I purchased my truck in August of 2008. It was hot rodded many years ago and was/is in need of a lot of attention. It is planned to be a long term project, working on it as a hobby during my semi-retirement. An original "straight 6 - 3 on the tree" truck it now has a 1970 350 V-8 and "4 on the floor" 1965 Muncie car transmission shifted via a Hurst '57 Chevy Passenger car shifter. When I bought the truck it had a 67-72 stepside bed on it. I have since swapped out the fenders for the correct 58-66 style. The dash was in bad shape when purchased so it now has a 1967 Camaro dash that I stretched to fit the width of the cab. I have also customized the grille to feature (5) stainless horizontal tubes instead of the stock cheese grater look. Wheels are aluminum slots all around, 15 x 8-1/2's in the rear with 33x12.5x15 Goodyear Rubber. I widened the bed (not the fenders)4 inches for additional tire clearance and so the bed overall width matches the front overall width. You can find more details on my build thread at http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/showthread.php?t=363509

I read through your thread on the other forum. You do nice work! I wish I had even a fraction of your talent!!

Your dash looks like it came from the factory that way. Nice work!! And I like the '64 Impala taillights.

I was hoping that the staff here could delete my build thread reference to the 67-72 website from my gallery post. I moved my build thread here: http://talk.classicparts.com/showthread.php?t=13928

Thanks for your help.

Bump....

And the "More pictures of my old truck" isn't correct anymore either.

Thanks for your help.

John,

Sorry, I did not see this until just now. The best way to get hold of me is at editor@stovebolt.com.

I can change this around tomorrow when I'll be working on the site most of the day.

Since the Gallery page is three years old, I'll pull a few details from your thread to update it a bit and include those links to your specific build details.

Sorry the week has turned into two. I'm updating it all now and changing out your picture. I picked a few things from your build thread to make an update for the main Gallery.
