Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy 4X4 Suburban

It's has offically started, the carriage in front of the horse literally...........
1968 Suburban 4X4, 327, SM465, NP205.
waiting on reliable car hauler to bring her home from AZ, that's another "long story!"
One very sweet, clean and straight tailgate arrive yesterday via Greyhound from Sharpie.
Thanks!
Picked up a 1969 4 speed and T-case from a friend thats in great shape mechanically for $125, time to clean and paint.
I need to find somebody who can match my keys for the tailgate lock.

More pics will follow soon!

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Did you not have an original lock for your tailgate? Most local mom-n-pop locksmith shops can do the deed for a fair price. I had it done for my wifes Scout a few years ago.

Is your t-case for sure the NP205 or is it the Rockwell 221?

We definitely need more pictures of your rig!!!

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

T-case is a 205, my preference over a 221 for strength and parts availability.
More pics to follow....

Looks nice, bet you can't wait for it to arrive or has it arrived already?

Left to right, transmission boot, 205 boot, 203 boot. I thing the part of the 205 boot facing the hubcaps on the right is the front.

None of those are like my original 68 T-case shifter boot, and I haven't found a good reproduction of a 67/68 T-case boot yet.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Just a thought...

If you are tearing down your burb for resto and paint, take the side trim off from the front doors back and send them to Mar-K.

I heard that they are looking for OEM 67-68 burb side trim to reproduce!

I hope so, because I need the little piece between the 3rd door and the rear wheel well.

Who knows, maybe they will give you all new trim for your trouble?

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Vectorit, Your picture reminded me... In my 69 GMC with the 221, the t-case boot was the same as the boot pictured in the middle. It fit OK, but it was ripped. I adapted a boot off a 80's model NP208 since the shift pattern was the same. I turned the plastic bezel around and flipped indicator lens. I wish I had pictures of it... The tranny and t-case are in my 65 in Cali, maybe I will take a picture of it when I move back!

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Project "Daa BURB" aka Land Barge is moving forward again!
Trans/transfer case & 327 rebuilt and ready to install.
Will need to do some drive shaft and cross member & tcase tweaking for proper fit.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Well here's the proposed final look for the 68.
Little smaller tires since it's only a half ton for now.
The picture is of Vectorit's sweet burb, color was changed to 50th anniversary gold in photoshop.
Thanks for the motovation Chris!

Sanded out tailgate and did some test painting.
Looks like I need a darker mix to match original 68 gold.

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Thanks to cheyenne10 for the very clean and straight tail/lift gate.
Ordered new front and rear bumpers on the way and a bunch of misc parts to get going on daa burb.
Ignition switch and door locks, dash pad, taillight lenses ect ect ect.

Does anybody make a taillight wire harness for burbs?

Re: Project "Daa BURB" - 1968 Chevy C10 4X4 Suburban

Time to get the 15X8 rims powder coated semi flat black and mount 32" BFG AT's.
Weekends plans.... install clean trim and grill from a 68 i parted last year.
Cut hitch off, remove gas tank install new one, new bumpers, wheels and lots of interior work this weekend.
Picked up a gallon of PPG #23048 original 68 gold to paint tailgate as well firewall before engine install.
Should look like a much different rig buy next week.
