About

This was my Dad's truck that he bought about 5 years ago to restore.He loved the styling of the 1967-72 Chevs and in particular '67 & '68.The truck came with a fair bit of new and used parts as someone else was gonna restore her when they retired but when that day came they decided to do something else.Unfortuanely Dad passed on suddenly in March of 2006 and i inherited the truck and dad's dreams for it.I estimate somewhere in the neighbourhood of $5000 worth of parts have since been purchased by me to do the job right,however i have not had time to do anything with it yet other then front clip removal as i sold the 230 6 cyl and three speed tranny out of her.Someday i hope to be driving her but occasionally i get depressed thinking about it as it seems with caring for mom i never get a chance to do anything with it as there is always something else needing to be done,where is Chip Foose and Overhaulin' when you need them?LOL!
