Cool Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

I've finally decided to make a build thread. I got this very solid '67 c10 stepside back in early January from 62ls1 (who has been TREMENDOUS help throughout the build) with the plans of doing a full frame off restorod. I'll let you know what's going on as I post the pics.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

It came with a factory 4-speed behind a 292 L6. We're going to rebuild the engine and then some...cause let's face it...everyone likes to go and put a v8 in and call it done.

Looks like a great truck to rebuild. What are your plans, are you going to stay stock or what?

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

We began by taking the bed off with the plans of rebuilding the whole rear section first including the chassis, 12-bolt rear end, suspension, etc.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

Once the rear half of the chassis was taken down to bare metal using a grinder with a wire brush and a sandblaster, it was primed and I began to tear apart the rear. At this point the chassis and truck as a whole were looking very solid with only minor pitting on the frame where the bed had been resting.

Well I'm not planning on anything crazy custom and I want to keep that classic look. I'm doing a 4/6 drop, wheels, some engine mods but other than that not much more.....at least I don't think right now

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

We pulled out the differential and replaced all the seals and bearings as well as just cleaned everything up.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

Here's what I've been using in the way of sandblasters. The cabinet is a HUGE help when it comes to getting smaller parts cleaned up. I'm keeping rear drums in and converting the front to disc.

Here are the same rebuilt rear drums and the Early Classic 4/6 drop (the Super Track bar was backordered).

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

Everything went back into place for a mock up with the bed on. The next step was to pull off all the front fenders, grill, etc. so that we could pull the engine and trans as well as the cab. I don't know where the pics are of this but I'll post when I get to doing those things. I then pulled the front clip off so that the frame could be finished.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

At this point I was trying to get the front clip done. I was able to put all of the control arms into the sandblasting cabinet and cleaned up the front crossmember using the same process of grinding and sandblasting. I stopped by Outback and got all new shafts, stoppers, and U-bolts and painted those as well as the 2.5" drop spindles from ECE.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

Here's some rotors we had that I blasted, painted, and got turned. I was more than happy with how they turned out!

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

I then got the American Racing Torq Thrust II's! These pictures were on another thread of mine lost somewhere so here they are again. And yes I know it's a wheel that you see on every other car/truck at a show but it's for good reason. Believe me, I looked for something that wasn't as common but the look couldn't be beat IMO . They are 17x8 all around with the rear being 29" overall and the front 28".

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

Everything looking great so far. I am interested in this build because this fall I hope to start working on my '67 swb stepper with a 250 and 4 speed.

I got them mounted up to the rear and was very pleased to see how well the drums filled out the centers.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

And at last everything came together. This is pretty much where we are right now except we have the steering linkages in and the PS box as well as a few brake lines.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

I am thinking about going mostly for a stock look on the '67. It will require a lot of rust repair work to get it to the stock look. I want to use it to cruise the back roads and small towns around here. I really like the 250 with the 4 speed.

I have a '71 with a 454 and 4 speed that will get more of a custom build, but that is in the far future since it is my work truck for now.

Re: Project: 1967 C10 Small Window

In order for the PS box to fit, the frame had to be modified which for us involved cutting out the spot and welding in another plate. Also, the radiator bracket had to be trimmed down.

Very cool I can't wait to see how that goes once you get into it.
