From Robert :

This is my 1971 Chevy C-10 Custom that I bought new in March of 1971. I called in the order for this truck over the telephone in February of that same year to a dealer that was located about 100 miles North of the small town of Brighton, Tennessee where I now live.

This vintage truck has the original 350 engine that was rebuilt at 160,000 miles, and a Muncie 4 speed that I installed and has resided in it ever since the factory warranty expired at 12,000 miles.

I ordered the truck with factory air, no power steering and no power brakes. I used it as my daily driver until 1987. Although it currently has 203,000 miles on the clock, it still runs great.

Back in 1987, I repainted it the original black and replaced all the side moldings and tailgate moldings with genuine GM stock.

Thanks for looking.

Robert Meador
