1968 Chevrolet C-10
. *** Any questions email Patinaplantation@gmail.com or call 216-789-16471968 C10 I purchased 2 years ago out of Illinois. The man I bought the truck from said it was from Arizona, the frame is super clean. The previous owner started a mechanical restoration first and planned to do cosmetics at a later time as he was using the truck as his daily transportation. He started with a full suspension and brake up grade fromEarlyClassic enterprises. Included was new coil springs and shocks, 2.5" drop spindles, and a power disc brake conversion. The truck was converted to 5 lug and a new set of Rally wheels and new tires were installed. There was a new power steering gear box installed with most of the front end suspension and steering parts. The engine is a 1974 400 Small block with a Weiand intake manifold and an Edelbrock carb and MSD Ignition . New ceramic headers and completeexhaustwas done at the same time and that was less than 3 years ago. The windshield and front and rear window seals were replaced. Once the previous owner started on the interior restoration and pulled the heater box out he realized it was going to be nearly impossible to continue driving to work without a heater on a daily basis and decided to sell it and buy a more practical vehicle. So with that being said, the entire interior needs a make over, door panels, dash, seat, etc but already has a tilt column in it. The truck does run and drive but the heater is out of it. It needs little things done to it here and there but all minor and mostly stuff from the interior disassembly. All the glass in good, the bumpers are nice, the side trim has some dents and dings. The body is extremely solid, the only repairs I have found are the outer locker skins and some repair work on the rear lower body braces. The undercarriage is dry and the frame is smooth without any heavy pitting or corrosion. When I bought the truck, it was pearl white and someone one keyed down both sides of it,so we gave it a fauxtina paint job that came out great and most people wouldn't even know unless they were told. On the interior there is some corrosion starting right above the windshield near thesurvivors. The engine and transmission are dry without any leaks or abnormal noises. All in all a good starter project for someone that can be driven locally until the interior and other small items are addressed. I don't thinkI'veput more than 50 miles on it in the last 2 years since I planned a complete rebuild anyways but time constraints and recently completinga similar project for a customer has my interests changing into a different era truck.
