A 1968 Chevy Short Bed Gets Remade


It all started with a visit to my wife’s parents…

My father-in-law (who was 84 at the time) and I were having a conversation about his truck; he said he was going to take his old truck to the dump! He had bought it new in 1968. But now it hardly ran and was on its last legs. I let him know that I really wanted his truck, as it was a classic; and if he gave it to me, I promised him I would fix it up. He agreed, and on my next trip down to visit, I took my flatbed trailer and hauled the truck 1,000 miles to my home in Idaho.
