1969 Chevy C10
This is a 1969 Chevy C10 with a 350 engine and a th400 transmission. The diff is a 12 bolt with 3.73 gears. The truck cruises at highway speeds no problem. Does about 3,000rpm at 65mph. The truck has powered steering and powered brakes. Rides smooth with zero shakes or rattles. I have owned this truck for four years, and the previous owner was a friend of mine who I would help work on the truck before I purchased it. Over this time period the truck has been slowly restored to the condition it is in today. Almost every single part of this truck has been gone through with all receipts/paperwork of every part purchased or work being done.
The engine in the truck has a four bolt main with crank casting number 3932442 showing that is a 350 engine. The engine has been bored 30 over making the actual displacement 355 cubic inches. The engine also has a mild cam with long tube headers, an hei distributor, a mini starter, dual plane intake, four barrel edelbrock carb with electronic choke. The radiator has dual electric fans on a fan shroud. The fans are temp controlled set to turn at 185 and off at 175 with a thermostat at 180 degrees. With this set up the truck has never overheated, and very rarely even hits 190 degrees. The engine pulls and sounds great with no mechanical issues or fluid leaks. The th400 transmission was rebuilt a year ago and shifts smooth. The transmission has a stock stall torque converter with a B&M floor shifter.
The interior is in overall great condition as well. The bench seat does have one small green stain on it (about 1/8 inch) that I have not been able to remove with any of the methods I have tried. I have not taken it anywhere to be looked at, so it is a possible a professional might be able remove the stain. The gauge cluster has been replacement with a Dakota Digital. I do still have the original gauge cluster along with addition face plates for the aftermarket gauge cluster to change its color.
