From Ronney :

This is my wife's 1966 C10 Short Bed Fleetside. We have owned this classic truck for about a year now.

The truck came from Macon, Georgia. It was my wife's cousin's truck and he sold it to her. We had the truck shipped to Chicago. When it came of the car hauler and my little brother and I picked it up, that was one the fun started.

The battery was mounted on a wooden block which while pulling it up on the hauler made it fall into the fan which pushed it into the radiator knocking a hole in the radiator and battery -- also destroying the flex fan. So I bought another battery and put it in the truck. I bought some water at a store so we could make it home.

We started it back up and part of the fan shot off and knocked a hole in the battery. Now that's bad luck. Somehow we made it home ok with just front brakes because the rear brake lines from the frame to the rear end were clogged.

We have to replace just about everything on the truck, with total upgrades to the steering, brakes, engine -- you name it.

My wife plans on using her truck to go to Church on nice days -- she is a Sunday school teacher. We'll also take the truck to a few car and truck shows with me and my 1969 GTO.

This will be a complete restore job -- pretty much a frame off with upgrades (steering/brakes/motor/trans/and interior).
