1972 Chevrolet C-10 Cheyenne Super Sport

The Truck:My dad got this truck in a trade with another Cheyenne. Both were owned by the same guy who daily drove this until about 2005 when it developed some "serious top-end tapping" according to him. He removed the carb, master cylinder and radiator to put in his other truck (we also ended up with that one but it's long gone now). He said he replaced some rockers and then lost interest in the project and parked it behind his warehouse in 2005 or 2006 when gas was getting super expensive. It was "covered" on top by the building overhang, but was still exposed somewhat. He said when he parked it back there it didn't have a speck of rust on it. We bought the 2 trucks from him in 2012 or 2013 and I had intentions of building this one because it was such a nicely optioned one, but other projects have taken priority. We didn't get a title with this truck, but it has it's last Texas tags on it so shouldn't be hard to track it down. In Oklahoma, services charge about $200 to handle old titles. Gas tank is present and nice, just removed to clean up the truck cab.
