From Brad :
First off, let me say that you have a great web site for old Chevy trucks!! Now, you will notice one pic in these pics from my Village Photos account is not of my truck but a 1969 C-10 my Dad bought new. He was the one that got me interested in old Chevy trucks. This picture was taken in 1971. It is Dad holding me in front of the C-10 short stepside.
Dad passed away in 1997 but I still and always will love these old trucks because of him.
Now for my truck. It's a 1967 Chevy Short Fleetside C-10. It has its original six cylinder and three speed tranny. I bought the truck from Tennessee. It has had three owners. I have all the original paper work and even the protecto plate for warranty.
It was bought new on August 25, 1967 by a man named Jimmy Collins and with the records I have, it stayed in Knoxville, Tennessee until 2005 when I bought it.
As you can see in the before photo, it was an original green truck and was somewhat tattered but was super solid !! I replaced the rocker panels and the right front fender tip. Then I just cleaned and painted the rest. To date, I can't find anything wrong with the 250 six cylinder engine (I WILL GLADLY FIX ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT -- if I could find anything!).
I have put 4K miles on the truck and enjoy it more everyday
