Chopped 64 chevy truck

Post by 4x4fab.com on November 8th 2009, 11:56 pm

Well, picked up a new toy over the weekend. It's need's some work, but has had a ton of work done to it. I was originally looking for somethin I could build from the ground up. But, I realized I don't have too much free time to do it. Here's the specs;
64' chevy 1/2 ton that's been chopped ~5-6 inches
350 with a gear drive, cam, shorty headers, new deomon carb on a high rise intake.
350 turbo with a shift kit, slap shifter
The diff is open, maybe a limited slip. Both wheels spin the tires and it'll go sideways shiftin into 2nd, but i jacked it up, and it isn't locked. Not sure on the gear ratio yet, but it seams to be a pretty low gear.
The windhshield is lexan, and I plan to cut some glass for it. Also, the door glass needs to be cut.
I got a bunch of airride stuff with the truck. Tank, compresor, solenoids, random brackets, 4 bags, bunch of wiring and airlines. I plan to install airride and a wood bed. I'll update this thread as I make progress. For now, I plan to drive the truck until that snow starts to fall, then I'll get busy fixin a little bit of rust and POR-15 the frame and underside of the bed.

A few pics to show you how I got it.....

That looks like the truck that was up to the Blacktop Bash.

Hmm, it could have been. The PO said he drove it to a show recently.

Gettin new door glass This saturday. I've already ordered a new windshield and found a glass shop that will cut it. I figured for ~$100 it wasn't worth trying to cut it myself. I'll make a template and mark the windshield and drop it off to them.

Then, I'd like to install the airride. I have just about everything I need for it. I'm kinda debating on how much to notch the frame. I'm not too much into the whole "layin frame" thing and I "do" want a bed floor and i defenitely don't want it raised too high. As the truck sits now, the axle is on the bump stops keeping it from contacting the frame.

After that, I'd like to put a bed floor in it. I'm not certain, but I'll probably go with wood.

I plan to atleast preasure wash the frame and hit it with a wire wheel, then some POR-15. I could possibly pull the cab off and sand blast the frame, but I dunno if I wanna get "that" involved in it right now. I've also got a two-wheeled project goin on, http://www.thegsresources.com/_forum/showthread.php?t=147423

There is a very small amount of rust that needs attention on the rocker and also a small area under the cab.

Other than that, I don't really know what direction it will take. It will stay flat black atleast till next spring, and likely for a long time. I'll probably put some baby moons and whitewalls on it. I need a much wider rear tire. Eventually, she'll need some help in the interior dept.

Anyone get's too bored, they can come help.....

This was taken by me at the Blacktop Bash right before you got your truck. If you watch real close, you can hit pause your truck is sitting in the lot. Right when the T bucket almost gets off the screen you will see it. Man that was a good show....

This is the name of the shop sign I found under my seat,
Maish Body Shop
8155 State Route 121 N
New Paris, OH 45347
937-437-0822

Anyone heard of them? I wonder if it's possible they chopped my truck. I'd like to find out as much info as I can.
