Default 1967 C10 pictures for flash...

Ok John, I finally made it over there today and got some decent pictures. It isn't much to look at yet, it's in pieces. I just finished fabbing up the exhaust system and hangers last week. Going to start disassembling this weekend so I can finish welding up the frame and get it ready for paint. Also have to finish welding up the exhaust and then clean up my welds before it gets coated. The doors, hood, and tail gate still need more body work, and then paint.

Here is the frame and running gear...

Thanks, I feel it is pretty darn good considering the cramped spaces we work in. (limited time and money too)

I dug around and found some old pictures from roughly two years ago when we had just finished the frame and were mocking up the engine/transmission.

Your welcome John. I have been helping him work on it since he bought it in 2007. To say it is a long term project... is about spot on. It started out as a complete, running truck. It had a stock frame, fleetside bed, a Buick 455/TH400 swapped into it, and a BOP 12 bolt rear. Basically, we used: the cab, wiper cowl, hood, grille, driver's door. The rest is either new, used later model, or hand-fabricated.

I just cant stay away from this post ,something about these old trucks just clicks with me .I keep trying to convince myself to give up on mine and part it out but I have a small fortune tied up in it .Did I really type the word Small ,Im terribly wrong on that ,large fortune really .I miss my truck but I dont even like going to visit it anymore ,too depressing .
