Great looking truck. These trucks are fun too. My dad had a mustard yellow 72 3/4 ton camper special with a 402 and automatic. That thing was so fun to drive but you could literally watch the fuel gauge go down while smoking the tires :angry:

Thanks Wheels.

Thanks Brian, That's the Grey Chevy you gave me, My grandfather always had beautiful trucks my dad has told me, most were GMC's, I think I get it from him.

School out, Nick? You've been busy building and getting better. This one looks good.

No Jim, these are some of my builds from the 4 months my camera was busted, also that's the grille you gave me, But thank you.

Nick, I'm curious . Why would you want a "Small Back Window " cab . They were in reality too small to work with . Thats the main reason you never ever saw them . In 1970, you got the "Big " window regardless. Ed Shaver

Ed to tell you the truth I have a thing for the small back window trucks, I prefer them to a Big back window, not sure why, I just know that I do. And Ed '68 was the last year you could get a small back window, that I know for sure.

Great looking Truck.
haven't seen one with a small rear window b-4.
It's sure is different.
Out side of the side mirrors being a bit too low to use.

It looks Great..
Great job..

Thanks, funny enough those mirrors were as close to the factory style as I could find and they were mounted pretty far down on the real trucks I have pictures of.
