almost time for this truck to get some TLC,been helping a friend with his 71 Ford 1/2t,I put this up for sale first,if it sells i make a profit and save myself a lot of hassle,if not,I'm gonna redo the cab and paint.
72 chevy c20 350 4 speed 133 inch wheelbase(camper special)
they dont make em like this anymore
I hope you keep it.
Damn good truck.
that looks pretty solid for a MN truck, I would have expected more rust.....Nice!
like the fools down here do
and keep it
I'd like to find a lighter set of rims, those steel rims are heavy but no thanks on spending $$$,it's a work truck first,hopefully i can get it looking as good as Hamp has lumpy,we just put an Edelbrock 600cfm on my friends truck,took off the Holley,he's gonna sell that to defray the cost of the new carb,and LMC is gonna get some $$ from both of us on floor panels,and other skin metal.
they are high on some things but reasonable on others, shop around and pay attention!
use some 1/2 inch box steel and build yourself a nice grill for starters.I built one for my 72 but a friend gave me the right price.so now I need to build another one...
I had a '71, C-10, lwb, 350 w/ 350 auto trans. It was, without a doubt, the most reliable thing I ever owned. I had it about 16+ years and personally put over 200,000 miles on it. It had a little less than 100,000 on it when I got it. The most I had to do was a valve job once and 1 timing chain. Never had to go any deeper into the engine. I threw a fanbelt once about 6 miles from home at 2:00 a.m. I figured - screw it, I've had it long enough. If it melts, it melts. Drove it home with the temp gauge pegged.....but it wouldn't die! When I finally sold it, it still held good oil pressure and didn't burn oil; although it did leak a bit. If the body had been in better shape I probably still have it.
she is a runner,strong compression(equal in cylinders),greasy tell me more about the grill? I need pictures,lol
