Cool 1967 c10 lwb resto-mod

Hi my dad and i are new members to this forum, having dumped our '83 z28 camaro project, in favor of a '67 c10 that we found on craigslist. Now we live in the rust belt (iowa to be exact) and i dont know how you guys will feel about this truck but to us its a jewel...especially since we only paid $800 for it. This truck was owned by a farmer and judging by the condition its in, it was his go to town truck because it never towed or hauled anything but the occasional odds and ends. It has the original 250 I6 that came with the truck and a 3 on the tree. Now for what we are gonna swap in...a fully built 468 BBC and eventually a 4 speed muncie. The motor is tipping the scales at 525 hp and if anybody has any suggestions for beefing up the suspension etc feel free to give advice lol. And heres the link to the 468 on an engine stand that my dad built himself

Re: 1967 c10 lwb resto-mod

my golden rule with a patina truck is repaint all the white and black but the other colors leave them alone, for instance the inner fenders, black repaint the bumpers white repaint them

Re: 1967 c10 lwb resto-mod

I was just talking to my dad and he said he wants to stick with the original plan...to restore the truck to like new condition instead of going the patina route

Re: 1967 c10 lwb resto-mod

Re: 1967 c10 lwb resto-mod

Yeah thats the game plan maybe a few modern touches but nothing to radical...our main theme honestly is gonna be a "sleeper" because nobody will expect a stock lookin' truck with a massive big block under the hood

Re: 1967 c10 lwb resto-mod

A power brake booster is highly recommended. I just did mine last week and was well worth the $30 I paid.

Love the original paint.
