Does this stuff contain an oil? See more ideas about Chevy trucks, C10 trucks and Chevrolet silverado. For 1973, the C10 had a Salisbury rear-end and rear leaf spring suspension. Currently I'm watching a 76 chevy stepside with a 396. I've been told to spray primer over top of it before it dries and this will help make the paint stick. Truck just happens to be in the background.
For 1973, the C10 had a Salisbury rear-end and rear leaf spring suspension. It's not so much if I want to pay someone to fix it. In my area, big block trucks sit on craigslist and autotrader for months and months. Hopefully one of these days I'm going to strip what parts are salvagable and take the hull to the crusher. Original carburetor with automatic choke.
Found it again 3 years later but it was totaled. The hood is bowed in the center from because the grease in the hindges dried out. At that point he figured the only thing left to do was to turn the truck into a show truck. So imagine telling truck buyers between, say, 1946 and 1973 that their trucks would increase in value by over 1,000%. I sold it because it needed body work and paint. The bed is in excellent shape.
Most people would just buy a new hood but I'm wondering if there is anyway to straighten it out? Like take it off and try bending it somehow? The Fleetside featured a full bed with wrap around tail lamps. I've been told to spray primer over top of it before it dries and this will help make the paint stick. A lot of people love the barn-find look. The C10 was the basic, two-wheel-drive version of Chevy's C-Series line of trucks. It runs and drives fine and benefits from several upgrades that have been made over the years. I got it running the other day after it sat for about 2 years behind my garage. This is a unique truck in a condition that is hard to find.
Most of it is in the bed. Odometer doesn't work, so true miles unknown. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production. I put a wanted ad on the local classifieds in search of one. It's now Massey Fergusen gray but used to be Krylon blue when I got it. Also a tree fell on it and dented it.
But if you kept it in near-mint condition after all these years, you could see a 3,028% return on your investment. Now it's to the point that I may go get it. I intended on restoring, but we just had a baby and I don't have much time any longer. But for just two model years, it offered an attractive car-based pickup that has had a cult following almost since it rolled out of the factory. He has offered to give it to me as well as allot of other cars if he can use it when he needs it. Thousands of different cars have been built over the past century.
Engine is a 307, trany is a 3 speed manual on the column. The Cheyenne package added extra sound insulation, custom vinyl or nylon-and-vinyl upholstery, cargo lamp and custom interior trim. Most people would just buy a new hood but I'm wondering if there is anyway to straighten it out? If its sentimental value is high enough, then keep it and fix. Would love to find one in good shape nowadays. Other than that its a dry, straight solid truck. Feel free to ask questions, including requests for more photos.
Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them? Engine was in good shape when i purchased it but i had it rebuild new anyway. Carburetor has been rebuilt to new condition. I got it running the other day after it sat for about 2 years behind my garage. I personally think some rust treatment, body filler and bed coating would fix that. Curb weights ranged from 3,234 pounds for the short-wheelbase chassis and cab to 3,836 pounds for the long-wheelbase Step-Side.
