Re: Original Paint Shortie Thread, Lets see them

Thanks. The tires are 255/70/15's. I believe the wheels are 15x8 but am not sure as they were on the truck when I bought it. The tires are a tad too tall for
The drop on the truck 3.5/5" ece as the fronts will scrub a tiny bit at full lock.

Re: Original Paint Shortie Thread, Lets see them

They ain't pretty, but here's my 2 shortie original paint trucks. '67 C10 & '71 GMC parts truck. I think the '67 would scrub up and make a pretty fair "patina" truck. All it takes is WORK and $$$

Yes. My plan has always been to go with Coys or something similar.

All paint is original except rockers and inside of cab.

I love the original paint and patina stuff. They only have original paint once. This old girl will never see a paint gun (except maybe in the engine bay)
Took me years to find a truck this dry and straight. Rene, I envy you guys on the west coast.

All of the above trucks are beautiful.

Good looking truck. I remember when my granddad bought a truck from Littrell in Athens . I was about 10 years old when he bought it.Never know when you may see old names on the board.

Re: Original Paint Shortie Thread, Lets see them

I have a thing for original paint trucks,too. That's how I like to buy them. I've had quite a few over the years but never took pictures or don't have any on the computer. I do have pictures of ones that aren't mine:

Converted the truck to 5 lug using ece disc brake kit in the front and Moser axles in the rear.

Have a new set of 1" lower front springs and a set of 1 " lowering blocks for the rear on the way. Trying to fill those wheel wheels up a little.
