65 C10 SWFS BBW "Clyde" @Poypeyes Rod Shop



This is definitely a budget build I wanna stay with a period correct look, All deluxe trim and emblems, HRF satin charcoal w/all red interior, may go with some steelies, or nostalgic set of 20s such as Coys or AR Torque Thrusts...this will definitely be a cruiser.

Right after the sale...all loaded up ready to hit the road



First time I saw it in the previous owners yard


The original owner just cut random holes in the bed for whatever reason, we'll fix that tho.


This is a pic from the previous owners build process...those chrome valve covers were the first thing to go once I got it home


This is what the rear suspension looked like when I got it (currently being redone by Poypeyes Rod Shop)...gunna do a completely new back half...simple and functional.


I already picked up a BBW Cab and two new doors for it....I like the BBW much better.


All of the structual frame work, steering, new bed mounts, brake lines are being addressed as we speak by ///Cody Stoute of Poypeyes Rod Shop in Carencro, LA

Will post more pics as we make progress

These are the wheels I just picked up for the truck 22X9.5 in the rear and 20X8.5 in the front. I got a killer deal from a guy on C10Forum.

After I got it home, cleaned it up, pulled off all the custom purple window tint,added a snazzy seat cover(mexican blanket), and of course tagged it with the Obrien Truckers club plaque that we had made. And a shot of the motor after some clean up work and new valve covers and air cleaner set up.

Re: 65 C10 SWFS BBW "Clyde" @Poypeyes Rod Shop

Okay guys...fixing to get this thread back going. I've been super busy since coming home from deployment, so sorry about the lack of updates. My plans to make this thing "just a driver" are completely out the window. After messing with this thing for a while I think its my favorite out of all of the trucks I've ever owned. Therefore I'm taking my time and doing this thing the justice it deserves.....BTW are all of my previous pics visible to everyone?

This is my vision for the truck....all original trim with a few things added, slammed on modern sized "Vintage" wheels
