More pictures of my old truck

From Jon :

I purchased this old Advance Design Chevy truck from someone who started it, but did not finish it. When I bought it, the frame was boxed, the engine and transmission were installed and the wiring was laying there in a big knot. Just the cab was installed, no interior, no glass.

It took me two trips with a trailer to bring all the parts home. My wife thought I was crazy "again" since I have done this several times before.

After six months fixing the normal bugs, re-doing things I did not like, beating out fenders, walking countless junk yards, purchasing all the necessary items like chrome, seats, engine parts, Grand Prix steering column, etc., I finally finished it.

The truck has a 4.3 V6 engine, 700R4 transmission, Monte Carlo front clip, dropped spindles, Lokar floor shift, and many other trick items. I built the rear pan myself and the oak floor. It took me from June 2009 to December 2009 to complete.

This is going to be a daily driver.
