From Jason:
 

       This is my 1964 Chevy C10 Fleetside. I bought my truck in Bethel Island, CA. When I bought the truck, the guy said it ran great -- which it did. He offered to deliver it for me -- an hour and a half away. Lucky that he did because most of the wires were melted and the truck was running off of the battery. I would have never made it home.

 

       It was completely rusted and had rust holes everywhere. I saw the potential in it though.

       I have owned it for a little bit more than two years. Completely overhauled the entire brake system including lines and fabricated the installation of a brake booster. Carpeted and re-upholstered the interior. Rewired the entire truck. Cut out the tw auxilary gas tanks that didnt exist and welded in sheet metal. Sanded, drilled, stained and sealed wood for the bed. Sanded, primed and painted the truck. Put some old school ralley wheels on it.

 

       My wife used to call it "The Rust Bucket" but since it doesn't have any rust on it anymore, she had to come up with a better name for it. How appropriate: "The Money Pit."
