In the 2nd picture of the truck, you can see the paint on the roof is a little ate up from the sun. Since I plan to sell it soon, I decided to repaint the roof...



I sanded it down, shot it with a good epoxy primer, then just used basic enamel with a little hardner in it. Looks MUCH better in my opinion. Hoping my time and efforts will help it sell better.

The truck looks good but you sure are Bad with all the teaser shots of the Monty ,Chevelle and the OTHER truck project you didnt even mention .We need many more pics of each especially that 67-72 project truck .Dont know if youve seen my ramblings on here about my 72 short fleet that is stuck in the bodyshop now for 19 months ,man I miss my truck . Glad to see Im not the only one with too many toys but they sure are fun. I really would like to see more of your project truck and the others as well.

John, I will snap some pictures of the 67' truck tomorrow after work. It is in pieces now, finishing up all the rust repaint on the cab currently. And the frame is pretty much a rolling chassis. The bed and a few other parts are already painted.

The basic rundown on it... 67' cab and nose, 2000 LS1/4L60E, 2004 LQ4 intake manifold/PCM/DBW components, 78' T/A front sub frame and rear axle (10 bolt), custom box tube chassis, 95' step side bed, 17X8 Torque D's.

I could have sworn I have posted a picture of my Chevelle at least once... if not, here is the car before I pulled it apart to redo the chassis and drivetrain.

Must be the lighting... the Monte is actually code 75 Cranberry Red. My Chevelle is 1966 Danube Blue. I'll eventually get them both out in the sun and snap a better picture.

After another look I can see the Chevelle is blue but the Monty still looks orange but my 72 Chevy truck is being painted medium red and it looks orange in pics so it may just be the way the computer shows it but I still like it.

It could be yours, add it to your class of 72' collection.

Very unusual to see black vehicles in Florida.
