Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II



My 1984 C10. The engine in it when I got it was a supposed 383. That engine had several bent pushrods and popped rocker studs. It turned out to be a 010 block 882 head standard 350 with a too big cam in it so it came out. I got a 4 bolt main roller 350 with Vortec heads on sale from Jegs (L31R). Before installing the new engine I installed LS6 beehive springs, new retainers, comp 1.6 rockers, and a SP350/357 cam. The intake is Jeg's house brand vortec manifold and I have a Holley Sniper EFI unit on that.





The interior was pretty trashed so I went over that as well. Its a factory blue on white truck with blue interior, so that's what went in. Its still a ways from where I want it to be, namely the seat cover and stereo, but its close enough that the misses will ride in it now, albeit not for long trips and it takes some convincing still.





The tailgate was trash so I snagged one out of the local junk yard and painted it to match.

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.
