My work truck wore out so I took a short break from my 35 olds project to build a daily driver C10. I thought I would just pick up a decent beater and clean it up a bit, bag it and focus on mechanicals for a month or two and then just drive it- Instead I found a really badly put together truck with really nice paint for a good price. It had horrible wiring (masking tape connections?), bad brakes, goofy stance, hacked up frame, exhaust made out of flex pipe, kmart wheels, engine swap gone totally wrong, shitty pep boys accessories, that clunky B&M rachet shifter that is in every truck I have ever bought, a fast and furious steering wheel, etc. . .but this amazing dark green paint. I thought I could just do a bunch of weekend projects and end up with a nice enough truck but one thing led to another and here I am 7 months later with this- Sectioned front crossmember up 2”, cupped lower arms and installed bags, pie cut upper arms, lowering spindles, all new bushings, moved crossmember forward 1”, rackandpinion on custom brackets, custom motor mounts, moved engine forward 3 inches and up 2, restored van tilt steering column, 63 impala wheel, steel wheels, disk brakes, master cylinder, new plumbing, new wiring routed through conduit, filled and smoothed firewall, custom trans mount and crossmember, sectioned and flipped rear crossmember, lengthend to move rear wheels back 1.25, dual 3 gallon tanks and compressors, manual air valves, mustang gas tank under bed, "S'd rear frame up 7", custom bag mounts, custom panhard bar, raised rear bed framing and rear sill, cleaned and detailed engine, holley carb, distributer, rams horns, intake with hidden pcv, 700r4 trans, custom exhaust (check where the tips exit), new drive shaft Trucks are fun, you’re never going to win the ridler award, they still are awesome even a little beat up, they look completely transformed when dropped, my 8 year old loves it, etc. At this point I am also just glad to have a car of any kind – I shared my wifes for the last few months and it was getting ridiculous. still to do- I am making a gauge panel, installing a widened mustang split bench seat, rubber mat floor, stereo, painting interior and dash, some new glass, oak bed, tubbing front inner fenders for that last 2" of drop . . . but all of that can wait for a while. It’s time to just drive and enjoy and get back to the olds. I didn’t take any progress photos and wasn’t going to post this one at all, but I am pretty happy with it and wanted to share. More pictures once I wash it.
