How to Restore Your Chevy Truck (1967-1972) - Step by Step Restoration Procedures

When Chevy released its second-generation C/K pickup trucks, dubbed the "Action Line," it was apparent that many changes over the previous generation had been employed. Not only did the truck have a simpler, more clean-cut look but this was also the beginning of an era where modern creature comforts that we often take for granted started appearing in the good old Chevy workhorse.
Power steering, power brakes, more-powerful engines, a smoother-riding coil rear suspension, automatic transmissions, and independent front suspension all led to what was the most drivable of any Chevy trucks to this point. Back then and today, this generation of Chevy truck is almost universally considered the most popular. Aftermarket parts availability and auction prices support that assertion.

In "How to Restore Your Chevy Truck: 1967-1972", veteran author Kevin Whipps shows you how to inspect, assess, and accurately budget your restoration project. You are then taken through each major portion of truck restoration, including the engine, suspension, chassis, bodywork, paint, brakes, steering, transmission, driveline, electrical system, interior, and more.
Each section shows practical, real-world repair and restoration in general and step-by-step formats. After all of these years of hard use and exposure to harsh conditions, most of these trucks are in need of some serious work.

Chevy/GMC trucks are extremely popular as stock restorations, fast street trucks, and off-road trucks. But before you can build a specialty truck, you need to have a solid, reliable, restored truck. This book provides the invaluable information and step-by-step instruction to return these trucks to their original glory.

How to Restore Your Chevy Truck (1973-1987) - Step-by-Step Restoration Procedures

When Chevy released its third-generation C/K pickup trucks, the stout and sturdy performers captured the attention of Chevy and GMC truck enthusiasts. As a result, millions were sold during their 18-year production run. The new cab design featured rounded windshield corners, a rounded cab roof, and sloped and rounded doors. Although the older Chevy/GMC pickups are more exclusive, the third-generation pickups are plentiful, increasing in collector value, and, fortunately, they have parts that are readily available.

Chevy/GMC trucks are extremely popular as stock restorations, fast street trucks, and off-road-duty trucks. But before you can build a specialty truck, you need to have a solid, reliable, restored truck. Whether your 1973-1987 Chevy truck is a regular, super, or crew cab with a short or long box, this restoration guide provides the pertinent information and instruction to restore your squarebody truck to original condition.

Seasoned truck magazine writer Kevin Whipps explains real-world techniques for restoring classic Chevrolet and GMC trucks at home. In "How to Restore Your Chevy Truck: 1973-1987", you are shown how to comprehensively inspect, properly assess, and accurately budget your restoration project.
You are also guided through each major portion of truck restoration, including the engine, suspension, chassis, bodywork, paint, brakes, steering, transmission, driveline, electrical system, interior, and more.
Special coverage is dedicated to the replacement of body panels and repair of the box, cab, and other body parts. When pro-caliber bodywork has been performed, you have an excellent foundation for the paint, and in turn, you're shown how to prep, shoot, and buff the paint job.

Chevy / GMC Trucks (1973-1987) - How to Build and Modify

GM's squarebody trucks are a solid, simple, and easy-to-find rig - and that makes them perfect for modification. They're American classics, and they've become the hot rods of a new generation.
Veteran magazine editor Jim Pickering brings these trucks into focus, taking you through the aspects that make them so popular and modifications you can perform to put a modern spin on their classic looks.
He takes an in-depth look at all the major systems in your Chevy truck and covers what can be done to them to turn your classic hauler into the modern hot rod that you want: a truck that's fast, safe, full of curb appeal, and reliable enough to drive whenever and wherever you want.

Built in massive numbers during an 18-year production run, these trucks aren't hard to source, but finding a good starting point and mapping out your plan are important.
This book covers a lot of territory: how to find a good starter truck, LS-power builds and installs, slammed air suspension and coilover systems, automatic and manual transmission choices (including a 6-speed manual conversion), cooling system upgrades, safely adding a modern alternator to factory GM wiring, modifying a mechanical clutch pedal to use a hydraulic master and slave cylinder, making new fuel lines and brake lines to support fuel injection and big brakes, installing a 4-link rear suspension system, fabricating an under-bed mount to hide air suspension components, building exhaust, adding LED lighting, interior restoration, and more.

If you're building a squarebody truck that you'd actually like to drive regularly, you've come to the right place. There hasn't ever been a more comprehensive, authoritative look at building a complete truck for street use that includes all the steps required to make it work.
