Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

Thanks you guys.
Next I will finish mounting the cab, and put the 73 bed on. Before I mount the cab I have to weld up the part that I cut, and also I had to slice the floor under the seat because the frame was hitting the bottom of the floor. I'll make 2 small tunnels to clear the frame.

STAY TUNED

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

Thanks again everybody.

I didn't work on it at all today.

I think next I should mount the cab to the frame. I thought of cutting off the front cab mounts from the bent 73 frame and weld them on the side of the frame for the rear cab mounts.

Keep checking in.

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

I just finished the modifying back of the cab. I made 2 tunnels to cover the frame where I dropped the cab down. Then I welded up the back of the cab where I notched it.

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

Thanks Bones & Ranch.

It's a nice door..HUH I was wondering when someone would notice the posters. Here's some of the other posters I have around.


Here's the door your talking about.


This is her front.







I hope I'm not breaking any rules here by posting the posters.

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

OK back to work. Didn't do much today. On MY truck that is. All I did was put some seam sealer on the welds, and primmer it.

You sound like my wife.
Actually I finished rebuilding the right side suspension on that Stude I'm also working on. I replaced the A Arm bushings, replaced the needle bearings in the King pins. Cleaned & sand blasted the left side suspension parts, and painted them. This one pays my bills.
I'm doing the left side today.

All I saw where girls. You have a truck in that garage too?

Nice work thanks for sharing because everytime I see things like this it tells me I'm lazy and I need to get out side and work on mine too.

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

I rolled out the shortened frame with the cab on it so I could trial fit the bed & front end sheet metal. All I did was hang it on. Then I rolled in back in the shop & on the lift so I could make it all fit better, and make sure it all lined up. Like wheels where they belong i the middle of the wheel wells, also the cab to fender fit, and the 73 bed fitting with the 65 cab.



I almost forgot. I found (2) 7X15 Cragar wheels in really good condition for $150.00. I had some used tires that I installed on them. LOOKS REALLY GOOD.

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

Here's how it looks now with it shimmed up, aligned & bolted up. I wish I could roll it outside again for a better picture, but the friends are gone now. It's still just temporary. I had to do it so I could sleep at night. I was worried if I measured correctly. AND I DID!!! Now all the body lines line up, and everything fits perfect. I had some friends over to help lift it all on. That's why I did it now and not later, but I'm glad I did. Like I said, now I can sleep good knowing that there wouldn't be any problems with the fit. I love the way the 73 Bed looks with the 65 Cab. So far I'm real happy with the way it's coming out.

Re: 1965/73 Cheap Build Up

Thanks Allan. It's all coming apart again to do more frame clean up, fire wall holes, install power steering box, and column. Not to mention the engine & trans.

It's time to watch TV now. It's only 8:15 PM here. I'm not that old yet.
