Nope, sorry I don't know what the seat were from....

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

Hey Keith, Ive been debating rather or not to trade my C10 for a square dually to pull my 53 pickup. After seeing this pic, I think im gonna keep my C-10 and pull the hell out of my cars.

How far have you ever towed with the C10, and any problems?

Thanks, Slim

No problems. Probably the farthest I ever pulled was when I moved from Detroit to Phoenix; pulled the Chevelle on the open trailer (as you see in the pic) with no issues.

I should mention the truck is a V6 with the 4 speed manual overdrive trans - probably not the best set up for trailering but if you are not going far or not pulling often it is fine.

Welcome to the board blackprimer79,
It looks like you came bearing gifts . We all like pics of a nice looking Squarebody . Nice stance . Post some specs like the tire size , wheel size , etc in the regular 73-87 Message board and introduce yourself so every one can see that truck . I do not know how many members search the sticky threads but I am sure your truck will pull the compliments .
Frank

Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

Since I am here I will post the black truck . There is a pic of it on page 1 or 2 of this thread . I had sold it and have since bought it back . I lowered it and added 17 inch Coddingtons . The look wasnt what I thought it would be so I picked up a set of 20 inch Intros for it . I like it much better . Here is a pic with the 17's then the 20's .
