Yep, cars are a little different in California.

Yep, things are different here in sunny California. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the life out in South and Mid west where you wouldn't find stuff like this. But the cars, they are totally different here. This truck is all original, paint, int, 47,000 original miles. It is a 1967 and has for as long as I remember been parked on a street in neighborhood. The guy put it up for sale a number of months ago and I guess it didn't sell. This morning I see it out on another street (still a very little traffic street, what the hell is he thinking?). It says it has new tires, clutch, rad. It has almost zero rust, what you see is NOT coming out from the inside, it is surface rust. I see no rust thru what so ever on it. Look at the rocker, you can see each spot weld in the original paint! I am soooooooo temped to buy this thing and drive it everyday. But I still haven't forgotten the wonderful feeling I had when I first bought the SHO I am driving with a/c and all the power goodies after driving a 65 Skylark without them for years. Summers coming and that a/c would be sorely missed.

Anyway, the asking price for this super solid little truck.....$2000 or best offer! And please don't delete this thread, I am NOT selling this truck.

Brian

A set of wheels and some paint would make that a low budget beauty! I'd be tempted to turn it for a profit if I were you, Brian, that's a great deal. Dan

Throw some bags under her, New treads, and she would be a good parts chaser for the shop. It probably has a straight 6 which would be decient gas milage. um

That's a VERY good starting point for a project! It may be on a side street because he really doesn't want to let her go.

As for buying it and selling it for a quick profit? Hard to resist, but that looks like a truck I would fall in love with and end up keeping and I'm not a truck guy.

I say scoop her up, then decide what to do with her. You can't lose.

Oh yes baby, I see what this truck is. It would be SUPER KILLER truck if you wanted a starting point for a full on show quality truck. OR just the same if you wanted a quickie daily driver, this baby is a peach. I MUCH, MUCH rather have a truck like this than some quickie painted chrome thrown on mystery machine that "looks" good. This thing is VIRGIN and a super find. I have thought about it, like I say, I would miss that a/c. Plus, I already have a pickup bed utility trailer half built that I need to finish, a car in the garage to paint, a thousand items of my buddies to sell for him (along with a 57 Chevy h/t that is nicer than this truck) AND my 48 Chevy pickup that I am collecting parts for when I am done with all this other crap!

No, I am afraid to look at this truck any more, take it way dude, please!

Yes Bob, it does have a 250 inch six in it, I just opened the hood. Nice original stovebolt with a four speed. You can't kill this bad boy with a bag of sand in the oil.

I need to call the number on the truck and tell him to move the damn thing to some other street so I won't be seeing it.

That is a FOREVER truck.

That is just what I need for running around just a little sip of gas here & there.

LOL It sounds like we need to pass the hat and take donations to buy it, then have a contest to see who gets it!

I'm in for $20. 99 more members to go!

Black-plate original. Why does stuff seem to show up everywhere when you don't need it? I'm really tempted to drive up there and get it if you don't. Solid, basically rust-free trucks are disappearing fast, with many going overseas!!!! Some new gearing, paint, wheels, ya got it. I've even seen outrageous intakes and turbos for those old 6-ers. Make it a sleeper that would be good on gas.
I'll mention this to cute lil wifey and if she doesn't me I'll PM ya for the #.

You wouldn't happen to be in the Dixon area, would you? I swore I saw that truck when I was in the area a month or so ago! Not that I'm interested--I live in Wisconsin and have too many projects as is. But you should get it, man! Keep it stock, just add discs, an HEI, a nice exhaust, and paint!
