From Brett:

           I have a couple more additions for you! The sanding and priming is done for the time being and I have put in a 5/8" plywood bed to make the bed useable. I just put in 2002 Silverado seats (bucket, console, bucket) to replace the bench, so now I have seatbelts in my old girl!

           It was my grandpa that got me interested in both Chevrolets and fixing them up. When I was young he gave me a hat that said "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Fords" and he has rebuilt 90 International tractors and trucks. A friend of mine in high school got me interested in the '64-'66 trucks though.

From Brett:

           I have been looking for a '64-66 Chevy truck since I was 16. I was working with someone at the local grocery store and he started putting back together this '66 longbed he found in three pieces in his Grandpaís back forty. I instantly wanted this body style.

           So I have been looking for almost 10 years to find the one I wanted to start fixing up myself. All I could find around here were Longbed's and I was stuck on finding a short bed. I finally found this one. As luck would have, the guy moved in next door and didnít have the time to fix it up. I bought the truck in March 2006. The only problem was that it was a Stepside and I really liked the way the dip between the hood and fender continued through the bed. So I found a '63 donor truck with a short wide to put on her. I put the new bed on recently (August 26, 2006).

           I have already started sanding down the bed to paint it the grey primer that would match the front. After that, it will be a while until any real noticable changes. My next real project on the truck will be to take the 350/350t engine/tranny out of the 78 Camaro that I bought for the power plant. Right now it has a 305 and three on the tree.

           This is a fun but expensive hobby! (Amen, brother! ~~ Editor)
