Buck's '63 SWB Fleet Side Build

I picked up n2billet's '63 he called Milly a few weeks ago, my plans aren't even close to the vision he had but I am really excited to work on this truck! It really feels like an honor to work on such a clean truck, nothing is rotten or molested and I take the responsibility of being her caretaker seriously. I see this truck going through a couple... let's call, them generations that will culminate in what I intend to be my forever truck. Now... I know most of you that will follow along know my '68 stepside still holds a special place in my heart but that truck is long gone and I don't foresee it coming back into my life so Miss Milly will be my focus as long as she'll have me. Here are a few pics from the the drag home, we'll talk more about her future later... take care y'all!

Just couldn't take my eyes off her during the ride home!

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Dadgum, I love your truck. I have the same bumper on mine and was wondering how it would look painted white. Looks a lot better than silver!

Looks like the peer pressure got to you and you started a build thread after all.

Re: Buck's '63 SWB Fleet Side Build

Went picking the other night and picked up some front end parts. The guy bought new rotors and calipers then decided to part out the truck so I got those as well as the upper and lower control arms and the steering linkage. I hate to do anther set of control arm bushing but here I go... We have a set of ECE 2.5" drop spindles from the boys '67 that'll help get the truck down in the weeds. Hope to have the wheels later this week and I'm going to go look at a 5 lug 12 bolt tomorrow after work. Things are starting to come together.

Re: Buck's '63 SWB Fleet Side Build

Just a pic of Milly and Project Underhaulin to the thread alive-ish. Milly is on the back burner until my shop is complete, the contractor is supposed to start tomorrow. Hopefully it will just be a month or two.

Not much happening with Milly as I am waiting for my shop to be completed. I did get the '85 C10 front end parts back from powder coat and I ordered a few parts for the rear suspension from Jason at Deadend Garage. Her are a couple pics of the front end parts and my little shop.
