Chevrolet C-10 1965 Description

""OL RED"" You are bidding on a piece of my personal history here. Ive owned this truck over half of my life. Ill give you our history together after this discription of it. This is a sweet 1965 short narrow bed Chevy C10. It has a 406 small block chevy with a mean sounding lumpy cam. Edelbrock carb and intake. It has a 700r4 OVERDRIVE automatic. Power steering, 4 wheel power disc brakes, impala rear end. This truck went a frame up nut and bolt restoration from 1994 to 1998. Its had about 17000 miles put on it since then, showing on the odometer. Its been parked inside since 98 and only been rained on a handful of times. I bought this truck when I was 14 years old for 1000 dollars off of a local car dealer. It wasnt setting on his lot for sale. It was parked, hid in the back 40. We sandblasted every piece. My dad and grandfather did most of the work since I was only 14 and just learning. I wanted to sell the truck when it was in a million pieces. Thats when alot of guys give up on the big restorations. But my grandfather had built wrecked cars all his life and knew how to get them done. All I saw was a pile of parts. So we all finished it up. Papaw painted it viper red basecoat clear coat. And he wet sanded and buffed it. I drove the truck to the last day of my junior year of high school for the first time ever, open headers of course! Then, it had a th375 trans, stock rear end, 6 lug manual brakes, and out-of-date wheels. The truck stayed this way until i sold it in 2003 to a man in georgia. Oh yea I showed it a few hundred times growing up. Ran out of places to put the trophies. Threw all of them away years later cleaning out some storage. So the truck was gone and i always kind of missed it. I was driving home from work one day in january of 2010 and I got a phone call from a man that bought the truck from the man i sold it to. He said my phone number was laying in the glove box and he had lost a lense to one of the bed roll lights. He wanted to know where i got them. I knew right off and told him. He said thanks and was about to hang up, I said wait a minute can the truck be bought. Yes its sitting in the showroom on my little car lot. One week later it was loaded up and headed back to Kentucky. It had been sitting and the fuel system needed cleaned out. I finally got that taken care of and my papaw passed away. He never got to see the truck again... So in this process of life, getting married, having kids, buying a house, you know that type of stuff the truck doest get drive all that much. I never show it. I take my oldest to school in it sometimes and pick him up. Just short trip stuff. Since Ive had it back I did the transmission upgrade to the overdrive, the 4 wheel power disc brakes, and the rear end. Oh when I had it in high school it had the hated/loved rotchester quad carb. Man that thing sounded like it would suck the hood down when you stomped it. The other guy didnt like it I dont guess and switched it to this tame edel carb. No where near the power but Id say its much better fuel economy, if your in to that stuff. Oh i forgot I swaped wheels and tires since then too. So these tires have maybe 500 miles on them. The trans that in it is an electic speedo and the speedo in the truck is mechanical. So that needs addressed if you want a speedo. Oh and I cut the huge chrome slant cut 90s tips off the back, but I left the neon licence plate thing. I didnt have the heart to take it off. It shocked the snot out of dad when we were hooking that thing up, so it stayed. Yes Im listing it for sale again. I have 2 young kids and a wife that is preggo and a regular cab truck just doesnt work well. And I kinda like to use a truck as a truck and this one is just too nice to haul anything. I had a ton of memories of this truck. I have folders of pics from when it was being built. Anyway my cell is 859-585-2659. You can text also. Or email any questions or cash offers. No trades.
