Heres my old 1964 Splitscreen crewcab these first pics are al i saw of her before i paid £4000 for here over the phone.. She was ment to turn up all welded, running MOTed and on the road but i got screwed over big time.. She turned up like this with a engine on the bed and a load of panels inside so i was p1ssed to say the least.. I went made on them and they agreed to give my money back and collect it from me.. BUT she was the only crewcab for at the time so i kept her and dealt with it..

I sat about just getting her solid and on the road..
But the first thing was a lowered front beam which was just cut and turned and wasn't low enough... see...

The 64 crew cab.. EVA.. Pbucket

So i got hold of a adjustable beam and chuckked that in.. A bit better..
She also came with NO dropsides or rear gate... As you may know split crewca drop sides AREN'T cheap so i found a good complete set of bay single cab gates then set about cutting them up shortening them to suit the crew cab..

The complete cab floor was kackered so i got a OG floor cut from another van and i replaced that.. So was both outer sills..
The rear inner floor was rotten so that was cut out and i had so sheet metal cut and folded to suit and welded that in..
The lower front panel was also replaced at the same time..

Bit of body prep and some primer to the front half. And a set of white BRM's 4.5's on 145/65's and 5.5's on 195/65's were added.

The O/S rear corner/quarter had taken a big impact and was to far gone for repair, crewcab rear corners are a totally different shape and profile to split buses so i searched and searched for one but couldn't find one GOOD one... I could only find 3 shagged ones so i got them and cut them about welded them in place to make one good one, i also had to jack the chassis leg out straight to get the engine lid in to shut..
The rear quarter was really badly warped so that got heated up and body jacked from the inside and a nuts load of panel beating to the quarter and corner.

I had to drive her to Exeter to get her inspected once she passed the MOT so i put her in primer..

I didn't like the stock rear running gear so i straight axled her using a GT box ect also rebuilt all the brakes, lines, master cylinder and cables.
