You ever try to get all those bits of soil from in front of your wheel wells? Public-restroom-tile green, with the long stepside box. No power anything, 240 with a 3 on the tree. However, the general appearance is far more on the work side than the play side. Needs to be just a little wider as well. Looking at the Service Parts Identification Sheet, you can see that this truck also was equipped with some desirable options. I recently acquired a high output 292 y block for it that runs that I will be putting in soon.
When they were new working trucks, the steel floors tended to be more popular, but today a wood bed truck brings a premium in the market. The added space in a Fleetside always seemed wasted to me. How good can it get? Both Stepside and Fleetside availability carried over from 1966, and revised grilles continued to represent new model-year calling cards up through 1972. In the event of a claim, the guaranteed value s on your policy declarations page is the amount your vehicle s is covered for, even if the value displayed here is different. We were mixing cement by hand and putting in sidewalks around campus. If anyone with interest and half a brain in a vehicle prior to purchase, the homework should already be done.
Second, it still runs and drives. The shortbed stepside has been with us from the advent of trucks. I know this one is rough. A grain bed is a high-sided stepside, sometimes having a slanted floor but always having a tight fitting sometimes lift out tailgate. What space remained was for gas cans, hand tools, hard hats, dynamite boxes, and all the other incidentals of an earthmoving and land clearing business. All years of this generation of Chevy pickup were offered with either a stamped steel box floor or wood planking.
The real issue here is the price. Once it had dried, the C10 looked a little like a giant Mentos, but it had surely come a long way from its humble beginnings. I loved that truck what a sound downshifting was! The floor mat could use a replacement, as will the dash pad. Hey i lived out there in Tennessee for Twenty four Years. The front end was shelved for the moment to access the motor.
The camo duct tape in the lower front and on the seat back likely cover up cuts or rips. Or if you drove a Ford you could order the optional under bed locking tool box on your Styleside Contractor, Rancher, or Camper Special. The steel floor in my wide-bed is still solid. Trucks arent supposed to be pretty they were meant to be workhorses not luxury cars. This truck is one of just 364 long bed step side trucks built with four wheel drive that year. This guy builds street rods. Bucket seats were also available.
On the good side, the door panel we see on the passenger side looks good enough to use again. How many of those have you seen? Also, I believe that the 1957 Ford Styleside beat the Apache by a year for the first widebox pickup. Anyways, this truck has all one would need for a good work truck and something that can also become a project. The short bed stepside has been about style and having a light, small runabout pretty much since the long beds became available. Not a bad tally so far! All part of trucks being sissified like everything else. He did all the hard work for me by tearing it apart. I have been restoring it to use in my antiques business low budget: here.
We just pulled it out, time for its long overdue makeover. He carried all his tools in a crossbody tool box and there was plenty of room for anything else he wanted to carry. This gleaming, powerful Chevy needed a decent suspension setup to start boogying down the road. The suspension boasted front and rear shock absorbers I thought that would be standard, but maybe they mean heavy duty shocks. It is the hard to find long bed step side. These were no fun to drive. Anything big would need to be tilted over one of the wheel humps to get to fit.
One plus is that this particular model year Chevrolet truck is sought after, mainly because of the egg crate grill that collectors love. The 1969 and 1970 C10 and K10 models look for all the world alike without knowledge of the various trim levels. The pedal and linkage must come from a 1968-72 Ford F-100, 6 cylinder. And might find time to check this rare truck out. Not about style and beauty like it is now. However, there is a lot of good news on this one. Fourth and finally, this is not just any step side bed.
Tires are up not sure about the inside rears Even has a spare. I will be out there next week for a visit. So why would anyone still want a Stepside pickup? Used to be the only pickup body you could get. Upon closer inspection, the bed box was too rusted to salvage, so he shaved the steps and the tailgate, and used a little ingenuity to keep the project moving along. I have located every part I need except the gas pedal and linkage.
