More pictures of my old truck
From Justin :
Here's my 1966 Chevy C10. I traded my brother a $50 van for it back in 2001. At that time, the front clip had been removed and tore apart. It also had no motor or transmission.
When new, the truck originally came with a 250 Inline 6 and a three speed on the column. The original factory options included were a heavy duty battery, heavy duty rear springs, and chrome side moldings.
My brother bought it in 1993 and tore it apart with the intentions of making a drag truck out of it. It sat that way until I started on it in 2008.
For now, I'm kind of going with the rat look until I get all of the upgrades done. So far, I have rebuilt all of the drum brake components. It has a Hurst competition plus shifter that I modified to shorten the throw and clear the bench seat which is out of a '90 Chevy truck.
The motor is a 350 that came from a '72 Chevy pickup. It's been bored .030 over, and is balanced, and equipped with 10:1 Keith Black pistons, Holley 650 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, Msd Streetfire HEI, and a fairly stout cam.
The tranny is a Borg-Warner Super T 10, with a 2.43 first gear that came out of a Corvette. The rear end has 3.73 gears.
The truck has been lowered 3" in the front and 4" in the rear and has CPP springs. It's sitting on 15x8 chrome Corvette Ralleys, and has 255/70 R15's on the back, 235 70 R15's up front.
The truck is a blast to drive! Right now I'm in the process of mounting an Alpine CD player in the glove box with an amp, 6 disc changer and subwoofer under the seat. In the near future, power steering is on the list.
