yes i think those were the years. i just had a heck of a scare, i was in the office talking on here and heard a crash and my 8 month old cat knocked one of my 242 lanterns that i put the 243b style vents on but luckily nothing broke, not even the globe. i hung them from the floor joists so no more problems.


Oh man! Glad they didnt break!

yes nothing broken, but it should be as the landing place is bare concrete basement floor. i can only guess here but maybe the cat himself went down with the lantern and cushioned it as they were in basically the same spot when i flew down the stairs to see what happened.

I havent been on here a lot lately but thought I would give an update on the lantern hauler. Well it morphed a bit. My kiddo wanted to be able to go for rides instead of just working on the 37 so I ended up selling it. I sat in it and really didnt think I would ever be able to drive it that comfortably. Those cabs are so small! And since I'm 6'1" or so I figured I better go a little newer. Originally I wanted a 1955-1959 but got this dangled infront of me. So here she is. My 66' Chev short wide. Slowly making more progress and changing things around on it but getting to drive it as I work on it is a lot of fun too! And the best part of it is that its kiddo approved. Shes already asked if it can be hers when shes old enough to drive....

More options for power in the '66 anyway - good choice, the straight six, 350, etc. You'll actually be able to go more than 45mph without feeling like it's going to shake apart.

If she can see over the steering wheel, she's old enough to drive.  Bring her over sometime and she can learn in the field where my daughters first drove.

Thanks guys. It is a really solid driver. And yes options are endless. I am not sure tge kiddo is strong enough for no power steering or brakes yet though lol. It's going to get both upgraded though to power and power disc when I can. We both like to work on it and cruise it together. Making memories is what its about!

Nice looking truck, Josh, and good to see a post from you. I envy you, being able to enjoy making memories with a kid working on an old vehicle.  I can only imagine it makes for some good times.  Take pictures; time flies!

I love that body style!
Getting rid of the wrap-around windshield of
the '60-'63 made those look sooo much better.

60-62 were those. 63-66 are the flatter windshield like the one above. I really like the windshield from the 60-62 era.  

Best years were 67-72 and 68 is my favorite one of those

but my all-time favorite body style
of any pickup is '55-'59 "Task Force".

yes, you’re right. I totally missed the 63
