From Patrick :

Here is the latest addition to the fleet. I traded the 1965 C-10 for this 1966 Chevy C-10 Panel truck.

The story goes, I did a little horse-trading to get this little diamond in the rough. This '66 C-10 Panel Delivery is from north Texas. Yes, it needs a little work -- that's OK. This project is number three in the to-do list -- behind my two Mopar wagons (1980 Town & Country and a 1956 Plymouth two-door wagon!).

The long-term plan for the Panel includes putting in a 350 / 700R4, power leather seats from a Cadillac Escalade, Dakota digital dash, Ididit column, and a full custom interior that will be in the spirit of the '70s van and panel craze -- but updated. NO mirrors or disco balls, though!

It's already been converted to five-lug front and back (with front discs), so the wheel / tire choices are huge! Some 17" Torque Thrusts, or maybe some chrome smoothies?

I've got some ideas for the exterior that are unique, but not over-the-top, like many '70s vans were!

Since the truck is essentially a rolling body shell, it's going in the corner of the shop and will be a parts storage rig, for the time being. If I can get the wagons done, one per year, then this one should be ready to start actual work on in 2011 or so ... hopefully sooner!

Parts collection begins in earnest!

Well, Patrick ... this should be something to see when you get it all done. Good luck ... I bet you won't be able to keep your hands off it until 2011!! Keep us posted. ~ Editor
