From Brian :
Here are some pics of both of my 1964 Chevy trucks. One is a C-10 Custom Cab Shortbed Fleetside, with a 350ci motor and TH350 transmission. It has the panoramic cab and factory air conditioning. I have had it since about 2000. I drove it for a year after putting the engine and transmission in. Then I pulled it apart to replace the rockers, cab corners and a few other things. Of course, it snowballed into a bigger project! The frame is now painted. I lowered the springs and converted the brakes and wheel set up to 5 lug with disc brakes. It is still waiting some body paint and new wood for the bed.
The second one is my 1964 Chevy Suburban (here's a nice size picture of it). It came from Rich “RJ” Sisneros (who has a 1964 Chevy Crew Cab and a 1965 Chevy Longbed Fleetside) here on the ‘Bolt. I needed a ‘Burb because I now have two kids. It was originally bought new by a Mr. Howard Cahoon in Woodland, Washington. Woodland is about 2500 miles from us here in Arkansas. It was originally powered by a Chevy 292 and 4-speed transmission. Now it has a Chevy 350 cubic inch motor, and a TH700R4 transmission. Also added was power steering, new brakes, and air conditioning. The rearend was rebuilt and the front end now has disc brakes. I also gave it new body bushings and replaced one rocker panel. The other side should be on this weekend. Maybe some paint by Christmas??? Spring?
Here is a Photobucket display of my “junk.”
Thanks for the great site. I come here nearly every day.
