Blake's 67 GMC stepside build

Hey Guy's, here is another build I started back in 2012 for a Guy in Arkansas.
It's a 67 GMC stepside (farm truck highly used) The plan was to replace suspension, drive train,interior,paint etc,etc...This has been going on and off for around 2yrs (at times no work done for 7mnths) Well the time has come, He finally pulled the trigger to finish the old girl so I will get the build started..

First few pics are as it rolled into the shop..
Hope you enjoy the ride..

Mark...

Re: Blake's 67 GMC stepside build

Nice one to start with. Is he going all '67 look, no side markers?

A three pedal, four eyed, slant nose stepside. That thing just makes my heart go pitter-pat! Congrats, man. That's going to make a fine project IF you waste the Patina and toss in a BIG BLOCK!

Re: Blake's 67 GMC stepside build

FITZ.....This truck will be a mix between a Daily driver/cruise in kinda build. The owner want's it to be really clean but with some custom touches..

Engine wise it will be a 5.3L 4l60E combo and smoothed out body and full paint..

Re: Blake's 67 GMC stepside build

No problem! I wish I could. I want to look for a 67/68 c10-c30 or GMC, in addition to my 68'. I want one in one of the darker colors though. something like dark Blue, dark Green, or Vermilion. id maybe go up to a 69-72 but I really like the 67/68 look in these colors. and if I get any of them I want them with white trim, not chrome. Just gotta start saving up haha!

Re: Blake's 67 GMC stepside build

LMAO that hose clamp is hysterical!! but the frame doesn't look too bad for sitting! I cant wait to start my frame-off restoration. my truck is ghetto too LMAO. The previous owner zip-tied one of the exhaust pipes to the frame because it broke off LMFAO.

...and sloped hood...hand brake? My guess is either the fenders were changed or it's actually a '68. Obviously, the 5-lugstuff has been swapped-in (or a 67-68 cab was swapped-on to a 71/72). I figure no matter how it started life it's going to be (or appear to be) a '67 fenderside when done. I'm also building a '67 GMC that started off as many other trucks from 67-72 ('71 frame). How about those grille letters

Re: Blake's 67 GMC stepside build

Ok Guy's!
Yes it has things that scream 68...The Cab and title say 67...it also came from the factory with a V6,drum brakes and 3 on the tree....
The front and rear suspension was swapped years ago for 71-72 and a small block.
At the end of the day 99% of us will change things to fit our taste...
The truck is 48 yrs old (you have changed alot in 48 yrs too..Right?)

Special K, the sloped hood was standard on the 67 and the 68 models. The letters in the grill are only on the 67, all others where on the hood. Picked up some of this info from this site. http://www.pattson.com/maych/67_72_gmc.htm ...Jim
