1965 Chevrolet C20 Pickup Truck

Van Pershing
Tucson, Arizona
June 2011
After 10 years of reasonable service, the Arizona sun totally had its way with the code 33 Light Driftwood Metallic B/C paint job. Since a fresh coat of paint was in order, it was decided to go to an original '65 color. Light Green code 503 was the final choice. Click on any picture to enlarge.

November 2011: Van & Vicki with all 17 grandkids! A few additions have been added since the pictures was taken. There are now 21.
This picture was taken just a few days after the paint was applied. (June 2011)
 
A '64/'65 Arizona licence plate was added for a little nostalgic touch.
The warped and deteriorated oak bed from was replaced with white pine. Defy Deck Stain for Hardwoods (light walnut) was used instead of the traditional varnishes or urethanes. Time will tell if it holds up.
