Re: My 67 C20 Mild restoration with LS swap.

Aww man, mine came as a "mini truck in progress" I.E the bumpers were shaved, emblems and mirrors replaced with a single -useless camaroish mirror. Like what you are doing with yours so far, these trucks suck you in.

Re: My 67 C20 Mild restoration with LS swap.

I have most of the parts I have taken off.
Things I do not have anymore are the saddle tanks, the rear bumper and the exhaust pipes.

I still have the engine & tranny and most of the A/C unit.
Side mirrors.
Still not sure of what to do, maybe save it for another project?


Yes they just suck you in DEEP !

Re: My 67 C20 Mild restoration with LS swap.

Finally finished rebuilding the transmission and pairing it to the block. Mocking things up to see how they will look?
So far so good!

Re: My 67 C20 Mild restoration with LS swap.

Term touching up is a little understated, what you have done to get the mirror finish on your inner fenders. Awesome.... a black stripe would look good with your finish color also.
