'64 C20 Long Bed, Because I Didn't Have Enough WIPs

Recommended Posts

Some progress on the C20.  Between working (employment), a 1:1 truck project, and now spring yardwork (not complaining about spring), time is hard to come by.  I've been working on paint and weathering on the hood, bed and roof.  Since I had to start over with a different cab, I haven't painted it yet.  I painted and assembled the interior.  My old truck that I am basing this off of was converted to a Turbo 400 automatic when the 425 nailhead was installed, and they used a Mustang shifter.  The closest thing I could find was a piece of the console and the shifter from the MPC '73 Mercury Cougar that I previously robbed a roof from.  Close enough for me.  Pictures below are a halffast mockup without wheels... just fitting things together to get an idea of how it will look.

This just might be the best seat cover I've ever seen! Reeeeeally nice texture and authenticity there, Roy!



Thank you Alan.  I found a catalog online and took a screenshot of a seat cover & scaled it to fit, printed and white glued it to the seat.  A little pastel rubbed in made it look used,

I agree great looking interior..

Thanks guys.  The color looks a little darker in the picture, but I think it's pretty close.  It might be a tad brassy, but it'll work.
