Our new 69C10 project

Here is the start of our build, My boys and I (13 & 11) flew from Oregon to Texas and bought his 69C10 from a fellow board member and drove it home over 6 days, it was the trip of a lifetime for us and worth the price of the truck, although my wife s not so sure of that after I started buying parts! Started out life as a 6 cly three speed SWB and now a Vortec350 with a 700R4, ECE drop and just finished the 307 Eaton posi, so she cruises down the road 70mph @ 1500rpm. Now off comes the body, we got a perfect rust free cab and doors at the soda blaster!

Re: Our new 69C10 project

They are so into it, I get a call every time a part shows up to let me know what it is, The cab and doors were in worse shape than I expected, and the frame nneds some attention, but we found that cab with doors, it only had 37,000 original miles and there is not even a spot of rust anywhere, not even the doors, I couldnt believe it. She runs out nice the PO did a nice job on the drivetrain, it only has 2700 miles on it now. My 72 will be my 13 year olds first truck in a few years, we have been doing a little on it, not too nice but much nicer than anything I had when I was growing up.

Re: Our new 69C10 project

That will make a great first truck for him. My son and I will be starting on my old 68 SWB as soon as I get my 72 done.

Re: Our new 69C10 project

I'm in. So awesome that your boys are involved. My 4 year old son made me thank the lord the other day when he said " daddy I want a old truck like yours... ...but with a big block." The wife said I have him brain washed.

Can't wait to see more of your truck.

You can't blame him for wanting a big block.

Re: Our new 69C10 project

Just got the cab and doors out of the soda-blasters, now its on to PPG sealcoat and then in goes the box. Putter is going to do our cluster with all autometer pro-comp from Shon is in the works, so next week we tear down the old cab and front sheet metal and start on the frame.

Re: Our new 69C10 project

Did you do the soda blasting or someone else? Did it take it clear down to the metal?

Re: Our new 69C10 project

I had a local company sodablast.com do the work, its down to bare metal inside and out, they did a outstanding job, they also sell small soda blast equipment, but I had them do the cab, doors and fenders in their booth. They are local and great to work with www.soda-blast.com in tigard, Or.

Re: Our new 69C10 project

I had read up on soda blasting and considered buying a unit to clean up doors, etc. until I read about potential paint adhering problems afterwards. You have to do a really, really thorough job of cleaning the soda up off the metal afterwards. This includes seams where the soda will reside and be hardest to remove. Just mentioning, though you are prob. already aware. Otherwise looks like it cleaned up nice! Have fun with the build
