Cody P 67
 Cody brought me his rig to finish off some items that the previous owner had intentions to. I did the previous work to it, then Cody bought it and brought it back to me. This was one of the most rust free trucks I've worked on....SWEET..


    This is how it showed up, simple.. really nice 67  31's, 289, 3 spd,


 stripped the inside, changed the floors and off she went...until phase 2.....


   phase 2...pulled engine to change a rear main....that ended up cleaning and coating engine compartment, and complete under side, cleaning and updating motor, and swapping out the 3 spd for a c4 auto. then, cleaning and coating the interior..

wthat came out really nice....it's nice working with rigs that are already in good shape!!!
fresh dash

        SWEET...........................................................


the final addition this phase was a 79 tilt column.


    next phase, stripping it down for all the new panels, new fenders, grille, doors, tailgate, and of course, assembling everything to make sure it all fits when it comes back from the painter!!


  back from the painter, looks very good!! now the careful " fun" part....

   adding grill mouldings, letters and lights, now dis is fun sh***T !!!

   painter made some "inventive" ideas removing the dash.... then added the windshield frame, dash and bulkhead..had to remove the seats to add carpet


 added disc brakes, 3.5" suspension, glasses, felts door handles...all the "stuff"


    still needing a few small items to be finished, it came out great!! thanks Cody it was a fun build!!
