a couple 'I feel dum' questions.

I have a 70 C10 with the bench seat.

-Does the back of the rear seat fold forward? How?



What is this color called? Anyone know what paint was originally used?
Is this the best color ever used on these trucks?


Is there any suspension/ brake differences between the trucks equipped with the V8 vs the L6 to compensate for the additional front end weight with the big motor?

Thanks!

The brakes didn't change between engines, but what year they were offered. Front disc brakes showed up in 1971. All others are 4 corner drums.

Plus an I6 probably weighs almost as much as a Small Block.

The SPID should have the original paint code.... hard to say, but that green *may* be a respray.

Best color ever used? Hah, that's like asking which woman is prettier than the others.
