I know this isn't exactly squarebody related, but I have recently begun making and selling 67-72 Chevy/GMC truck cab corner 6x9 speaker brackets. Click HERE for more information.
I recently acquired this exceptionally nice 1975 Silverado. This is a pretty rare and loaded truck, that I am enjoying tremendously. To see more pictures and learn all about it, click HERE.
Squeezed a little garage time in recently, made some good interior progress...I can now see light at the end of the tunnel! Key accomplishments were the installation of the headliner (recovered) and trim (re-painted), carpet (ACC), bucket seats (which were recovered and are now heated), center console (restored), rear cab panel (custom built and upholstered to match headliner), painted speaker brackets (available here on the site!) w/speakers, lower dash gauges, and a ton of wiring. Currently I am wrapping up the floor shifter (B&M) and base install (custom made), and will move on to the remote entry system (Spal), one piece window install, and then the door panels with factory 79-80 door speaker package. I hope to have more updates soon. All of this can be seen on the interior page of my truck build up.
Random 73-87 related stuff. First up, Bearfoot article...one of my favorite monster trucks growing up in the 80's..when they actually looked like trucks and simply went out and crushed cars. Next, one of the worst trends of the early 80's...round to square headlight conversions! Enjoy these, similar info can be found on this page.
One of the things I love about reading old issues of truck magazines are the vintage ads featuring, what was new at the time, 73-87 GM trucks. Whether you enjoy seeing these trucks in their former glory, or searching for a manufacturer of an item currently on your truck, these advertisements can be both enjoyable and educational to look at. I have an entire page full of these advertisements that I have come across and uploaded to the site. Below are the most recent additions to that page.
80 Started going thru my archived collection of various truck related magazines, publishing any 73-87 related ones I come across here on 73-87.com. Most were scanned from Classic Trucks and Custom Classic Trucks, my two favorite "truck" magazines. Click the thumbnail below to be taken directly to the article, or visit the garage and browse to the appropriate section to see them, and MANY more. I will have quite a few of these over the next couple weeks, so check back soon to see the rest.
Looking for some 73-87 related decorations for your garage, or even house? Well, I recently designed and began making square body key (or hat/coat) racks. As of March 5th 2011, they are now available for everyone, but in limited quantities. These are made of heavy 16 gauge steel, come bare (ready for your customization and paint), and include wall mounting hardware and instructions. Measurements vary depending on style, but they are approximately 12" x 12" on average. If you would like to purchase one (or more) of these, the price is $40 shipped to your door (continental United States, extra anywhere else) and you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to order. Please specify which style you would like when contacting me. Made in the USA!
Note: The bottom of the key racks look curved in the photos, but rest assured, they are perfectly straight.
