Talking Introduction and New Project '71 C10


Been a lurker for many years and just sold my 55 Belair....$ was burning a whole in my pocket so went out and bought a '71 C10 for a father/son project.

Son just turned 16 and this will be his daily driver.

1971 C10
Rebuilt 350 by PO
3 speed tranny w/floor shift by PO
manual steering and brakes
Stock suspension
chrome smoothies by PO
Side exit exhaust in wrong spot by PO

Plans for Build (simple things I can teach my son to do):
ECE 4/6 drop (seems to get great reviews here)
LCA mod
TH350 trans (have a nice built one, just need a mild stall converter)
replace worn out center support (super sloppy)
power steering box (thinking CPP 500 box?)
power brake booster and master
A/C - we live in FL (Vintage Air kit)
drill crossmember for exhaust routing and relocate exhaust and fill up the holes in bedsides
new rims/tires
maybe two tone the older home paint job by PO

Will post a build thread with some better pix once we get started...
