1965 C10 Long Bed

Hello everyone. Well i finally scraped and dug until i found a 65 that fit my standards. I went and picked it up yesterday and didnt get in till 02:30 this morning.
I have plans for it, just not pulling the trigger on some major stuff until i fully decide about the direction im wanting to go. I nee to do some research on this board and other sources.

Anyway, Here are some pictures and video. I had the waterproof back on my GoPro. So the sound quality is garbage.














Picking up the 65:

I like the vids! Sound quality is ok. So what plans do you have for the truck? Looks like a good stock frame off...

Re: 1965 C10 Long Bed

Congrats on your latest acquisition! She's got a healthy coating of patina, but the truck looks really solid. That color is one my favorites, too.

It's a smart move to plan out your attack before you drop the hammer. Oftentimes, guys get way too focused on the teardown that they don't have a clue what they're hoping to build it back into. If you're just looking to turn it into a patina'd driver, you're not far away at all. After having high dollar paint jobs in the past, I have come to love the spotlessly cleaned patina trucks.

I was reading on a couple other sites that this will help to tell if its a 250 or 230.
Im hoping 250. However if the after market partsd interchange i will still be happy. Intake and headers, cam etc...



Yep i was right.

FA = 230 140hp 1Bbl 3 speed.
So engine is Canadian 230 ci

Sad

Now to see what interchanges .

I want to try and keep inners. and lay body. Full frame is typically what i may do. also optins for newer frame or even s10 frame and run wider wheels and have full turn radious layed out. Im completely aware the frame is narrower. So many options. But im going to look into original frame first.
Definitly going to look at some bag jobs for what i want.

Turns out im finding some after market suff for the 230. So thats great.
