68 project

I purchased a 68 c10 friday that I plan on doing a frame off. it is a little rough around the edges but I plan on changing from the farm truck it was used for into a rolling gem
it has a 305 in it currently which will be sold and replaced with undecided yet motor

Re: 68 project

ok I will give you more then one pic cause I have been running the roads of NC all day the first thing I brought home was a fleetside shortbed with the original paint still on it needs the wood floor replaced which I am a woodworker by trade so I am going to use cypress on the floor plus do some custom woodworking for the front of the bed
Second I picked up a cab 15 minutes down the road in very good condition needs rockers and a little touch of care here and there but overall great for an original cab you all can take a guess at what I paid for each piece so I can see if I got a good deal or not
The cab is getting dropped off tomorrow at my buddys body shop. He does frame off restorations and has an awesome talent

Re: 68 project

the guy also gave me a dolly he had made to wheel the bed around which is very nice to have.
and also me and the wife got the stepside removed today as soon as I sell the motor we will be removing the cab and front clip so the frame can get sent to the sandblaster

Re: 68 project

well starting the reassembly of my project 68,, been collecting parts for the last year ,, tired of seeing it in pieces,, got the frame all painted and the new crossmember mounted, now to get the suspension mounted so I can get it a rolling frame once again then the motor rebuild will start, as that will be my next goal to get the motor and transmission set into the frame

Are you going back 68? I have an excellent pair of 68 fenders I'd be willing to trade if those are decent 67's
