From Steve: 

     I wanted to give you a better description of my 65 C-10. I guess to start, my cousin is responsible for the paint and body work. It was painted back to the original color scheme, including the inside of the cab. We added the rally wheels and 295/50 rubber at all four corners. Then we tinted the windows and added the tri-bar halogen headlights. Those lights really improved the vision at night.

     I have the new bed wood, just haven't found the time to put it in yet. I'm doing the wood in Brazilian walnut. I really think it's going to look good. I would really appreciate some feedback about my wood choice before it goes in the truck!

     Next, I installed the painless wiring harness. Can't really say that I agree with the name (haha).Then it was onto the new carpet and the leather seats. The seats have got to be my favorite upgrade to date.

     I left the dash original with the AM radio and gauges, except the five inch autometer tach atop the dash. I have built a bracket and mounted a Sony CD player in the glove box. The seats are leather

     On to the engine compartment: I chose a new recon extreme series 350 and added a Weind intake, 750 Holley, HEI ignition, and headers. I had a baked on finish applied to the headers because I was told that the finish would hold up that way. Nothing really fancy about the tranny, it's a turbo350 with a B & M shift kit and 2800 stall converter.

     The old truck still has the original 4.10 rearend. For the exhaust, I chose three-inch pipe and 40 series Flowmasters. It sounds pretty healthy to say the least.

     Well that's pretty much what there is to the truck, without going into the blood, sweat, and tears or the nights on the couch when the wife got the credit card bills.

     Well thank you for your time and attention to look at my old sled.

From Steve: 

      This is an on-going love affair -- me and my 1965 1/2-ton. My wife gets a little jealous now and then, so it's taking a little longer than I hoped.

      I have a crate 350/TH350 combo. In the neat future, I plan to lower the truck.

      I have installed a Painless 18 circuit harness, new carpet, and Flowmaster exhaust.

      It has plenty of pep for around town.

      If you have any comments or questions, I would really like to hear what you think of my truck.

Thanks you very much,

Steve
