1965 Chevy 1/2-Ton
From Betuel :
Hello. My name is Betuel Tjiurutue from Namibia, Africa. I have been dreaming of restoring and driving an old car one day in my life as my Father was driving plenty of them. I thought that my dream would never come true. I didn't know if I even got one, it if would be possible to restore the way I should want it. This is because of the scarcity of the parts in Africa, especially in Namibia where I'm living.
After I learned of this Stovebolt Page, I started to see light at the end of the tunnel.
I bought my 1965 (not sure about the year) Chevy 1/2 ton in 2007. I can say the car is in a good condition and it's still running.
I don't have much background of this car. All that I know is the owner of this car was working for the Chevrolet agency in Namibia as a driver in the 1970's. When he passed away, his wife was not interested in the car any longer. So she put the car on sale.
It has the straight six engine is all that I can say.
I'm planning to do all the work myself but all this depends on the availability of the parts.
It will be highly appreciated if anybody out there can provide me with more info about this car.
I will send more pictures as I'm progressing with the project.
Well, Betuel, welcome to Stovebolt! I think with all the 1960 to 1966 Chevy and GMC trucks we have in here, you'll be able to get plenty of help. It's what we are all here for! So, ask away! (And glad to see you have already registered in the forums; excellent start!) ~ Editor
