From Bob :

       I wanted to get some pictures up of my truck in the Gallery. So here they are with some information.

       This old truck is a two-wheel drive 1965 Chevy C-10 Shortbed Stepside with a 283 V-8. She only has 75,000 original miles and is solid! She’s all stock thus far, but I am working on that.

       The truck was purchased from a fellow in Georgia. I found the truck online. I had my Dad look at it and had the seller trailer it up to me. When I first saw it, I thought it looked in a lot better shape than originally expected.

       Pictures: passenger side front ~ passenger side ~ driver side

       My plans are kind of up in the air right now. I hope to lower the truck, prime it in a flat color and use it to fix up my house. As the house gets done, I hope to start tearing it down and rebuilding it. I really hope to get it looking good.

       So far, I have put in new brake lines and done a few cosmetics. I got a 3” - 5” lowering spring kit from CPP. I've installed peep mirrors and removed those ugly billboard style farm mirrors.

       More photos on my Flickr account.

       Will keep you updated.
