I am selling my personal truck, a 68 Chevy C10, since we put less than 700 miles on it last year. It just doesn't get driven and enjoyed like it should and we have too many demands on our time to be able to do so
It is a 1968 Chevrolet C10 with a lot of parts replaced to make it more reliable and driveable. It is by no means a show truck but you can get in it and drive the wheels off it and have some fun with it.
The motor is a 350 with just a few add-ons. It is a stock engine with a dual plane Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, Holley 600 four barrel carburetor, stainless steel headers and an upgrade to factory HEI with custom fit wires and wire holders, very clean.
When we were building this truck for ourselves a few years ago, we made some upgrades and replaced a lot of very important parts. The brake system was totally replaced, I mean everything. New shoes, cylinders, springs, hoses, drums and an upgrade to power brakes. The suspension was rebuilt with all new parts. if it was a weaable part, it got replaced. We also added power steering and CPP lowering springs on both ends. Handles great.
New radiator, heater core, blower motor, water pump, hoses and twin front mount cooling fans. It even still has the fan shroud, we don't like them to run hot.
The interior had a new dash pad, new bezel and lens on the factory instrument cluster (fuel gauge, temp and oil work,, speedo is way off), new hearter control panel and all new switches inside. It has a CPP tilt steering column with an aftermarket steering wheel. Tinted glass in the side and vents, not film. The windshield is cracked. CD player with dash mounted speakers. Rubber floor mat, B & M Z-Gate shifter.
The trans is a Summit Racing Turbo 350. It has a stock converter, very well mannered on the street and has good, firm shifts. Custom built driveshaft to compensate for the truck being lowered, no chance of it binding up and busting a tailshaft..
Factory Chevy rally wheels, 8 inches wide, with Mickey Thompson radials all the way around
The truck is a good cruiser and would make a great shop truck. We have enjoyed it the last few years but realized it just was not getting driven like it should and we all know what happens when they just sit around. The new replacement outside door handles have already popped the push buttons, just from not being used (and the aftermarket quality on these things is terrible). Lights burn, wipers work, it has bumpers and a tailgate, starts, runs ,, it just needs someone with time to drive it.
