Here is my 1960 Chevy C10:http://rides.webshots.com/album/570061185LmBBDA?vhost=rides
I bought this truck from South Carolina in 2001, right at the border of North Carolina. I won her off of eBay with only a few pictures. She looked straight in the pictures without major rust. Rust is all you see in old trucks here on Long Island. Being surrounded by sea water and the salted roads in the winter causes all kinds of problems here!
I flew down to my folks in NC, drove 1.5 hours to buy her. I drove her to their house, picked up a U-haul the following day and trailered her 11 hours up to Long Island.
She is completely original except for her paint, tires etc. I painter her to get her out of the grey primer she was dressed with. It took me a few years to find the original hood as the original owner (I bought her from the nephew of the original owner) exchanged the hood for a 63-66 model. I also replaced the bed since it was rotted.
She is a little tired now. I need to rebuild the transmission since I lost the sink in 3rd. So the only sink I have is in 2nd! The engine is giving me problems at 110,000 miles (I have a post up for this). Since this is 1 of 3 trucks, I hope I can find the time to work on her.
The one think I need to do is give her a name. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks to everyone at this site for helping me keep her alive!
