Model: C10 Stepside
Color: Regatta blue
When I first got this truck it had been setting behind a barn for years
with trees and bushes grown through it , the mice and critters had moved in and made it there home.
it had a small block with who knows how many miles on it and a TH350 transmission that looked like it had tar in it
So in my great wisdom I drug it home thinking the whole way home what have I done LOL
Then it started,, I pulled the carpet out to find most of the floor gone , the mice had gotten it the wiring under the dash it was junk
the doors you could stick your finger through the rust , The roof under the headliner was held together by the paint.
I striped the truck down to the last bolt and found a crack in the the frame of course. At this point I was about to send it to scrap
but No it wasn't going to be that easy, I took inventory of what was good which was what was left of the cab , the bed a cracked frame ,the rear end and some of the front suspension.
I took the bed and had it soda blasted when I picked it up it looked like swiss cheese and had been wrecked at some point
At this point I wasn't even shocked !! it just got added to the growing list of parts I needed .
I started cleaning and welding the cab back together rebuilt the frame put new suspension on it after about 6 months of building welding taking it back apart putting it back together
I got the cab on and could roll it in and out of the garage . after another 6 months and different 3 beds and new finders and hood and rewiring the whole truck
I built a 454 for it and had a super T10 4 speed built I did the body work ( A big learning curve ) I disassemble it and had it painted and reassembled it .
It took a little over a year from the day I picked it up to the day I test drove it .
If you still awake after reading this I will post some pictures .
