1968 Chevrolet C-10 Short Wide-bed Pickup
12 February 2007
From Gary :
I've owned my "Pair-A-Dice" for three years now. It's 1968 Chevrolet C-10 short wide-bed pickup. I bought her out of Illinois and had her shipped in. She was covered in Illinois dirt, grime and bird droppings when I got her. It took an entire weekend of cleaning and hand-waxing to bring the paint back to where it should be.
The truck has a 350 small block and a 350 transmission with a 12-bolt rear. The transmission was rebuilt by “Hi-Tech Transmissions” of Fairfax, Virginia. They did a fantastic job! The 350 features an Edelbrock manifold and carb combo with Hedman Hedders going through Flowtech Afterburner Mufflers. It also has power brakes and power steering. The interior is stock except for the Mooneyes Wheel and an old Sun tach, plus it features the “Radio Delete” option plate, that’s been chromed.
Future plans include a suspension drop and 5-lug, disc brake upgrade, moving the tank under the bed and lots & lots of TLC.
I grew up and lived in the Clinton / Waldorf / Southern Maryland area since I was one, just outside of Andrews A.F.B. in Clinton. I moved over to Virginia about 10 years ago, just across the bridge from Stovebolt HQ. I'm a member of the American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) and I'm really hoping to get to the Berryville and Winchester shows this year. Wow, you guys got some serious trucks there! I'm also a member of the Kena Shrine Antique Car Club and a Member of the Northern Virginia Car Club Council. I'll let you know when my club does our annual show and, hopefully, you'll be able to attend and bring either the '65 or the '49.
