Chevrolet C-10 1968 Description

The truck is a 1968 C10 Short bed Fleet side. The Bed is a shortened long bed with 2004 - 2006 Cadillac SRX tail lights mounted upside down to match the body lines of the bed. The roll pan is custom made. The stake pockets have been filled, the tail gate has been smoothed, and the tail gate latches on the inside. The bed cover is hand made out of trailer aluminum roof skin, 2x2 aluminum angle and is buck rieveted. The flush mounted latch locks into the tail gate.
The Engine (4.8l), transmission (4L80e), dash cluster, steering column, fuel pump and complete wiring harness are out of a 2004 GMC Savana 2500. The engine is bone stock with a high flow cone air filter, stainless steel headers into a 3 inch "y" pipe into a flowmaster with dual side exit exhaust tips in front of the passenger rear wheel.
The front suspension has been completely rebuilt or replaced. The front is lowered 4 inches (2 inch spindles and 2 inch springs). The rear is stock except the rear springs have been replaced with air bags. There's an air compressor mounted inside the driver's side frame rail at the rear of the cab, an air tank under the driver's side of the bed, and the air suspension is controlled by a ride leveling valve. There's a rear suspension dump switch inside the bed, next to the fuel filler neck (pictured) I also plumbed in a female air chuck, in case you want to air up tires, as well as a fill valve in case the compressor fails and you need to fill the air tank manually. There are 2 pictures of the driver's side of the truck. one with the suspension aired up and the other with the suspension dumped.
Brakes are 4-wheel drilled disc with Corvette master/power booster/proportioning valve. Front and rear sway bars keepher stable in the corners. The wheels are 15x8 gambler wheels. Front tires are 235/60r15 Cooper Cobras and rear tires are 255/70r15 General Grabbers. Differential is a 3.73:1 open ratio.
Fuel tank has been relocated to behind the rear axle with a Poly 21 gallon tank. The factory GMC fuel pump and Sending unit is installed in the fuel tank and plumbed/ wired like is was in the factory fuel tank. The fuel filler neck is inside the bed in the left rear corner.
The interior is a pair of bucket seats and console out of a 1999 Chevy Silverado. They are power seats, but they are not wired into the truck's electrical. Everything that came in the donor vehicle is in the truck. The tow/haul button for the transmission is mounted below the radio, and both cigarette lighter/power outlets are mounted and functional.
Both front fenders are brand new. The truck was hit in the passenger front, damaging the hood and passenger fender. The radiator core support, Radiator, trans cooler, twin electric engine fansand engine air filter are brand new because of the accident. The "grille" was added after the accident to keep debris from damaging the radiator. The bumper is off a 71-72 C10. All the lights are LED. The head lights are conversion housings with LED bulbs. The front turn signals are clear "halo" lights. Thereverse lights are LED strips mounted to the hitch receiver under the roll pan. The tg light is an LED mount off a newer Freightliner.
The worst part of the truck is the cab. Typical cab corners and rocker panels, but it'd be easier to repair a separate cab and then swap it out. The cab is really the only thing I didn't work on because I was driving the truck while I was working on it.
Mechanically, the truck is solid. I wouldn't hesitate to drive across the country to deliver the truck if need be. It's not a powerhouse, but it's reliable.
My biggest reason for putting the truck up for sale is that I don't really fit into it. I'm 6'5" and getting in and out is a pain. I recently bought a newer GMC and it's got a more spacious cabin. I always wanted a 67-72 C10, and I can check it off the list now. Thank you for looking.
