Re: how about a "SHINY" shop truck ?

With your truck I`d keep it somewhat original,period-correct,with a touch of spice.
1:Lower mildly as you wanted to
2:Keep the wheels and tires.Paint wheels or just lip red and get full wheelcovers.That`s the ole boy way with wheels and tires.Could use the later 69-72s or choise earlier Chevy car ones,like the 15" SS covers,61-66.Those 65-66s look awesome and were popular to swap..
3:Maybe a couple/few choice vintage decals.I`d go for a days gone by Dragstrip decal for sure if nothing else.
4:Red tonneau
5:I`d want split headers and duals out the back,too.

This is something a guy might have done back in this era.Would have been an adult born before WWII in his 30s.The guys that were king of the rod & racing scene in the late 60s/early 70s.
This sounds like a good idea!
