New Family Project

I recently aquired what will become a new family project. Take a look!

It is a 1966 Chevy C-10 long bed truck. I actually bought it a few months ago and I am just getting around to blogging about it.

The truck is pretty much all orginal and is not missing any major parts. It runs and drives great! It has a 283 cid V8 and no power brakes or power steering. It does have factory A/C that still blows cold.

The truck was originally a metalic gold color and some of it is still visible on the firewall. The guy I purchased the truck from did a complete tune-up and recovered the seat and carpeted the floor.

There is a little body damage and the bed is in bad shape. The good thing about this year is that every part is available - everything!

Kathy and Emily are having a blast driving it and they get more miles on it than I do. This should be a very fun project. I will post more pictures as we get work done.
