From Arizona 69C10

I'm in Arizona. I purchased 1969 C10 SWB medium green/white two tone Custom/10. 350/th350.

It was completely taken apart and was last running in 2002. It sat, baking in the sun since then, though it was tarped. It took me about a year to get it all back together and driving. Almost 90% of it was upgraded and or new parts installed. I did this in my garage, first time putting one together in this condition. The only portions outsourced was having the new American Auto wire 69-72 harness installed and few odds and ends, shifter linkage and throttle linkage and new Ebrake installed. The hood and driver side fender were messed up, so those were replaced and painted. While getting them painted I had all the exterior green done. Just a small scuff and paint nothing insane.

I do have the proper original hubcaps chrome with blue bowtie, I just don't put them on, they cost far too much, so I use the white with yellow bowtie.
Anyway, that's a quick summary.

I also have a 78' K5 and previous to the K5, I had an 83c10 and then a 77c10, both of those have since been sold.

Looking forward to chatting about these trucks

Welcome! You could paint the bowtie blue on the white caps and they would look like factory caps again. The yellow bowties were used on the squarebodys

Speaking of squarebodies, can we see some pictures of the K5 too? Great looking green truck. Glad that you snagged it and were able to put it together and back into use. Welcome!
