1966 Chevrolet C10 CUSTOM
Ok, here is the whole story...
I am 70 and I have owned (10) 1960-1966 C-10 pickups. This was to be my final dream truck with no expenses spared.
This is an Idaho truck (little rust and not beat up like most farm trucks were) and was the in the best condition of any previous ones I started with. This was originally a longbed and the frame was professionally shortened to a shortbed years before I purchased it and it is the best frame fabrication I have seen.
This truck has a long list of upgrades. All new suspension front and rear. New upper and lower control arms. Lowered 2.5" in front and 4" in rear. Classic Low Rider, but not in the weeds. Sway bars (new) front and rear. All new power disc brakes on all 4 wheels (front/rear). Tank in cab was removed and rear tank installed. Note the small rear window was replaced with the custom big window (kit now available). Work was done by auto body professional (looks stock factory). It has a new 3 core aluminum radiator with a transmission cooler.
This body was straight to start with and you can see it stripped to bare metal. The driver's side rocker was replaced, the front fenders needed the bottoms repaired. As you can see it has a 69 Camaro style cowl induction hood (steel) that was also professionally installed. The body has no rust issues to repair and all of the sheetmetal is ready for blocking and primer.
The vent glass in doors were removed. My intention was to install one piece glass electric windows in the doors. Have original vent windows, if wanted, to return to stock look.
The engine is a 406 SBC (4 bolt main-originally a 400 bored .030 over) 6.6 Liter. Engine was completely rebuilt. Comes with 2:02/1:60 Aluminum heads with SS valves w/roller rockers, Hypereutectic pistons, Comp cam, Stainless block hugger headers. Edelbrock manifold with a Holley 750 cfm double pumper carb. I can email 17MB video of it running. It has all brand new CPP 500 power steering.
