Default come on now

we jumped into the 70 yesterday needed to pick up some copies I had made up, another one of these nickle and dime runs for a necessary a piece for the 58 and a new valve for the Thomas A in the house. got back home and looked around and realised man it's time to clean this thing out. I haven't washed it since we did the last repaint I have orange dust everywhere pieces of this and that left in the truck from one run or the other. that new type electric siren I though may be I might just put in has been on the seat for 4 months now. been using it to store the extra gurneys. time has come we need to clean house. I did get a few copies of these the owner's manual for the power call and the the service manual for the pa-15 made up before they're gone. been thinking about that for a couple years now. checked the sticker out for the oil change. it was last done in summer of 13. we now have all most 2 thousand miles on the oil. those mile trips down town add up after awhile. my Sturges trip got postponed till monday and Kandy has things to do that day better take it up get the thing serviced and pick up the 20 inch tires the dealer doesn't want and my plating for the 53 and 58. got to do that before it disappears can't get any of that in the GEO even with the top down.

Default Hey!

What a nice looking rig, I would like to own one like that one day. What are all those switches for? Does the cup holder come with the car?

flip lever is the master. it has the jewel light nothing ambulance related will work without it on. top left rear dome top right blower for rear heater. in the line of three first is left sene next corner and grill then the 184. I can't remember if only the beacon turns on the other jewel light or the corner ones do to. far right is right sene. holes in the radio delete for the mike mounts . you can see that this one has the very hard to find cigar lighter blank also.

all the wires for the top and rear lights come up the right pillar. I did give it a bathe today and rub the overspray off the bumper and grill. some guys when they paint get really sloppy. the cup holders are attached to the dash and as far as I can tell they are original first service equipment. I use them a lot. just remember to get the right cup out before you open the glove box

Default Now to get it shipped

Well I put up for bids on U-Ship last night for the Hot Springs to Alliance run and the Alliance to Howell, MI run thinking some enterprising young trucker might want a twofer and give both me and the Michigan buyer, (I will let him identify himself) a bargain. So far one bid and that is only to go to Michigan. Doesn't anybody want to see the USA anymore? It is a straight line practically across the middle of the country. Might have to drive it myself.

It's a beautiful time of the year for a road trip! It's not like it hasn't been driven in a long time! Of course a flight into Rapid City may be about as expensive as having it hauled.

not to bad if you stay off united and do northwest threw the cities that run from Denver up, costs a lot. Hard to get someone to do the dead zone run going in but as this one is going out someone may pick it up.

To the best of my knowledge it has never been reproduced by anyone WITH the Chevrolet letters. New reproduction grills are blank in the center. Last "NOS" grille I saw for sale in the box was well over $1000. Of course, they sell a sticker kit to make the reproduction ones resemble the original, but it's just not the same as the embossed letters. On top of that, the originals are anodized aluminum, which held up ok until you got a little chip or ding in them, then they started to dull between the clear anodizing and the aluminum surface. People think they can "polish that out", but you can't, it just makes it worse. Only solution is to strip the anodizing off, then polish the aluminum, then polish it every week for the rest of your life.

Oh yeah, did I mention it was a two year only grill? And that they changed the plastic part between '69 and '70? Now you start to see why nice ones cost so much...

Brothers has had them for at least a year. xtra for the stamped chevy name. at the time I had this one out your could not get the script. but as it is all washed we used it to go get Mom today for lunch. then ran up into the park. need to drive it some before the run north tomorrow

you ever wonder just how big a hole one of these critters digs. a man can get his leg in one of them
