1969 Chevrolet C10 (Maroon)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Shortly after getting the truck I built a 400 small block. It is mated to the original TH350 which has been rebuilt running to a truck 12-bolt posi with 3.73 gear.
Interior
Wood wheel, add-on AC and a crap-tastic stereo. Will eventually be a split bench with a console/jump seat combination.
Exterior
LED park, side and tail lights. Will eventually be debadged. When I do the body work I will add a white oak bed with polish stainless steel load strips and bolts. I've added a Pace-Edwards retractable tonneau cover and a cowl hood.
Suspension
It has been lowered 3-4 inches all around with lowering springs, lowering Koni gas shocks and an adjustable panhard rod. I added 71 disc brakes with large drums in the rear. This converted it to 5-bolt lugs which made it much easier to fit aftermarket wheels. I added a larger front sway bar and a rear sway bar.
Wheel and Tire
15x8 Rally wheels with trim rings and flat caps. BFG T/A radials all around.
