DURG's Black 65 C10

First time on the board here, but I'm sure I'll be back often. I just bought a 65 SWB BBW Fleet Custom Cab in 500AA Raven Black last night. Originally built in St. Louis, sold new at Harold Gwatney Chevrolet in Jacksonville Arkansas for 2154.00 I need to pick it up in a few days and bring it home.Truck now has a 327 small block with a turbo 350 tranny and 3.08 gears with a new Eaton posi.I spent the last 5 years doing my 62 Impala SS and now have the truck for my next project. Not sure which way to go with it yet and need to do lots of research. I've been looking at everything from mild static drops to the drop member setups and have no idea what I want yet. The Impala is a resto mod with full air ride rolling on 18 and 20 inch wheels with a 383 stroker, Tremec TKO 600 5 speed manula and a Ford 9" with an aluminum center section and 3.70 Tru Trac diff. Here are a couple pictures of the truck and Impala.

Put that thing on the ground with the same wheels as the car and call them twins. Car is badass, truck is clean.

Great photo of a beautiful Impala. The truck looks to be in excellent condition no matter what direction you choose to take it.

Re: DURG's Black 65 C10

Hello and to the board !!

I have to echo the comments on your Impala!
The 62 and 63s I think were among my faves, and it is nice to see someone with a car interest as well.

I cannot wait to get home and spend some time with my Tempest this summer!

Hope you have fun with your truck, like has already been hinted at, they are going to look sweet side by side !

Re: DURG's Black 65 C10

First things first. I have ordered the Coys C-5 Gray wheels in 20" and 22" that match the Impala. The wheels on the truck now are 6 lug 16" Wheelvintiques powdercoated black with their centers. They will make someone a nice set when I no longer need them. Talked to Porterbuilt last night and I am leaning toward their coilover optioned dropmember and four link setup. I put a stock steering wheel back on for now too.

Re: DURG's Black 65 C10

Looks like I will be going with the Touring front coil over Dropmember with a four link rear coilover setup from Porterbuilt. Trying to finalize specifics with Nate now. Damn shipping from Arizona to Maine on this heavy stuff is a killer. I'll be looking for a high hump with the mating firewall piece too.

Nice Impala! I dig the new truck, and the interior looks to be in great shape. Look forward to seeing progress on this build.

Good luck with the Porterbuilt swap....yes, shipping sure can hurt when it is a long distance away....it will be an awesome ride when you get it done.

Re: DURG's Black 65 C10

Just got off the phone with Porterbuilt. Order is placed for the Touring front Dropmember with coil overs and the four link rear with coil overs. Also ordered the rack and pinion, all the tubular a-arms, sway bar, and coil overs and springs. I'm still not planning the tear down until fall though. Frame height should be around six inches with CPP Modular drop spindles and my 20" and 22" wheels.

Sounds good. I've been driving it around a bit. I replaced the left arm rest and added a right one also. Replaced one of the broken heater levers, new exhaust donuts and gaskets, and picked up my Nitto tires. I will be waiting on the rims for a while as the 22" rears were not in stock. I have ordered the 2" drop CPP modular spindles. I went and got a high hump today and I thought it was really good at first sight, but the left side is rotted where it bolts to the floor. I'm going back to get the firewall piece in the morning but that is slightly rotted on the left as well. I need to keep looking for a better one but it will allow me to at least cut the floor using it as a template when the time comes. I have a brand new set of Yukon Gear and axle 6 lug axles but as I am doing the 5 lug, I won't be using them. Is there any demand for the stock 6 lug stuff? They list for 192.00 each on Summit.

Re: DURG's Black 65 C10

I started pulling the truck apart in anticipation of getting all the new parts. I will post a ton of pictures as most seem to like the pictures. Some will be very basic disassy pix but some guys really like that kind of stuff too.

Re: DURG's Black 65 C10

I've read alot of the posts about taking out the rivets in the various crossmembers and mounts. I just step drilled the holes and they punched out fairly easily.

These photos shows the progression:

She was born with a low hump, but I have a high one located and I believe I am getting the 62 Hydraglide style bolt in front section as well.
