A Cool Restified Ride
Most of the '67-'72 Chevys you see in our magazine have been torn apart, mangled, modified, and mangled again. Very few resemble their stock appearance. But every now and then we run across one that is totally restored to almost-original condition, yet is functional as a daily driver and weekend wheeler. One example is the very cherry Chevy Cheyenne you see here. Jesse Walker of Pleasant Grove, Utah, originally bought the truck as a hobby project, but a flattened cam in his work truck turned the old Cheyenne into his daily driver. This inhibited Jesse from letting the truck have any serious downtime, resulting in an extended four-year process to bring the truck to its current condition. By the look of this truck, it was worth the wait. We asked Jesse what it takes to bring a truck like this back to new condition, and his answer was, "Plan on spending a lot of time, money, and research, and also have a lot of beer on hand, because you're going to need help from your friends."
