Cheers Luke.Everything on this truck is big and heavy.
There are 2 bits of rust on the whole truck and they are only 6" long by 1" wide on the rear bed.It does help getting one from a dry state in the usa,as i have seen some that are very very rotten.
It has flowmaster exhausts fitted at the moment but will be removing the boxes for extra loudness lol.
ps its a small block v8,

That's gonna look the nuts when it's finished, I can see that you've put a lot of hours in so far, we do classic American resto's at work and it's very time consuming to get it right, keep up the top work & keep the pics coming

Love it! Got a real soft spot for stepside's! What's it like sourcing parts for them? Do you have to look to the states for everything or is it a case of fabbing stuff up?

Always starts with good intentions.

Plenty of Weiand blowers on eBay. 4 inch belt. Screaming

Currently helping a friend with a 63 Chev (One with the funny doors)

Factory 4x4 with matching numbers. Should be worth a few $$$ when done
