My new truck:
1962 Chevy C-Series stepside pickup truck.
The engine isn't original. It's one of the ubiquitous small block Chevy V-8's (350 cubic inch displacement).
I bought it on Friday. Total cost (including TT&L) was less than $1,000.
What I've done so far (with help from Candice):
* Clean up the cab
* Give it a bath
* Install 2 lap belts
* Change oil, oil filter
* Change air filter
What I plan on doing sometime in the future:
* Install 60's era steering wheel
* Install rack and pinion steering
* Repair gas leak
* Move gas tank underneath bed (right now, the gas tank is right behind the bench seat!)
* Redo all electronic lines
* Get all lights working
Other projects are on the list (including lots of body work), that's just some of the big things I can think of now. I'll give updates as I work on it. Should be fun and a great learning experience! My goal is to restore the truck to what it looked like in '62, but with a few improvements in safety, performance, and comfort.
