Just wanted to send along some photos of my 1970 Chevy truck. When I bought her in ’82, she was a yellow and white 2 wheel drive shortbed, but very clean. In ’84, I built her into a 4×4, put a solid white paint job on her, fixed a few mechanical problems, then drove the piss out of her until 4 years ago, when I decided to retire and restore her. That would be a complete frame-off restoration.

Except for the upholstery job, I did all the work in my shop. Kept the 350 tranny and rebuilt it. Had a nearly new 400 small block, went through it and, of course, added some beans. Factory gears, out, in with gold ol’ 373’s.

Anyway, I think you get the gist. Wanted to thank all concerned the help with parts and supplies.


George Custer
