well guys, i know this is very weird coming from me, everyone who knows me, im a ford 4x4 guy all the way, and i would just like to say that i love fords. but i came across this truck. heres the story.
we get all kinds of donation vehicles in my autoshop class at school. well, this one came in and i fell in love at fir5st site, i dont know why. maybe it was the 350? or the long bed of a fullsize pickup? maybe it was the carbuartion and little rust it has on it? probably all of these. it also has a full bench seat which i love too. heres the things. my auto shop teacher said that if i bought all the parts for this truck, fixed it to where i can drive it home, its mine. im thinking it just needs a fuel pump, and i gotta pay for the battery and tune up kit on it, rebuild the rochester 4 barrel, and its mine, home free.
oh, i forgot to mention, its a chevy. a 1987 chevrolet c10, 2wd... and i am going to be getting this truck as soon as its done, all for less than 300 bucks.
it needs some minor body work, alot of surface rust on the hood, cracked up windshield and some of the bed got dented from fender benders. all the fancy vinyl chrome trim on the side, the fake stuff, is peeling off so im going to rip it all off. going to redo the interior, outfit it with a saddle blanket bench seat cover and maybe a carpeted dash.
i will get more pics of the engine and interior and undercarriage when i get it on the lift later on next week, heres some pics for now.
last but not least, my dad gave me 2 choices. i can keep my 1998 ford ranger and not get the c10, or i can give the ranger back to him and take the c10. i think i made a good choice, giving up my 4x4, efi v6 ranger for a 2wd, carbuated v8 chevy.
(dont mind the kid in the pic, thats my best friend cody who is helping me fix the truck.)
