Re: Mesquite 1966 C10

I just hope it rides as good as it looks.

Thanks Alan, I am really enjoying this build. It's much different than my previous builds, the shop space, frame off, the quality of aftermarket parts and last but not least my bolt bins from Fastenal. Man me and my Dad where the king of the coffee cans full of bolts....

The plan is coming together, looking everywhere for wheels and tires, looks like a LS3 with T56 Magnum is a very good possiblity.

No, maybe that's the problem. Not looking for classic more late model.

Re: Mesquite 1966 C10

This is offically a LS Swap build: LS3 Gen IV 6.2L (376cu in), aluminum block & heads, 430 hp @ 5,900rpm, 424 lb.-ft @4,600rpm, max rpm 6,600.

My oldest son and 5 of his friends were working on one of their trucks in the shop when I got home, after I uncrated this beauty there was a moment of silence

Made some brackets for the Ride Height Sensors. Will cut tie-rod to length during final assembly.

You will need more than 9.5-10 inches of rubber on the ground with that beast of an engine. BTW, nice shop.. It is almost as nice as mine!!!! LOL, no seriously, LAUGHING OUT LOUD!!! Nice build and with the sentimental value the selling price should be in the "unobtainable" range....

Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

I've been watching your build, your shop has much better lighting and ventilation . I have already told my kids, there will be no selling of this truck. This build has been good therapy for my Mom she can't wait to take a ride in it.

As I get older I'm more interested in 30 to 75 than 0 to 60 I hope it will hook up for that???

Re: Mesquite 1966 C10 - LS3 W/Air Ride

My brother sold my grandpa's 63 GMC about 3 years ago to a group of metal salvaging pirates that happened by the house one day. I didnt talk to him for a year. If I could have found it then I would have used it, but it was probably used to pay the federal debt to China.... I bet it has been turned into steel rebar for China's interstate system. Boy there is some salt in a wound... But since I couldnt get it I settled for a replacement.

Oh and you should be able to do 30-75 sideways...
