Cool 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

Finally getting around to putting the pics together and trying to do them in order. My build is a 67 Custom Big Window A/C truck, all original except for the rust. The truck was given to me (woohoo!!) by a great friend last September. I helped him clear a peice of land for a older gentleman who gave him the truck as payment. It wasn't pretty - I was stung 11 times by hornets and he gave me about $50 for helping him. Guess it paid off!!!!
Here is what has been done so far, and I will try to keep the pics coming and update them on a regular basis.

The day he gave it to me it had been sitting at a body shop for about 5 years.

I had the truck towed to the shop and realized it's potential.

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

I have recently worked on the sheetmetal - rockers (inners and outers) floor pans, gas filler delete, bed stake holes delete, rear marker light delete, and just started the upper right roof rust delete.

I finished sandblasting and painting the chassis, and started installing the airbags and fuel cell. I did a disk brake 2.5 in drop spindle and added a 71 rearend for the 5 lugs. An adjustable tracbar was a must for the bags and may have to move the front crossmember forward about 1 inch.

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

The front crossmember was already installed and now it has to be removed to move it forward suppose we all learn from these builds.....errrrrr. Well better to do it right the first time. The bags in the back were not quite as hard to figure out.

Thanks nuke1, feels good to have friends like that. Got the front valves for the airride working this weekend, small acheivements really give incentive and keep ya motivated! Was able to help my friend a little with his build this weekend, 71 Cutlass 442 Convertible.

I didn't expect to find that much rust on top of the cab, and it's still not done.

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

Thanks Oarngesi, still wanting to see the motor between the frame rails. Should have it back at the end of this month. Still wondering if the rims will fit the bed when airred out?!!? 22s on the back may cause some clearance issues. My car has 17s and it dwarfs them.

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

Thanks bro, wanted to make my first real project a frame-off. Got the windsheild out this past weekend and wanted to put it back.....rust at the top under the weatherstriping and the bottom. Got the top taken care of for the most part, but still have to work on the bottom. Found a great bodyman who comes to the shop and does some great sheetmetal work.

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

It is from Summit Racing (SUM-290108) is the part number it is $153 bucks right now. It did take a little persuasion to fit....but only 3/4 of an inch or so off of the back crossmember on the passenger side from the center to the rail at an angle. Thanks for the props.....trying to keep the project goals in line!

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

You are lucky with the accident on the R6... I lost my best friend last March while he was riding his bike.

Anyway... back to a happy note.

Awesome build! It looks like things are coming together nicely.

Thanks 72! I was worse than the bike! Things are working out nicely. Supposed to rain here in the Houston area for a couple of days.....again. Have you heard anything from bigmikescustomz, or his health?

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

Here is the score. I found a bed on CL for $750, got the bed, a right side window regulator, AND delivery............$600. Thought that was a good deal!!! The bed is really clean, but the tailgate is an aftermarket so it will be going on CL. The bedside trim is also going to be sold.

The back is rather simple. Just use the factory spring bolt hole on the trailing arm, then drill holes for the bolts and piping to the top of the airbag. I will take some closer pics and post them for ya. The tank will reside on the driver side under the bed behind the rearend....well, that's the plan for now. The compressors (2 380C Chrome Viairs) will be mounted to the frame, just have not made up my mind yet on that.

Re: 1967 C10 Custom Big Window

Thanks Hart_Rod!!! Hey Nuke1, been checkin out your build too.....SWEET. I agree with you, the rims look great with the trim on the bed. I have already filled the trim holes everywhere else, but it would make a nice change when I want to give my ride a different look in the future!
