Hey guys love the site have been reading a lot. tons of cool bugs

on here and really talented people.


My plan to get a baja involves a 1964 GMC fleet side truck i have been

working on it since i was about 16 I'm 20 now at first i worked on it very

little. fixing body/minor engine work but here recently i have really ripped

into it the whole body is disassembled just frame engine and cab are on it

now i have started a body drop the hole floor is gone it was all rotten so

I'm to the point now of cleaning everything up putting a new floor in and

putting it back together.


Well you might be wondering what this has to do with a baja well i want

one more then this truck but i have a truck in my shop in pieces so i need

to finish it up before i start a new project I'm sure everyone has at one

point looked at all there stuff and said shoot i need to stop starting so many

projects. but the good news about that is I'm going to put the truck up for

sell when I'm done and guess what I'm buying with the money:)


I would like to start a project page of my truck on AZ baja from my point

now to finished truck and then the bug i get with the money. didn't think

you guys would mind. maybe ill ask you guys some questions you haven't

had to think about in a while.


will be taking pictures and uploading them soon

thanks guys!

You could aways move the engine to the rear use a Corvete center section for IRS. Mid engine Chey rail. Smile

Looks like you have been busy. Are you going to have to use a 70s style cross flow radiator for hood clearance?
