Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II



My 1984 C10. The engine in it when I got it was a supposed 383. That engine had several bent pushrods and popped rocker studs. It turned out to be a 010 block 882 head standard 350 with a too big cam in it so it came out. I got a 4 bolt main roller 350 with Vortec heads on sale from Jegs (L31R). Before installing the new engine I installed LS6 beehive springs, new retainers, comp 1.6 rockers, and a SP350/357 cam. The intake is Jeg's house brand vortec manifold and I have a Holley Sniper EFI unit on that.





The interior was pretty trashed so I went over that as well. Its a factory blue on white truck with blue interior, so that's what went in. Its still a ways from where I want it to be, namely the seat cover and stereo, but its close enough that the misses will ride in it now, albeit not for long trips and it takes some convincing still.





The tailgate was trash so I snagged one out of the local junk yard and painted it to match.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Just picked up this 1979 k10 last week. Frame is rust but the body has held up well, needs rockers and has some small bubbles that need attention, going to be my daily driver.

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Long Beds Part II

Picked up this 77 K20 Camper Special during the holidays. Need to go through and clean up the orange interior and buff out the paint, but a pretty clean and solid old K20. Had to go back to steelies and caps!

Picked up this cap for FREE today off FB Marketplace



Needs a little refurbishing, plans are to paint it blue to match the truck or maybe silver to provide some contrast.

Lucky find for a very nice truck, some week end camping trips would be fun. I vote silver to match the rear bumper and wheels. JR
