From Andy :

           This is my 1966 Chevrolet C-10 Fleetside Longbed. It has a 283 ci V8 with the 4-speed on the floor.

           I have always wanted a project truck to work on. I found this one on eBay in Utah back in September. I was able to buy the truck for $900. Too bad shipping costs from Utah to Illinois cost about as much as the truck!

           I bought the truck when my wife was out of town and boy was she happy when she came home and saw this sitting in the driveway!

           I don't know a whole lot about the truck's history. It is mostly all original. It was in Utah most of its life. The older gentleman I bought it from said he used the truck for camping in the desert. He had a camper in the bed of the truck, and he installed two extra gas tanks.

           I've wanted an older vehicle to work on but I don't have a lot of knowledge about it yet. I guess I'll learn a lot with this truck as I go. I've always liked the looks of these trucks, and I'm happy to actually own one! I am only the third owner of this truck.

           So, I haven't had to do anything major to it yet to be able to drive it. It runs really well and is fun to drive. This has been my daily driver since I bought it. It definitely gets some good looks around town! I have had five people offer to buy it from me, but I told them she wasn't for sale.

           My plans are to start on some body work this spring. I don't have a lot of auto repair know how, but I am willing to learn and try it.

           ~Looks like a great find. I am sure you can find a wealth of knowledge here on the Bolt. Be sure to check out the Tech Tips section as well! -- Gallery Gal
