Dragin' Rust, 65 Chevy build

Post by Reb Stew on August 20th 2015, 6:36 pm

New into the shop is this cool 65 pickup owned by Danny Walter. This is going to be a fun build.


Bill towed it over.


Little rig is from out west and was bought and brought out here as a parts car. After looking at it he didn't want to rip it apart so he sold it, bought it back later and now has bit the bullet to make it one tough truck.

Truck has never been messed with. Even the engine has all the spark plug wire guards and everything in place the way it came from the factory

It would shock you at how nice this thing is. I have been all over it. Has a small stress crack in the radiator support(easy fix) but everything else, even the rubber body mounts are nice. All the bolts came out like they had been laying in WD40 for 10 years. Never broke or stripped any bolt and everything came apart like a hot knife through butter.

It had a battery. I took it out before the picture. I didn't try to start it. He said it ran just not real good. It will be lowered about a foot or 2 Smile

Front end is just mocked up. Still have to go through everything. Blew me away when I seen how it was going to sit. Had to slap it together to just get a look see. Back end is still not done so it's pushing everything forward of the wheels down. As it sits the bumper is rock solid on the ground Smile

We took a tape measure and did a before picture to see how low it went down. After getting the back end done we pulled it out to see. I guess there is no real reason to show you the before picture. It's low. Smile
