SGTUSMC '59 build

Well I took the plunge and bought a 59 Chevy fleetside (I read OrrieG's build thread to many times). I just closed the deal on the truck. Good news, it runs and it's all stock, 2wd with a clean title in hand. Bad news, pass side bullet is creased in some. Both pass/driver lower door hinge pockets are rusted pretty bad. It does run and stop. I paid $1800 for it. The guy's going to deliver it tomorrow.
The guy has 3 more fleetsides along with a bunch of 55-59 step sides, three 67-69 Cameros and about 5 or six 60-70 Chevy and GMC trucks. A couple 54-57 Bel aires. There about 30-40 old 1930-70's cars and trucks in this guy's yard all for sale. If it's okay with the moderators to post his number I will (I'm not affiliated with this guy other than finding his post on C/L and buying a truck). He does have a bunch of good ol tin for sale in his yard, and he's a really cool guy. I just thought I'd throw that out there for those looking for tin.
This is the only pic's I have of the truck via C/L. I'll post pic's once he drops it off.

Re: SGTUSMC '59 build

Sarge, What's your plan for this truck? Similar to the GMC, or are you going an entirely different direction?

As an aside, I've posted this picture of a largely stock but detailed out 292 straight six because...well, I LOVE how it looks. I'm hoping it inspires someone with a new build. My truck already has a 350 that runs great but I am still tempted to find a 29 just to do this and hold onto it. Maybe if you decide to go inline this will give you ideas.

Re: SGTUSMC '59 build

Welcome to the 4 holer side! LMK if you can't locate a reasonable bed side down there, I think there are a couple floating around here on CL now and then and I know some TF guys. So what's the theme this time???

I've got a 4.3 v-6 for mine but would give it and an eye tooth if I could find a 292 like that!

Re: SGTUSMC '59 build

Okay my pig has finally arrived. Thanks guy for allowing me to join the 4 holer club. I'm not sure which way I'm gonna take this truck. I was thinking about going stock, however, my wife really likes it. She was bumping her gums about a pink and off white ratrod...lol

The guy's name is Mike Blackburn (661) 303-9812 (that's in Bakersfield Ca). Like I said the man has a lot of old tin. I asked him again today if it was okay to post his name and number, and he said it was fine, and to mention he gets new tin weekly.

I did see a big window cab sitting on a frame. He was talking to a guy about a bed or swapping out a bed. I wasn't paying to much attention. I was scoping out some of the cars. You should contact him and see what was the deal with it. Or what he might be able to get.

Thanks Nick, Yeah I guess this will the wife's bomber. I'm just so happy I don't have to try and do a car. I'm hopeing I can get this truck done. I just don't really have it in me anymore. I'm kinda kicking myself now for picking it up.

Re: SGTUSMC '59 build

Should be a good project. Do you still have the LS7? Drop that in there and do an air force theme that way it can be a real bomber! Seriously, hope you find enough energy to do this one as nice as the other truck.
