my 67 c10 first build
 
4 Attachment(s)
Well im gonna start my build thread. My senior year I bought my 67 c10 from
Mineral wells, Texas. The PO said it would start and drive, but I decided not to take a chance of a break down on the way down to Pasadena and had it shipped. Once the truck arrived it had a hard time to stay running, it wouldnít go ten feet w/o dying. Three days later all of the old fuel was out of the carb and it ran fine. Itís been nearly two years and im finally starting to get to work on it due to problems on my daily (cracked block). Plans so far are to get the correct fenders and an undamaged core support, fix rust (cab corner, rocker), fix separation an foot wells, rebuild leaking th350 transmission and engine. The 350 v8 will be gone through and might get new aluminum heads from procomp and a cam up-grade and a new park brake system. Other than that im just getting started with the project and donít want to blow it apart just yet. If any body has advice its greatly appreciated.

Eric

the po did put fenders but there 69 fenders and i think its a 69 front clip minus the hood that they used to repair damage from a wreck. and for progress i have removed the clip, engine, transmission and
removed the carpet. found some seats from a 2004 grand am that i plan to use but they need to be covered

dang i didnt know you could put a 67 68 grill on a 69 72 fender

Re: my 67 c10 first build
 
Well the fenders hood and grill didn't really look right on there and the core support was damaged. Others than that not much progress since last post but I got the heads in and they were wrong and i sent them back to get the right ones. So the correct heads should be on the way procomp aluminum heads. I plan on getting the engine reconditioned and put in a mild cam soon

well the motor is built minus balancer pully and oil pan and now im gonna be moving on to the frame and suspension. has anyone boxed in their frame for more rigidity or do these frames even need to be fully boxed? i had thought about doing this but wanted to get an opinion.

Well guys, I know it's been a long time since this has been updated but the project is starting to pick up slowly, so here's some pictures. What we did is of course pulled the frame out.

Just some pictures of how everything is looking right now.

Here's the correct transmission support that's supposed to be with the truck, PO ghetto rigged one up.

http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/...ps5d47d107.jpg

The one the PO made

http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/...psadd47cf3.jpg

Here's the comparison between the supposed to be tranny mount, and the PO ghetto rigged transmission support.

http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/...ps01f8bdd4.jpg

Does anyone know what these numbers are?

http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/...psf726615a.jpg

The truck when it was originally built was made with a I-6 I'm guess it was a 250cid? But here's the take the I-6 mounts being removed.

http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/...ps00ff9c6b.jpg

Here's the correct engine mounting hardware for the sbc

http://i1048.photobucket.com/albums/...ps64662072.jpg


It seems as if I didn't take any pictures of it, but we also wire wheeled some of the engine mount hardware, and we also wire wheeled on the frame where the engine mount bracket goes. Right now he's wanting to get the frame ready for sanding blasting, so that it can start being built back up again.

Those numbers on the frame are a serial number and a build date. Looks like this '67 was built and assembled August 25, 1990:lol:

Those numbers might make reference to your VIN. I know they do on my frame. If they aren't your VIN, then I stand by my first suggestion!

Making progress is always good whether it's slow or fast.

As for that front clip, the hood, grille, and driver side fender are 67-68 parts. The passenger fender is 69-72.
