1962 Chevy Fleetside Longbox
From Sean :
I found this classic truck on Craigslist and bought it from a guy in Acaollinsville, Oklahoma for $400. It had been setting for years and was full of mud dobbers and you name it.
I hauled the old truck back home on a trailer I borrowed from a buddy. I though it would make a great project for me and my son.
We just bought it to haul stuff but one thing lead to another and it's turning into a project with no end.
I don't really know the story behind it but this has been a labor of love, that's for sure.
We decided, since we are limited on funds, for this to just go for the rat rod look and we are now in the process of stuffing a 454 in it.The wheels are new, taken off of a '09 GMC pickup. They fit great and look good on it -- after about $100 worth of new lugs and spacers to make them fit.
We now have all new weatherstriping and seals in the cab and doors, etc. Behind that 454 engine is going to be a Saginaw 4 speed.
My son decided to draw Mr. Horsepower on the doors. Those that don't know about him think it's Woody Woodpecker.
We plan on taking it to as many shows as we can drive it to and just have fun with it.
