I'm not going to tell my best friend; since 1962 and when it is "finally" done ????? Drive to his home in O.C. and blow him away.

I'm bummed the craigslist add is down. I'll post what I have on Tuesday ( my next scheduled day off / I always have problems w/pics when I try to post on our forum)

I don't want Mr Frscke1 to be an " UNbeliever " and ask for my birth certificate ! smile chevy

HUH!? You bought this time capsule to paint it?!

If I kept the color I wouldn't be able to do my original 1974 G10 shorty. Pearl white ; with blue; red and purple hues of Pearl. Mickey Thompsons all around ( N50s in the rear) ; Deep Dish Chrome USA Mags; Doug Thorley show tubes.

The dash and dog house where black with High back swivels; black vinyl with the insets cloth with hues of blue and black. Only pop out windows. The interior cargo roof had very dark blue with black hawaiin orchids with blinking lighting under Material and I had curtains to match. The walls where very "thick" Diamond Tuck with big buttons and where accented in a frame network with a light viking blue shag .
No Bed; triple padding on floor with samre shag ( I'm a drummer and hauled my kit and my bass players gear tghru the years. Semi built 350 motor with just the right tone.

*****The "Outside" option #2. Keep the Spanish Gold with some type of Metal Flake (?) Gold Flames; Keep the seats and restore the dash to pristine; do the same interior with the thick black tuck n' roll with big gold buttns in same framework with the right gold colr shag; same overhead material but with a very dark colored same material with same hawaiin Orchids and matching curtains. Keep the rims; 2" (?) spindle drop; Thorley show tubes and same engine build.

I have away; some say I should do an LS swap. The engine has no miles and would be a shame not to build it; fuel injected and a 700R trans.

What to do. Gotta go at work. cool chevy

That’s my dream. My current one to cruise, a second one to cram a tunnel ram onto the 302 and stroke it out to 347, 4 mpg around town. 😂


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

samhain; I bought it for how straight and clean it is; Original owner with 36,241 Original miles and California Van. Dude; the build sheet looks new as well as the jack with the Factory instructions.
I had a 1967 ; a 1971 and my favorite 1974G10 Shorty. It was a stock no window ; except pop outs with a V8 & auto,

I did the same thing and took my time to make it a beauty. At one point I actually sold it and bought it back a year later. I truly know where you are coming from;
but in my heart I believe I will re-incarnate my original 1974. I was so proud of it and have so many good memories. It's worth it to me. Peace Out smile chevy
