Any One Have a old Car or Truck / In the Works

If you do ,please share some photos of it ,,I like old classics no matter what Make they are..

This is one that I have in the shop and am slowwwly getting it togeather.. The truck is a 72 Chevy short bed with a 402 BB and a beafed up 350 Tranny in it . both with fresh rebuilds

I took the gas tank out from behind the seat and put a Blazer tank in at the rear ,,so now I am on to installing gas lines to it.
I am waiting for some new parts to come and then will get the grille and also the bed bed back on it .. Lots more to do ,,but what the heck ,,it's a lot of fun doing it ..

These trucks came both ways but the leafs are rarer.. As for lowering these trucks ,, coils are easier to do it and this 72 has coils.

Cool coils with stiffer control arms will perform better. I like that bigblock torque.

Thanks Chris for sharing and from your story and knowing how you loved the truck you got rid of ,,then I hope you can apprectiate the next picture I am about to share of this truck I put togeather first before the 72 .

Just like you ,,my love is for this 1971 Super Cheyenne short bed with AC ,Tach,,Tilt wheel ,,PB but not power steering ,,and it does have rear leaf Springs ,,numbers matching 350 -350 ..

I will sell the 72 but never this 71 .. hope my 71 brings back good memories for you even though it is not the hugger orange like you had .. GP

That,s the truck. Very impressive. Some day I will bite the bullet and get another one. I forgot mine had factory tilt too. Ya know I really appreciate you posting that pic for me to check out.
I think the next one I get will be clean but not so clean that I won't want to use it a little.
