1moparman...I'm looking at your location and this truck spent most of its life in Lakeside. My grandpa who owned it 1st lived off of highway 67 at the Lakeside View Estates. This was back from the 70's up to the early 90's.

Geezz...I really should get some work done on this. I still have Old Blue and it's still sitting in the garage.

I'm looking for NOS blue interior parts, or pieces that look new. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Mike

Update....


Last January I road tripped to Tuscon with the Bee for the Roadkill Zip Tie Drags. It was 1800 miles round trip and was an absolute blast. I decide I wanted to get this truck done for the 2021 event. Now that Covid has canceled that event, I made a goal to have this truck on the road by Presidents Weekend so I can road trip it to see my Dad in Bullhead City, Arizona. This trip will be about 1100 miles round trip. I'm not planning to have the paint finished by but at least it will be on the road.

I began working on the body over the weekend. I'm going to spray it myself and hope for the best. Still planning to go with the factory medium blue over light blue two tone. I purchased all of the product to get the body done and boy was I shocked on how much this stuff cost. The base coat was over $300 a gallon.

I am close to finished with the drive line and chassis and it sure looks good with a 440 sitting there. I rebuilt the 440 using a 75' motor out of a W300 that had 53k original miles. After porting the heads, I added a larger camshaft (.466/.488 @ 224/234 with 114 * - advanced 4 degrees) and edelbrock performer intake. I'm going to use the stock exhaust manifolds for now. The 727 is rebuilt and ready to go. I bolted the 440/727 in about a week ago so I'm makiing pretty good progress at this point. Still looking for nice blue door panels if anyone has a set.

Make sure to write down notes on the sparying- ie gun inlet pressure, pattern width, distance of gun from sheet metal, etc. They can all make a difference in how the metallic lays down. It is easy to forget those things if there is much of a time in between painting different panels. Notes on thinners used and air temp in the shop would also help.

I spent the weekend finishing up the cab. With the help of my son in law, we were able to get it back on the chassis. I'm hoping to get things like the dash, steering column, and brakes completed while I smooth out the doors and front fenders. After setting the cab on the chassis, it seemed unbelievable that its going back together. I was just about to give up hope on it. I've done a lot of research regarding appling paint and I think I'm getting the hang of it. I'm hoping by the time I spray out the other panels, I'll have it dialed in perfect. Stay tuned....

That looks great, nice color combo, and looks like excellent quality work. up I've got a '79 Macho coming along at about the same state of completion:

Another update......The bed and some trim are all that are left. It's been so long since this truck was together, it seems like a dream having it this far.
