1966 1200 Factory LP Flat bed.


Recommended Posts

Taking my earlier thought a step farther, maybe ih white with ih red accents? Maybe red tank lift and wheels? Or did ih do a 2 tone on those style trucks? Do a 2 tone with either red or white as main color and accent with which ever color you didn't use as your 2 tone? Whatever you do it will look great. 

I like that your going to incorporate his logo into it too. Nice tribute.

To me it really doesn't matter what color you paint it because l know it will be a top notch quality job. On your SMTA and the 806 both tanks look like you could reach into them and cover your hand in that beautiful finish.

I was thinking the same thing before I read this above. I wonder how a 935 white would look in a candy or gloss?  Might look kind of like a pearl color?  Painter could add some flake and make it really pop I bet.  Still have red accents. Just my $.02. I’m sure it will look great regardless ? Can’t wait to see that old emblem pinstriped on. That will be super cool!

Toy do you have a certain date that you hope to have the flatbed pickup finished?  Well, besides ASAP...lol  Just curious as a lot of the TV "hot rod" shows always say "we gotta have this done by a week from next Thursday" or something to that effect.

Twostepin, 

yep ASAP !  lol 

I and my BIL are going there on Wed 5/12/21

want to meet with them discuss bed and paint , etc . 
my BIL Stan is in trucking business and is more familiar with these kind of flat bed restorations , so hopefully we can get much dialed in . 
I will be giving them the , “ I am 75 and running out of time speech ,” hoping they can speed up !
Quite Frankly at best it would be a year from now the earliest . 
they have most of mechanical mocked up , then at mercy of painter, Uphostery , and all of details 

this August will be two years , seems like 5 , so reasonably it will be three years.

those guys on Tv , I believe , have everything staged, no way you can do a quality resto mod and body work in two weeks. 
plus now we are fighting shortages of everything , quality workers , iron is sky high , shortages everywhere you look , the economy got so screwed up and now everything is back logged and back ordered 

lucky  most of the mechanics on mine have been done , most of parts ordered before covid and they limped through covid and they are a a IH shop .

       My BIL and I took the day  ( 8 hour round trip ) and visited with shop , spent four hours with them going over truck bed ,paint , etc.
looks like they are ready to move into final fabrication then painting and frame powder coating mode soon 

Think it’s going to be little different

Oh I like different! 

Here is for a smooth finish.  They normally do higher grade stuff like the Flatbed or more parts and repair work?

Tony, after looking at where you are now with this truck, I have come to the conclusion that the keyword "facelift" that you tagged this thread with originally is...a little too weak of a word!

Yep , gets to be the ,"WHILE WE ARE HERE, THIS FAR, LETS DO THAT ALSO " syndrome ! 

    They told me two days ago that cab was off to paint shop.

At your advice, I had this one painted at a reputable shop with quality paint.  But we didn't go hardly as deep as you're going...

That’s a beauty ! 
would love to have it at our CALIF Antique farm equipment show next April with our vintage flat beds , mine is only a 3/4 ton wish it was one ton . But obviously old Herb thought 3/4 was enough and he was right .

Tony, I would love to head this old truck west to come see you next spring!  

The way she's geared, I better leave this weekend, to be there by the show...

And, I got a free M with a belly sickle I need to pick up in the Sandhills on my way home...

Yeah, the old guy that's got it won't even give it the dignity of parking it under cover, so I aim to rescue it.

 

Eh, @sandhiller?

I keep thinking I will let mine go down the road but just never quite seem to get around to getting it done. ?

And each time I jump on it to use it, I am glad I still got it. Pretty sure it's not going anywhere?

Positive you will enjoy yours too!

    First glimpse of paint on Herbie.  Needs to be color sanded and buffed. 

      Thinking that in two weeks should have cab done as far as paint.
