1979 Chevrolet Bonanza Pickup Restoration At V8 Speed & Resto Shop

We enjoyed refreshing this 1979 Chevrolet Bonanza Pickup!  This one is still in it's original family, and we're honored to have had the opportunity to give it a repaint and make it look new again. We fixed some rust in the floors, rockers, and cab corners, and resprayed it in it's original color. Lots of restoration parts form Classic Industries helped make it fresh. New interior items include Dynamat sound deadener, new dash pad, door panels, carpet, and weatherstripping. It's not a high-profile show truck, but it means the world to our customer, so it means the same to us! Thanks to the owner and to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew for returning another classic to the road!
