From Randy: 

       Hey guys (and gals) here's the latest update on my '65 Chevy pickup. It's slowly coming along. Just thought you might want an update.

       All the rust is gone and new meatal in. Now comes the EASY part, right? After each indivicual body part is dissassembled, repaired, smoothed and repainted, we'll start the re-assembly. My bodyman swears this is the BEST-EST way to get it right. So we'll see!

       It's in the midst of getting a new bed (wood), all new rubber EVERYTHING, hinges, bumpers, grill, quarters, inner fenders, rad-support and many many other new parts.

From Randy:

       Hey guys! Here's my latest old truck acquistion. I've got a lot of work ahead as the floor and body are a bit rusty, but I have a friend that can and does fix ANYTHING and he has assured me that this is a very solid and fixable truck.

       It's a '65 1/2-ton with a little 250-6 (WITH working air!!) and had a muncie car 4-speed and hurst shifter in it. But we swapped that for an original truck 4-speed and next I'm going for some lower 3.?? rear gears to eak a little speed out of it.

       This fall and winter it's going to serve as my hunting truck. Next summer, it will be put to an original color after the bodywork is done.

       I'm real excited to get going on it and can't wait until it's back to looking stock again. I traded the chrome wheels on it for a nice set of old standards and '55 Chevy hubcaps and now it has a much more basic look (just what I'm after!).

       Neat forum, I've really enjoyed using it so far!
