I’ve been sort of half heartedly looking for a project Chevy pickup lately. Was sort of looking for a runner, and a pre-73, ended up with neither!
I have done an awful lot of classic vehicle restoration, but it’s been a while. Now that I’ve got a little bit of breathing room, I thought I’d pick up another one. Don’t have much of a budget for this one, and it’s a going to need a lot of love. Quite a dilemma. But it has good bones.
75 C10 shortbed, Rode hard and put up wet. Guy and his son picked it up and began a restoration, then picked up a better candidate. Lucky me. Arizona rust in the passenger floorboard, Body rough as a cob but solid. Zero interior. Freshly rebuilt very strong 383, TH400, 12 bolt. Truly the drivetrain is the best part of the truck. Everything else, and I mean every blasted thing needs attention.
Got a bed full of extra bits to pick and choose from.
Got what I think was a pretty good price, but all these little bits are going to add up. Interior and body will be the worst.
It will be a lengthy process, but I’d like to turn it into a driver sooner rather than later. Needs brakes, fuel line, interior, tires for that to happen.
We will see…
