From Davey:

         This is a '67 Chevy truck that I recently bought. We've done some front end work so far, as well as adding shocks for all four wheels. Fixed what is hopefully only a small electrical problem. Radio isn't working. Need an antenna. All gauges need to be replaced. More money.

         It has a 350 engine with a 350 Turbo and what we think is a 4:10 gear. Really moves! It has 10" Rally wheels with low profile tires. I expect to replace the tires as soon as I can afford to.

         The coil springs have apparently been heated to lower the chassis. My Techie has a set of springs that he thinks will work on this truck to get it back to sitting at the proper height. Both of these things will cost close to another $1000. More money.

         Techie has an original GM chrome trim kit which he "thinks" will work on this truck. Otherwise, I will fill the holes and paint it. [ Rear photo ]

         The heater fan isn't blowing. I don't know yet if it's a fuse or something else. I'll find it.

         The interior is in fairly decent condition. The bench seat is okay but I'd rather have buckets. Some time down the road on that. The weatherstripping and channels for both doors need to be replaced. I don't have a key for the door locks so I can either buy a complete set of locks / ignition that use a matching key, or maybe find a Master Key for the door locks. Time will tell.

         The body is in really pretty good shape for a '67. A few dents inside the bed box. The front right corner has a lot of rust and bondo at the lower side. I intend to replace both the fender and the fender well. Someone has done quite a bit of sanding and patching here and there. A bit more is needed. Inside the bed box needs some serious attention. I'll get on that when weather gets better. I know there's some serious rust under the driver's side door. Not in the door itself. I don't know what you call this piece. It needs filling or replacing.

         All lights seem to work ok, as well as the wipers. This truck has parts on it from so many different year models that I can never expect to try and restore it to "original condition." I'm just gonna build it as I go, and as money and time permit.

         Her name is Venus. She will be silver with a black interior. That's all I really know for now.
