1976 green c10 custom deluxe

Well I think its time to get a thread started on my 76 c10 so you all can can see it and I can document the work I get done on it.

I don't really plan on getting in to deep on it right away because of my limited funds and having other projects on my hands right now but I will be tinkering with it from time to time. If it seems at first that I'm not really doing anything, don't worry, I will start pouring money and time into it eventually. LOL

So anyway...
1976 chevrolet c10 custom deluxe.
2 wheel drive, long bed.
250 Inline six engine. (currently dead)
4 speed manual trany.

Stay tuned for all the good,bad and the ugly on the truck in my next post!

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

So first off, the good:
The truck has good paper work.
Green is my favorite color.

The bad & the ugly:
Engine has water in the oil...
Has rust holes in the fenders and bed sides.
Hood is garbage.(rusting out and has the typical kink in it)
A tree fell on top of the truck denting the roof a little bit.
The brakes do not work.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something but you probably can see why this is not a over night project.

Nice truck, I'm partial to green myself. Is that Glenwood Green? Post a photo of the SPID Label

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

Not sure what green it is. It's a little faded so it looks lighter then it originally was.
The truck has been repainted at some point but I believe its the same as the original color.

Sadly My SPID is missing.

Well some good news, I found a build sheet under the seat that is still mostly readable.
I will try to get some pics of it and more of the truck up sometime soon.

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

Forgot to say that with the seat out I found some money.
I have not got around to counting it for some reason.

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

All the above info was taken from the center of the paper.
If any of you want I can get the info from the top of the paper or try to get a good picture of it.

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

I would greatly appreciate any help with figuring out some of the info here.
Some is plain and simple like "bench seat" and "250 L6" but some of the rest I just don't know.

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

The main thing that interests me that I see is the "7A 950 HD RR SPRING"
Was this for optional heavy duty real leaf springs or am I wrong?

The reason I ask is because it always looked to me that the truck had bigger than normal leaf springs for a c10.

Not really sure if I am right or wrong but here is a pic of the the leaf springs for you all to see.

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

I forgot to mention that obviously this truck has very few options.(More like no options)LOL
No power anything.(Not even power breaks)

I guess for some people the 4 speed would be a plus over the 3 speed.

Some more pictures for you all.
I borrowed my brothers camera which has a wider angle lens so the pictures look a lot better then the ones from my camera.

Re: 1976 green c10 custom deluxe

This is why I'm going to replace the hood if I can.
The last pic is hard to see but its of the spot in the hood where its kinked and the cracking bondo where someone tried to fix it before.
