Lightbulb 77 K10 one owner. I'm now the 2nd owner.

Howdy all!

I haven't been on this board in at least 5 years. I had sold my '71 C10 and '59 Apache so I just kinda faded away

Now I'm back and I have just brought home my uncle's '77 1/2 ton 4WD powered by a 400 small block. The body is straight and clean save for some wear on the paint and a bit of the moulding on the tailgate being bent and minimal rust.

He kept it mostly under a carport. Odometer is broke so I don't know actual mileage but he did baby it as it is his favorite truck. My job is to maintain it and I plan on leaving it as original as possible. I look at the truck as a time capsule or a historical artifact.

Runs great although the 200 mile drive home was a bit sketchy as she liked to walk a bit. I think new front end components are top priority

Probably a worn out steering box.

Neat truck, with a lot of period accessories it looks like. Dual spotlights, front bumper guards, fog lights...pretty neat.

This might be one of the best looking trucks I have seen in a while, something about those accessories work together so well. You also got to love that garish 4x4 sticker somebody slapped on there

I've always been one for 3/4-ton and up trucks... but this one is perfect! Period correct, not lifted like most K10's I see and a great shade of blue! Got yourself a nice rig there...

The blue with the one year only ochre trim is very cool.
