    Everything is out of a junkyard or parts I had layin' around, cup holder is out of a '95 beretta, shifter was free from a buddy, steering wheel i re-dyed out of a '87 monte carlo SS, tach was a freebee, toggle panel out of a ford conversion van, hood vents off a '68 big block camaro, front end is '60 apachie an hood.. Have some 60's that will drop the front another 1 or 1-1/2".. A kid up the road from me crashed his old '67 stepside chevy that I'm after the bed...

    Not gasser porn, but it's truck porn, had a hole in my cab floor you could throw a cat through.. it being my rat rod beater I just whipped up a quick patch and fixed it, took me about 45 minutes and about a $1.00 worth of supplys (I low buck everything).. If it were a restore or show truck I would have fixed it where you couldn't tell it, but it's not the floor will just get some splatter paint later... Safety always comes first so I wrapped a wet towel around the end of the gas tank before I did any welding...

    I'll take that as a compliment.. Y'all love it when I take an old barrel, back of an old woodstove or a set of mobile home bedrails and work my magic :rr:

    They are engine and drivetrain wise, If I built a pre-'73 step side bed from an aftermarket parts catalog it would cost between $2,500 an $3,000.... Value wise nice pre-'73 Chevys go for more then ford and Dodge on average...
