  1. A while back we sold my old sierra to get an SUV to haul the kids around in. Having a pickup is something you miss though, so recently I was looking for a fun truck to drive around and take surfing, haul household trash, etc. I ended up getting my hands on a 1968 C20 longbed that someone gave a once-over to. The important stuff: 454 v8 with a three speed th400 auto transmission. The guy had dual purple hornies coming out right under the doors, SUPER loud and didn't smell great while driving it. I already took those off, put a flowmaster in and ran dual pipes out the sides behind the rear tires. My question is, what now? I had a mechanic look at it and there are minor issues. I'm going to go through it and replace every wet seal, gasket, and belt but beyond that there are a couple leaks, from the valve covers and it sounds like a leak from the carb. It's got an old Rochester carb on it, I'm thinking buy a new Holley 750 and be done with it. I'm also going to add a factory looking tach, new instrument panel bezel, and generally tighten things up. What else should I do? It's loud and first gear has plenty of torque, but it's not fast. One reason I want the tach is I had it on the freeway and felt like I was nuzzling the redline at 60mph. Is there an easy way to improve the top end? The bed is a layer of spray painted plywood screwed into the original wooden bed. I'd love to redo that, but the kits are pretty expensive and it looks like a lot of 50 year old bolts that would need to be blowtorched. Is it possible to shore up the original bed and spray it with a rhino liner or something? Any other ideas?
  2. Hello all, I go by Dirk, I currently live in Nebraska... yeah, another Nebraska guy. After 27 years, I am back into Chevrolets, and I have purchase two Chevy trucks this year, only they are 50 years apart! Just bought my 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HIgh Country (5.3/RWD) and; In March I purchased a 1964 Chevrolet C20 Fleetside which I currently have stripped down to the frame in my garage with a crap ton of boxes of parts to start my build on it! Look forward to learning a lot from this forum, and maybe meeting some of you someday!
