Brandon Green of Lakewood, California, recently shared a few images of his pride and joy that we, in turn, wanted to share with you. Brandon bought this '72 Chevrolet 3/4-ton C20 longbed in November of 2009. He'd always admired classic trucks and cars, but, growing up, hadn't been taught how to work on them. Brandon bought this truck from a guy who worked on a TV/movie studio lot in Hollywood. He said that the movie studio had used it in dozens of TV shows and movies as a background vehicle (the truck came with the dealer plate imprint showing the movie studio purchase info and original owner's manual).

The gentlemen he purchased it from had bugged the studio for a long time to sell it to him. They finally did, but with the economy souring he decided to sell since he needed the money. Brandon saw the Craigslist ad and had to check it out. It looked great and original with little to no rust due to the California weather. He's done all of the work on the truck except for the paintjob. It's been repainted the original color paint code 523 Dark Blue, and he's rightfully proud that he learned to do all the work himself with the help of the Internet and the '67-72 Chevy truck forum (we're hoping CT helped a bit, too). Brandon replaced all the weatherstrips, installed a MagnaFlow dual exhaust system, new carpet, vinyl bench seat cover, tires, wheels, seatbelts, heater and A/C vent hoses trim, and the list goes on and on. The C20 is powered by a 350ci small-block. He dressed the Mouse motor up a bit by adding a few aftermarket items to give it a unique touch.

Thanks for sharing, Brandon, can't wait to see your next classic pickup project ... Believe me, there will be another, you'll see.
