1969 Chevrolet C-10
Up for sale is my 1969 Chevy C-20 3/4 ton truck. It has 11,123 miles since the frame off resto-mod and installation of the 502HO crate engine. I've driven it regularly. It looks, sounds and runs great. I love this truck but I have another and I want both to pay off a credit card buy something more practical for long trips. If it ran on compliments it would be the perfect vehicle. I'm setting the starting bit at the minimum I will take and I won't deviate from that. You're absolutely welcome to come have a look at it. I'm going to list all the quirks and flaws I can think of now. Like me it's almost 50 years old so, we all have them. It loves gas, the tank is mounted in the cab and isn't all that large. Be prepared to buy fuel. It's slow to warm up. Let it idle a couple minutes before you take off and once you do let the transmission warm up before you get down hard on it or it will slip, this won't happen when driven normally or after more than a few minutes. I have purchased a new rotor for the distributor but not installed it yet. For a couple weeks it occasionally would not crank until I popped the cap off the distributor and gave the rotor a flick. I haven't figured that out yet but if it happens again before you buy it the new rotor will be on and if it doesn't you'll get it with the truck. I purchased distributor itself new from GM about 2 years ago. The not-factory air conditioning doesn't work. It hasn't since I bought the truck. I roll down the windows. It's not been high on the to do list. The compressor clutch engages but there's bubbling in the sight glass and no cold air. I've been told this indicates low refrigerant. I don't know. The truck has manual steering and power brakes. I'm used to the manual steer but my girlfriend won't drive it. That could be good or bad. The brakes could use an equalizer block I think. I've had to get on them hard a couple times over the years and the rear of the truck was a little squirrely. If you're accustomed to the way newer cars handle and brake be aware this drives like an old truck. It won't stop on a dime without the rear end breaking loose, so turn into the skid, ease clench in your butthole and release some pressure on the pedal before you make a mess. The interior felt on the driver's door window is kicking up slightly when you roll the window completly up. It's a very minor nuisance to tuck it back in when you've rolled the window down. I've put a couple nicks in the paint on top of the tailgate with some ramps I use. Also best dog is not included at any price. Thanks and good luck bidding.
