    The 1300 mile/27hr road trip to VA produced another project for me to dig into. :laugh:
    Brought home a 67 panel w/72 front clip.
    Pretty good shape, looks fairly solid.
    2wd, 350/350

    This will become my work truck.
    I'm currently using the white burb in the pic but she's way tired.
    I'll swap over the panel body to the 3/4 ton 4x4 burb chassis.

    Anyway, thought I'd share. ;)

    [No, that's not my Dodge]

    Unfortunately the burb is done. :frown1: It's lived it's life and will be parted out to other old chevy trucks so that they will go on.
    It was way tired when I got it but I managed to get another 3000 miles out of it since last winter.
    I'll be using the best parts of the two to build one good dependable 3/4 ton 4x4 panel truck. :)

    Good Old Trucks

    Filled the fluids, threw in a battery and drove it under it's own power off the trailer :shocked:
    Okay, not exactly that simple but almost.
    Parked it out back for now but it's the very next project that gets into the shop. :cool1:

    youre gonna part that red and white body ??! :eek1:
    i had a 68 panel delivery 2wd once, i know of a couple others, another 68 2wd one and another 68 one thats 4x4, but not local, and theres a 69 or 70 in a town near here i cant find it now

    the only first gen burb i know of around here is a 71 C-20 one, its got 350 and tilt and 4.57 posi and th400 and is ochre and white two tone and a beater but they have been putting new panels and such on it i noticed, it went for 900 bucks not running and a fender was munched on one side

    so i passed, plus it was in a towing yard and title had to be rebuilt

    K5 and burbs and panels are like rare as hell now,

    oh and there used to be a a copuple 68 burbs running around one was an ambulance i dunno where they went, gone now,

    afraid to know,..

    good luck with yours

    Sure, I'm gonna part it from the 2wd chassis and put it on the 3/4 ton 4x4 burb chassis.

    This will become my work truck. (elec. contractor)
    It'll get the full body treatment w/new paint, new interior as well as my old school-ish logo put on it but otherwise will look pretty much stock, maybe a set of rally's but otherwise pretty stock.
