More pictures of my old truck
From Curt :
I would like to dedicate this truck restoration to my Daughter who was tragically lost in a car accident August 11, 2008, and my Father who died August 3, 2009.
This classic truck's entire life was spent in Wilton, New Hampshire. It was owned by a service garage when new. Many of the employees of the garage are still in town. I purchased the truck in December 2006 from the third owner for $500. So far, I have had a lot of fun finding parts.
The old truck is mostly original. The bed was Fleetside and I am returning it back to a Fleetside.
It was a plow truck, so the frame was a real treat. It is powered by a 292 4-speed. It has a big back window, custom package, and cab lights. The original wheels were painted the same color as the truck. I recently discovered that was a $3 per wheel factory option.
For now, all of the sheet metal is complete and painted. The color is Dark Blue Ditzler (code 12409 for '65 Chevy truck). Assembly is coming soon. When completed, the truck is going to be for show and possibly some weekend getaways with my wife.
Sorry I don't have any photos between as purchased and the current state. The work continued, but photos were not easy to take, and didn't seem important at the time.
Curt, don't apologize for the photo-gap. Glad you have a photo-site. I'm sure you'll be adding more and more as time progresses. She sure looks like she's going to be a beaut. A wonderful dedication to your Daughter and Dad. We are truly sorry for your loss. Family is really at the heart of it all. God bless you and keep you close. ~ Editor
