    Thanks to those who showed interest...

    1961 Chevy C10 Panel. This truck has been my daily driver for the last 3 years. I am still currently driving it everyday, but I need something thats better for the family.

    From what I know from the previous owner, this is an old Helms Bakery truck. It gets lots of attention and comments from people that remember Helms.

    Motor is an early 80s 350 V8 with a 700r4 trans. Transmission shifts nice and firm. Truck starts right up everyday. Power steering, power brakes.

    Here is what I have done/replaced in the last 3 years:

    New 140 amp alternator
    new gas tank
    new plugs, wires
    new thermostat and housing
    new waterpump
    HEI distributor
    new fuel pressure regulator
    new fuel pump
    new brake master
    new brake booster
    new brake shoes
    new brake cylinder and hardware
    several new brake hard lines
    all new ball joints and tie rods
    Classic industries lowering springs
    new rear air shocks
    power steering conversion
    power brake conversion
    new tachometer
    new battery
    new mufflers
    newer exhaust manifolds
    new exhaust tubing
    Ford Taurus electric radiator fan
    Volvo fan controller
    new carpet front and rear
    New front bumper

    Drivers area was completely covered in sound deadener and heat barrier before new carpet was installed. Rear area has wood paneling with Styrofoam insulation and new industrial grey carpet.

    Newer Stereo head unit with bluetooth and Polk Audio speakers in Truck Shop kick panels.
    Body is pretty straight for a 56 year old truck.
    I just took it camping a few months ago. Truck drives really well.
    Im sure there more to list, but thats all I can think of right now.
    These old panel trucks are getting harder and harder to find. Drive this one anywhere.
