I hate cleaning frames more than about anything. Did you clean it yourself? Looks really good!

Re: Factory big block and ac swb 1970

What a great truck to start with.
If these trucks had any restoration value that would be the one to have.
On the other hand that is part of what makes them so much fun, since they don't have any restoration value the sky is the limit on creativity, we can go full restomod and no one even bats an eyelash, infact the crazier it is the better, you gotta love that!

Re: Factory big block and ac swb 1970

Sorry ever one had to move to a new house so the c10 had to sit. On the move the por 15 did not turn out the way I wanted to so I had it powder coated and I started building the front suspension.

Looks like a super truck you started with. Big block short trucks are pretty rare birds. subscribing..
