Ultimate Barn Finde (For AZ Geezer)

Sorry, Bill! I put it in the wrong section the first time. Can't wait to hear about it!

Re: Ultimate Barn Finde (For AZ Geezer)

So, my hotrod buddy, who knows I've been looking for a 64-66 short step, went out searching over the weekend in a rural area in Arizona that he knows well and has many friends there. He specializes in 60-66 pichups, long/short, fleet/step, he likes them all. He sent me the picture, and tells me it's a 64, V8, 4 speed truck. He says last plates are from 1989. Found it on an abandoned ranch. He checked with the county, and determined the address of the owner of the property. That owner happens to live within 2 miles of his house here in Tucson. He'll try to make contact tonight. I'll report more as I know more. Thanks for posting this, Tim. I have no idea how to get from a download to a posted picture on here.

Looks to be a solid original. Good luck Bill, hope you snag it.

Truck looks like it has a filler piece at the back of the cab, in front of the step. I have seen this, hit or miss, on a number of step-sides and wonder if this is an original piece or simply a piece dealers or owners added themselves to keep road debris off the step?

We'll see what he finds out. I've offered to go up there with my trailer and bring it back........I'd like to do that, and leave it on my trailer until it's mine!

Well??? Any progress? Although I have my hands full trying to figure out the connectors to finish wiring the '72, I'm still a little envious of you!!
