1964 Chevy C-10 Fleetside Shortbed

From Philip :

           Here is my 1964 Chevy C-10 Fleetside Shortbed 327. The truck belonged a friend of mine. For the last 10 years, I had been bugging him to sell me the truck.

           One night, he finally decided it was time to sell the truck to me. I was thrilled to get it at such a great deal ($1500). My wife, not so much. She could only shake her head at me and walk back in the house -- but I was in heaven.

           It was in bad shape, rusted out and it had a bad shifter. It has taken me two years to get to this point. I figure I will have completion in about five years total.

           I have changed the shifter from a 3 speed column to a Hurst shifter on the floor. What a difference that made! The engine is a 327 cu inch with all Edelbrock top end with a 4 bbl carb. and 411 rear end so it is very fast off the line. In fact, I have to watch out so i don't spin the wheels. It has American mags, Headman headers, cut-outs, Corvette tips on exhaust and when I open them up, it really sounds mean and nasty. Later this year, they have the "Cruzin for life" and they allow every one to open headders and cruz thru town. It was a blast last year and we had about 200 cars and trucks go thru our town.

           I tore out the bed and replaced with Australian Cypress. Flaming paint job all done by me by hand.

           Itís the never-ending project.

           I have really enjoyed Stovebolt web site to the max.
