Default Re: 1964 Palomino Tan build

Hi everybody,

I picked up a 1500 Palomino tan truck a few weeks ago.
I'll convert it to a 1/2t truck with the truck arm rear suspension.
So far it's not a lot to look at, but it's got potential!
Welcome to the forum, Casey! My '67 is Palomino Tan too, but most people call it pink when they see it because of years of fading in the sun.

I'm curious why you would want to convert your rear suspension to control arms when half ton GMCs had leaf springs, just like your three-quarter ton model. The '60 to '62 GMC half ton models had the control arms and coils, but GMC upgraded to leaves in 1963.
