From Mike :

This is my 1964 Chevy 3/4-ton. My fiance bought it for me as a birthday gift. I was telling her about a story that when I was 18 years old (1983), I became an On-Call Firefighter and my first piece of apparatus to drive was a 1964 Chevy 4 x 4 squad (grass fire rig, tank and pony pump mounted in the bed). It's one of my fondest memories of my teenage years.

So, she bought this truck for me to turn it into a 4x4 replica of my fire truck.

We also got into the rat-rod look so we decided to lower it and set it up for that idea.

This is a pic of it when we first lowered it. It has a mildly stroked 327 with headers. It has Smitty mufflers and a 4 speed behind it.

We are going to leave it lowered, and look for a 1964 or so 4x4 to build as a replica.

Score ... that's a good way to start your Stovebolt harem! Good luck. A good looking truck to start with here. The 4 x 4 will be a blast to do, I'm sure. Keep us posted. ~ Editor
