66 c10 short bed

I bought this truck in December with the mission to swap parts from my long bed into this short bed and put short bed parts onto my long bed. today i was able to pull the short bed out of the garage under its own power and up and down the street a couple times. tomorrow morning i will be dropping it off at the exhaust shop and well i think that should be good for now.



it was a lot to tackle and lost motivation at some points. as while i had it in the garage i also put all new suspension upgrade brakes and all new steering.

Always a good feeling when they first roll out into the sunshine.

Re: 66 c10 short bed

Nice truck i got a 1964 But i swapped cab's and put in a big window.Be careful with them all mirrors.Them trucks have some bad blind spots.

I'm more for the grampa Big camper mirrors like back in the 70's to me they look cooler and plus i'm not body man cus i suck at it.I rather dodge a accident then having to repair my pride and joy But if i have collector car ins on it at 25K run no mirrors.

Cus you want do the work you pay some one else
