Adams 67 K10 Build

I've followed this website for a few years now but the time has finally come to start my own build thread, this is my Canadian built 1967 K10 I bought a few weeks ago that I'm going to be restoring. It's a little rough but its exactly what I was looking for.
It has a 292 and a M20 4 speed manual
Since it was built in Canada my brother got me the GM Canada vehicle information kit which I'll post here when I can scan it as well as some updated photos, the ones I've posted below are from when I went to look at the truck several weeks ago

I'm going to be hopefully putting it back to the original 514 Red after I hopefully find a box without a warped floor and holes drilled everywhere on the bed rails







Looking forward to everyones input

Thanks

Adam

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

I'm not really sure what that wing nut was for? I think the truck has had a fair amount of attachments at one point, the doors have holes for towing mirrors with little plastic plugs in them now that I'll have to fill before I paint it

If anyone has any thoughts on why that wing nut is there I'd really apprieciate it. I'm not sure if those inner fenders are original or not due to the finish, but then again underneath someone has painted everything gloss black which I'll have to go over at somepoint and clean up

I've got the interior of the cab repainted in the original color, I'll post photos shortly

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build



Heres a picture of the updated interior colour, I painted the inside of the cab in 514 red which was the original colour the truck was painted in. The climate controls are hanging down because I got a bit of overspray on them by accident and need to clean it up before I reinstall it.

I also painted the bezels on the dash cluster and glovebox in the shade of silver my first car was, a 2006 Impala since I had a spray bomb left over of that colour and thought it was a neat detail for my classic chevy.

Does anyone have any advice for dying seat belts of buying new material for the original retractors and buckles? I'd really like to reuse the buckles and retractors since they're in great shape

Thanks

- Adam

I'm not really sure how the truck ended up in Ontario, the last two owners were in Ontario as well and I have some service records from British Columbia in 2008. It seems fairly worn out which leads me its not the first time the odometer has seen the 13 thousand odd miles it indicates haha

Hey Thanks I used to be through your area all the time driving to Windsor where I went to school. Even looked at a couple trucks down there before I found this one.

Unfortunaltly I've put the truck in storage for the winter but will be doing my best to get more pictures for this thread of any work I do when I go check on it in my friends shed.

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

Small update, painted my wheels white and picked up some tires this week, truck is getting some paint in April so I'm working on moving the fuel tank under the bed so I can fill the fuel filler on the cab in before paint

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

Thanks, the truck is currently in storage and I've been fixing up bits and pieces at home. It should be coming home once the weather warms up a bit more so I can get it ready for paint. I've ordered a blazer tank to mount under the bed which is the first big project I'd like to get accomplished before paint. I've got the steering column rebuilt and cracks on the steering wheel filled in and both are painted and reinstalled

I'll get some updated pictures next time I'm out to see it which may be later today.

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

I'm not 100% certain, but they don't look like original inner fenders. That wing nut looks like a grounding nut, for what I don't know.

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

Its from GM Canada, any vehicle sold or built in Canada can have this package ordered about it, it also came with a big package of specifications and options that were available in 1967 which I've seen posted here a few times but is handy for reference.

Heres some info on it for anyone interested

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

Bit of an update, pulled the bed of the truck today and managed to get it upside down on some saw horses so i can wirewheel the bottom and give it a nice coat of POR15 along with the frame while I've got easy access, I've also included a picture of the refinished steering wheel and painted steering column which I installed new bearings in. Will post more photos as I need to stop taking the truck apart and re assembling for paint which should all be happening within the month so I can drive and enjoy the truck this summer.

I've also ordered a blazer fuel tank which I'll hopefully be installing before I put the bed back on so I can trim the nessicary crossmembers and work on a fuel filler.

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

So heres a nice update on the trucks progress, I've got the bottom of the bed wire wheeled and painted



Put a new coat of paint on the valve cover and new gasket, also got rid of the T shaped quick release fasteners that were holding it down, I also repainted the inner fenders and reinstalled them after sorting out a strategy to attach my fender badges that doesn't involve removing the inners again



And heres some better pictures of the exterior of the truck

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build





Truck is currently in the paint shop and I stopped by to get some updates pictures, the bed is primed and it mounted on the frame to figure out a fuel filler for the blazer tank then will be removed again for paint.

Getting pretty excited to see it red and white

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

Hi Ken, I'll keep posting some progress pictures for you as I go out there to check on it. I'm having South End Body in Goderich do it for me, was the best price and has been super helpful with different ideas I've had for the truck from different two tone combinations and figuring out a fuel filler for the rear mount tank.

That said they are booked pretty solid thru the summer from my understanding as I have a friend whos trying to get his Skylark painted and is having a hellova time trying to find someone to do it for the summer.

Thanks Adam please do keep us up to date on your progress. I don't need it done for the summer so I'll be interested to see how you make out.

It's hard to find someone who will do body and paint on these old trucks. I'm not falling for the give us $10 grand and we'll let you know when that runs out and we need more mentality!

Re: Adams 67 K10 Build

Small update on the truck, went out to check on paint progress and not much happening there in the past week unfortunately, but I did find a nice set of Western slot mag wheels that I picked up off Kijiji this weekend. The tires I bought for my other wheels won't fit so these will have to wait a bit before I work on getting them rolling on the truck. I'm thinking I may try and get some tires and a 2.5 inch Skyjacker lift kit this winter to have something to play with next spring.
