Hello everyone, my name is Jason and I've recently purchased a 1964 Chevy C10 P/U. I have been an automotive enthusiast for many years and have mostly worked on newer vehicles. I have always wanted an old pick up truck and I recently found a 64 C10 that was a perfect candidate to get started with. The frame and the bed are both in good shape but the cab has seen better days. Unfortunately it sat for a number of years and the previous owner(s) were negligent on some needed repairs and body work. It didn't discourage me because I have big plans for the truck.

I'm very much in the learning stages as I learn the nuances of a nearly 60 year old Chevy! I'm looking forward to all of the information and wisdom this forum has to offer as I continue with my build. I'll try and get some pictures up shortly but until then, thank you very much for having me.

Welcome to the forum Jason. Be sure to check out all the forums we have. There is on specifically for 60-66 trucks.
I used to work a lot in the Niagara peninsula, in construction.

Welcome to the “Bolt”! Two summers ago, before the pandemic, my wife, grandson and myself visited the Niagara Falls and we absolutely loved it. You live in a beautiful area. Congrats to you and your wife on buying your truck!

Welcome to the Stovebolt, Jason. Consider yourself at home.

A truck 60 years old may be old to you but to us "young guys like me" that seems like yesterday. That is a good choice with parts available for just about anything. Good luck on your project. Ask questions in the garage forums and we'll do the rest.

.....if you get a chance to met up with Leo "1953Panel" please do so. He's long time bolter and a really nice guy.
