1966 Chevy C10
Posted 15 December 2015 - 08:00 AM
It's a 1966 C10 all original minus the fenders and the tailgate. 250 I6, 3 on the tree, drum brakes, manual steering and cool as hell!
First order of business is to get it road ready and then we will tackle the rust in the floors and fixing all of the patches that were done already.

Painting up the rally wheels
This showed up while painting so I slapped it in, super easy!
New glovebox emblem too
I also ordered these up for the new wheels, should be here in a week and look killer!

I'm stoked to get the crummy Nissan wheels off this thing and get some proper wheels on it. Center caps come on Thursday!

Also noticed this little guy on the driver's side. Didn't see it until last night, I think it's pretty cool!
More to come in the coming weeks

I should have the motor and tranny out on Sunday and then I can pressure wash the heck out of the whole thing, paint the frame and start installing all my parts! I have a CPP disc brake kit on order and hopefully I will be ordering a Wilwood brake and clutch master cylinder this week. Way too nice of parts for way too junkie of a truck but it's going to be so sweet!

Pulling the engine
Starting the bed tear down. I worked on as many of the underside bolts as I could while dad was cutting the heads of the fender mounting screws. He did an X in each head and used a chisel to break the heads off. Worked great!
We also broke the boards loose of the mounting bolts and just cut the heads off with the cutoff wheels.

Bed wood out and bed off. We ended up cutting all the bolts that hold the bed strips in too. I'm going to redo the floor with some nice plywood when I'm at that stage.
All cleaned up with a Rockwell photobomb
Plans this week are to pressure wash the frame really well and wire wheel what's left behind. I'll be getting some POR-15 and coating the whole frame with that. Pretty soon it will be time to start working on fun things like brakes and suspension

Yep! Back in the day, the GMCs were leaf sprung in the rear and the half ton Chevys were coil sprung. It's a very simple setup with 2 control arms and a panhard bar. The control arms attach to essentially a leaf spring perch at the axle with a u-bolt and then a bushing at the frame.

Saturday, I took the Jeep out to Cars and Coffee on my way to my buddy's house to work on his FJ40. I was able to park the Jeep next to another buddy's Coyote powered F100
The task for the FJ40 was to get the 350 in it before the end of the day. That was my goal anyway, my buddy was more concerned with drinking and smoking with the neighbors. Oh well, I cut all the brackets, drilled all the holes and got most of the welding done so it was successful!
No cherry picker!
Yesterday, I started getting the 292 sealed up and put back together and drilled some holes in my firewall. I'm hoping this week to have the motor all sealed and painted
