Never had a problem to get her started. Crank up, give her a little gas for a couple seconds and she just keeps running. Great suspension, brand new, so are the tires (about 1000miles + a couple of smoky burnouts), about 60-90% thread. The huge cam does not create alot of vacuum, so the power brakes run off a $500 electronic vacuum pump that turns on and off automatically when needed. It brakes good. Power steering is really light and smooth. Heater works, you'll be cosy warm in the winter. Has a huge aluminum radiator with 2 electronic adsustable, automatically controlled, fans. No overheating issues! It rides smooth andstraight. I think even with its current setup (600cfm carb) it can definitely hang with a Corvette 0-60 and does burnouts in 2nd gear at 40mph. Definitely a sleeper!!! The only thing negative worth mentioning on the mechanical side is some drive shaft vibration if you do a 1/4 type run. The vibrations stop after a couple of seconds and all is fine again. Its a hotrod and has some leaks when warm and smoke vapors from the draft pipe. Once parked it stops. The carburetor is a dirt/track carb with no vaccum ports which means no pcv system. Its very responsive and immediately responds to throttle input, but smoke and gases from the valve covers are not re-circulated which can get a little annoying in stop and go traffic as its very noticeable.
Interior is cozy, new carpet, good bench, aftermarket radio lighted in the same color as the truck, 3 digital aftermarket instruments, factory gauge panel with blue LED lights (gas gauge is not functional, but you get used filling up once you hit another 100miles on the odometer). Wipers and lights work, it has new headlights with HID kit. Rear lights are LED, tag LED lights are integrated into license plate bolts. The new treated wooden bed looks just awesome and turns out very robust and functional, I hauled a small ATV, wheels, etc.
While I'm writing this I realize I will really miss her a lot!!! Good times!
She is definitely a driver if you don't mind the 5mpg!!! Every gallon of gas guzzled driving this truck is worth it though, trust me!
Other than gas you save $ everywhere else: Get it registered in GA for less than $50 including sales tax! Insurance is cheap too, I have it insured for 15k with full coverage and it is around $40 a month. Value on the truck itself increases every year, its a rare 1968 C10 stepside shortbed:
