A 'virtual garage' of antique Chevy & GMC trucks from around the World
1965 Chevy C-20 3/4-Ton Stepside
10 March 2008
From Cuyler :
I found my 1965 C-20 Chevy in the news paper. It was located about an hour's drive away in Wyoming, Pennsylvania. I picked her up for $600. The odometer reads 66,000 miles and that will be a set number till I can get her back on the road.
I really like the look of the 1960-66 models. I did have a '66 C-10 for a year and a half about five years ago. I could kick myself now for selling it. I put a lot of work into that one -- with the swap to a Suburban master cylinder, finding a new gas pedal and a shifter for the four wheel drive and tranny, then hand bending the brake lines, and what a treat the tangle of wiring was. Here is a before and and after picture.
So to date on my new gal ”Baby” I have installed new cab floor mounts, floor boards, cab corners, kick panels and rocker panels. I’ve also painted the cab and put in bucket seats. I still have to get her brake work done and drop a tranny into the box. Here's a picture from the front.
She will be driven three out of the four seasons. Down the road, I was thinking maybe painting her red and white or green. I have not decided for sure yet. I do know that I’d like to get some chrome smoothies.
Take it easy,
