bunch of junk collectors! God willing, we'll get all those projects done one day...

Re: Progress on my woman's '65 Short/Fleet.

Outstanding detail on the SBC - really nice valve cover decals! Family project to the max. Really quality looking work - even that rig to lift the cab. Please take some more of those great pics!

I really like those wheels on the truck, they look really good.
I've been looking to replace whats on my 66, do you have any specs on those sets?

Great project!
