Another goddamned 620

Recommended Posts

So I guess it is about time I start a build thread.

 

Picked up a 77 long bed 620 in a twofer deal with a buddy. He got a truck that ran but looked a lot like hammered dog shit. I got a truck that didn't run and just looked like normal dog shit.

 

The truck was sitting at a buddy's over the winter, which made workin on it some what inconvenient. But I got it AAA'd home and I'm getting shit done.

 

I'll post some pics in a bit.

When I got the truck the ignition switch had gone bad and the previous owner just hot wired the shit

I know I know. .. a new one is only like 30-40 bucks. But this is more fun.

I'd suggest hiding the killswitch so no one jacks your shit.

The damn thing sat in this dudes back yard for like 9 years.

 

So it needs some work. Pretty much anything brakes related needed to be replaced.

 

Ive done the master, rear shoes, flex lines, and the rear hard lines.

 

Look at this!

There will be another switch in the line tucked away somewhere. I have yet to wire it in yet.

Hahaha. That would have saved me 20 bucks.

 

Edit: I'm still laughing

Found this sitting in the middle of the street. Mocked it up and it fits the curve of the hood perfectly. I'll slap it on eventually.

looks like a late 40's Pontiac "flying lady" hood ornament ... I couldn't find that exact one, but that's looks cool on the 620

I haven't really done anything super impressive with the truck yet, just lots of little shit. And not much is documented other than being crossed off from my cardboard list.

Took off the floor mats to get a better look at the rust.

That little hole is the worst of it. Shouldn't be too hard to patch.

If you could get good money for it, it would be hard not to sell it, but it would look pretty cool on the truck too.

Uhgg I know... it would look so bitchin. But It could also pay for a front disc conversion.

 

Tbh selling on ebay sounds like more of a hassle than I care to deal with. I might just keep it. But we'll see
