C50 custom high option questions

Ok so I found another big truck by accident this one is 3/4 across the country but wow. It's a 67-72 c50 guy hasn't told me year yet. But it's a custom has the badges on the upper doors. Has 350 4 speed 2 speed rear 9 1/2 foot flat bed on the back tach manual throttle power steering power breaks and a/c. Also has a chrome front bumper and stainless grille trim. No I have seen a lot of 40-60 but never any with all the fancy stuff. It's missing some under hood a/c stuff but that can be remedied I am really interested in it. It runs well and he adjusted the brakes needs a little floor work but I don't care about that. I want to polish it up and drive the wheels off it.

So real question is was there a custom in the big trucks and how many were loaded like this. Can't be too many.

I'd say that's a pretty rare truck! Judging by the roof lights, if they're original, that's at least a 1970 to 1972. Even has the custom horn button too, very cool!

Re: C50 custom high option questions
