'67 Freshen-up

I have owned my '67 since I was fourteen.(1992) A friend of my Dad's gave it to me because the brakes were shot. It was fairly rough even back then and I have always just drove it as a cool beater with various rattle-can primer paintjobs. I have had a few projects over the years but not had one recently. I decided to tear the old Chevy apart for some rust/dent repair and give it a real paint job.





...Here are some of the "looks" the truck has sported in recent years.

Here is the tear-down so far. I'll post more pics as I go.







This is a before and after of my last project (I know...a Ford...it fell in my lap, long story)

Good work on the "Old Rebuilt Dodge" ...LOL I have a similar story on owning a 85 F150. It's my trash truck, it looks the part...

Looking forward to seeing what you do to the 67!!!

Okay, I'm back. Sorry all the project is moving pretty slow. The truck is at my barn on my property 11 miles from my current house. Hard to get out there and get any real time in on it with job and family stuff happening. I welded in New lower door skins, rocker panels, cab corners, and rear floor sections. I decided to use panel bond for the rear wheel arch panels. I welded similar pieces into another project and had trouble with shrinking metal and burning holes through thin spots. I used sheet metal screws to hold the panels in place then just ground the heads off the screws and blended the overlap shoulder down with a flap wheel sanding disc

Size:  50.5 KB Sorry I didn't document more but I carry an old flip phone that doesn't take great pics and cannot upload them to the internet very easily. These are the wheels I'll be using. 6 lug chrome rallies with mastercraft thin whites.

Re: '67 Freshen-up

I have Polaroid pictures of some of my stuff years ago.


That paint color looks great
