Nice project you have there. I'll keep an eye on it's progress. Your in good hands here.

p.s. I'm trying to get the higher ups to move this thread to the right area. Don't worry we'll get it moved to the 60-66 projects and builds. Everything will stay the same just moved.

Nice work on the bed. Any more pics of it? Or words of advice? I saved the metal bed floor from my '78 donor truck, planning on doing the same thing.

I learned to weld a lil on a guys farm/ranch that i work for! i don't know how i would go about craftin the '78 in! the '70 i just oblonged the 4 holes in the rear cross sill! that took alot of time checking the fitment! yes, those are seatbelt latches and they work great have to push the driver side in first then the passenger side! u can pull the truck back and forth and won't open but, it works! seeing that i'm new to this i need to figure out on postin new pics. this past weekend the bed came off and i started cleaning and paint the frame and i got all new parts to do the front and rear suspension! i got to rebiuld the rearend, its got the 3.07 gears and i have a '65 parts truck that have 3.73 gear i'm gonna put in! as of the engine and tranny i have a 305 and 700r4 thats rebuilt thats going in for now! later i'll change the motor out but still keep the 700r4!!

I reread your build and didn't see which fuel tank you will be using. Maybe I over looked it. Nice progress so far.

Re: my '64 c-10 swb project with steel floor from a '70

thanks for all the comments!!! i have gave myself a deadline of 1 1/2 - 2 yrs, i think thats a good bet!! the only thing i'll have to spend money on now is for a wiring harness, windshield, interior odd and ends, radiator, driveshaft shorten or not and freshen up the motor and trans that i have but thats about it!! this is gonna be a dd for sure but a nice dd!! i really want to get it on the road and enjoying it more, i enjoy working on it but would love to be driving it!! i will be starting to paint the new parts tomorrow that way they are dry by this weekend! i think its gonna take a good part of a weekend to strip the frontend off clean and paint the frame then put all the new stuff on!! i will try and take picture of the progress tomorrow and again this weekend of the frontend before and after!! stay tuned!! lol!! any comments or input are welcome and does anybody know where i could get this parts that i need?? thanks for looking and any replies!!

Re: my '64 c-10 swb project with steel floor from a '70

i also have been helping my buddy with his 69 gmc he got/stole for 3 grand! the guy he got it from needed money pretty bad and ask my buddy to make an offer! its got a 350/350 4.10 or 4.11 posi rear, the hood hinges were broke, brakes were really really soft, needs a few odds and ends in the interior like the window felt, the high beams don't work, but all in all i think it was a steal, since i got that in parts for my truck and its not even running! i told him i had the hood hinges from my 70' parts truck and a 3.08 rear if he wants it and we worked on his truck! the good thing was now his looking for parts for me since i hooked him up, and i don't got to scrap all of the 70' cause he will be getting other odds and ends off it!!

Re: my '64 c-10 swb project with steel floor from a '70

more pictures!! before and after!! 3rd. picture is before i touched the frame, 1st. and 2nd. is after the 5in drop out back, look and the toolbox and you can see the drop and the last picture is after the 4.5in. drop up front and 5in. drop out back! the rims are all 17's the chrome ones are 12in wide. 3??/60/17, and the 07' stock rims have 235-70-17! height wise the stock tires are 1.5in taller then the chrome ones! i only have 3 of the chrome rims, so i'm going put the 07' stock rims on all 4 corners, put the 235-70-17 on back and i have 235-60-17 that will go up front, and that should give me a lil rack to it! besides putting the engine, trans, fenders, hood and stuff back on will longer the front too. the bedside is only 12in. front the bottom side to the ground! i'm 6'2" and can see over the cab easy about nose high i would say!! so what do you guys think??? ANY comments?? thanks for looking!!
