1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

Well here we go...
Bought the truck about a month ago from a gentleman who said he found it beside a chicken coop, buried in chicken sh*t and dirt. He spent some time on it cleaning it up a bit. Then put new brakes and exhaust. Elderbrock mainifold and carb. He then added the rally wheels and HEI. So some of the stock stuff is gone but seems to be pretty good shape except the normal rust areas. It runs great, I have put about 500 miles on it running around. Note the horse trailer behind it. ( Daughters wedding set up and dismantle hauling stuff with Goldie)
Odometer reads 79XXX miles on it which he was told are actual miles has not been rolled over.
Now what..
I think I will do a frame off and mechanical rebuild nothing wild just stock and seal it up and get rid of the rust and preserve it. Lots of inperation and information here I know I will need it.
A thank you to Captainfab for the once over on the truck, I sure I wil be using that valuable resource.
Anyway here is some current photographs before I start the tear down, I keep putting it off I love driving the truck...

Welcome to the 60-66 K10 club. Not many originals / stock around, so there are only a few.

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

I have this stamped on the passenger side block in front of the head. I thought this was supposed to be the VIN.
Any help?

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

Well thanks again to Capt. Fab for hooking me up with a great meter guy. So I have started the dismantling of Goldie.
Anybody have any info on the the prior post these numbers are stamped on the front passenger side of the block.
Pictures to follow.
I also need to learn about gearing change 373 to 308. Are the ring and pinion gears the same for the front and rear dif.
Thanks

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

Stamping is engine code, not all engines got a vin, I am more familiar with corvette codes, and someone with a book handy will probably do better but this is what I think your stamp breaks down to

V=Flint Michigan plant
04= 4th month April
I0= I think they used I in place of 1 to differentiate from L, so I think this is 10th day

WO is suffix for 283 manual trans, 2 bbl 175hp k10/k20 in 1967 (makes most sense for your truck, but is also a 307 in 1968, and 350 in 1969

If it still uses a canister type oil filter you can bet its an earlier 283, but it could easily had a spin on adapter added over the years

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

Kool truck nice looking original good to see your using it, I've heard a lot of people over the yrs say that they enjoyed there trucks a lot before they restored them. And now there afraid of scratching them up. Of course I can't blame them after that especially with a wooden bed floor who would want to tear one up after it's nicely done...I'll be watching progress...

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

Glad to hear that Rob is going to be able to get your metal work done.

To change your 12 bolt to 3.07 gears, you will need a different carrier. I'm not sure on the Dana 44 but I don't think you'll need to change the carrier. The truck 12 bolt and Dana 44 gears are not interchangeable. I believe I do have a disc brake Dana 44 with 3.07 gears if you are interested.

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

Doing the tearing apart now, front clip is now with the the body guy, kind of doing the body work one piece at a time. Bed has been removed next is the cab. While the body is off I will go through the running gear. Going to try to keep it stock. It will be a fun winter project

Re: 1966 K10 SWB Sepside Goldie

It is currently a gold color I think it's called saddle color code 525. I am not sure on the interior it has the fawn with a brown dash and grey glove box and radio delete.
I need to research the interior and see if the current color combination is stock if it is I would like to keep it that way. Like I have stated before I want to keep it as stock as possible, except for the gearing. I would like to change those to a more highway friendly ratio.
