Chevrolet Titan barn find

Recommended Posts

Here is the old Chevrolet Titan that started out as a falling apart old built model. I cleaned it up and scavenged the missing parts to put it back together.  I wanted to keep it in as close to original as I could. This makes a total of six trucks and three trailers in my fleet.

Thanks for following.

Thanks everyone,  it is fun to save them when you can. I have a few from an old friend that I need to figure out how to scrub cooking grease off of without ruining them

Yes, and in my sorting of parts I found an almost complete GMC Astro with turbine.  I compared all the pieces to the instructions and it all matches up. I also have a Junkyard dog in like condition.  I think these are headed to ebay. ?

I love Astros, they'd still look modern today, huge glass area giving great visibility. Far ahead of it's time. This is a great specimen, well done!

Nice save! It’s a great looking truck. 

X2. I'd be curious to see what mine look like today, wherever it is...

I remember those uniquely panted rims when I was at your house sorting truck parts. I enjoyed the visit.

Very nice. I'm working on one of these right now too. Gonna put a car hauler behind it when it's all said and over.

Try using over cleaner or soaking them in super Clean to get the grease off. Of course this will remove the paint and chrome plating too.
