1970 Chevrolet C-10 Additional Info:

1970 C-10 Swb 2WD

I purchased this truck several years ago from a family member and had a Total frame off restoration performed. This is a true SWB truck and not a cut down LWB which are getting more common!

This truck ALWAYS draws a crowd and is a consistent show winner. I would judge the paint an 8 out of 10 as there are a few inperfections (I am picky) however as you can see by the pictures the truck is quite stunning. My plans were install a steel cowl induction hood at some point as such I have not bothered to fix a few minor spots on the hood. The current QuickFuel carb set up is great however I had planned to step up to a FITECH system running a fuel commander, this would be a great upgrade to an already awesome engine!

The truck runs great and is VERY strong.

I am moving onto to another project so I am letting the truck go. I am not looking for any trades howeverI would consider selling the truck as a roller (minus engine/transmission)

Below are the specs, Note that I have over 500 pictures in the photobucket link showing the extent of the work performed! I also have a book of receipts that will go along with the truck. The orginal trim pieces, paint codes, HOK gold flake and any other spares that I have will go with the truck.
