From Terry :

           This is my 1964 Chevy Shortbed Stepside. I purchased this truck nine months ago from a college kid. It had a 292 4 speed granny and a bed full of parts. It ran but had problems. However, I only paid $1300 for it!

           I had to sacrifice a 1952 Chevy Styleline Deluxe (third owner, very clean car), to afford to do this truck the right way. So, I sold the '52 to my younger Brother and tore down the '64.

           I put a built 350 / 350 and did a partial frame off resto. I lowered 3" in the rear, 2.5" in the front. I did the interior myself.

           The color is Sherwin Williams Omaha Orange / base-clear. We actually mixed the base and clear together and it gave it a pearlish look.

           It was lots of late nights in the garage. Lots of help from friends.

           These are not the most recent pics, but here are some: rear view / bed / interior from driver's side / neat pix of the tailgate and bumper / interior from passenger's side / engine / spread open. I have more pictures on my Photobucket account. I have added lots of custom pin stripping, a kick butt sound system, and window tint.

           One of the most difficult things I did was to change all rubber, all window components including wing windows. What a pain, but what a difference.

           We are lucky here in Kansas City. We have Chevy Duty and Long Motor Company right down the street from each other.

           My future plans are to line the engine compartment with powder coated polished aluminum, and front disc brakes, and corvette rallies.
