Got a sweet 68 c10 lwb for 3500 from a guy about an hour and a half north of me. I've wanted a " shop style " truck for a while . Something that isnt to nice but not a POS either . This truck has a 350 2bbl that runs great , 3spd on the floor , a newer bench seat and it has all the farm truck accessories including west coast mirrors and hd rear bumper , it was used for a lot of its life push starting dirt track cars . My plans include getting a shop name painted on the doors , fixing some rust , lowering it some , dog dish hub caps , tinted windows.

Yes. It's rusty and beat, but it's got good 4 wheel discs and nice aftermarket suspension. Could use a little more power, but its fun to drive and gets lots of looks.

I rebuilt the original 12 bolt rear with Yukon posi and axles, but kept the 3.73's. I have a set of steelies and chrome caps to change up the look every now and then, these are stock take-offs from a '15 Tahoe and the tires are way to big in the front, but I got them for cheap. I have a mild built vortec 355 and 700r4 I plan to swap in the next coupe months and a bench seat from a 88-92 chev with the shoulder seat belts to install. I plan to replace the floor pans and cab mounts and leave the rest. Unfortunately the entire windshield frame is badly rusted out, so I don't plan to restore it. Having a ratty truck that handles well has its benefits though :)

She was rough when we pulled it out of the field it had been sitting in for 18 years. I think you got the best year, love the color too!

I love the steel wheel look im going to put 18in coys c-33 wheels on this . they look like steelies but are aluminum. does yours have PS? honestly why I fell in love with the truck is because its solid and unmolested . no one ever went in and hecked the wiring or body up so I feel 3500 bucks was fair, plus 67-68 are the best looking years imo. the bed is the worst part because some of the braces are rusted out but this isn't a resto project.

btw I have an 88 bench in this truck, super comfy but need to sit lower.

Had my 72 for a few years. Put a 5.3 4l60 and suspension kit. Used it for remodeling houses and worked great. Replaced rear springs with bags and was able to load a pallet of concrete and still do 70 down the hwy. got 30 mpg and would smoke newer muscle cars every time. Sold a month ago for $15,000. Great truck.

Love the 1967-72's. I've had a few K5 Blazers and Jimmy's over the years as well as a 67 C10. I wouldn't kick one out of my garage. A 72 Blazer was my daily driver (summer and winter) and newest vehicle for a few years. I'm always amazed how many unrestored C10's you still see driving around. Don't see many Fords or Dodges from those years.

Son is a big fan. Has a 70 GMC C-1500 (350 with a 3-speed) he bought and fixed up when he was 15 and still has 14 years later, and he also has a 68 K20 Suburban he picked up in So Cal when he was in the Marines. The K20 now has a 12v Cummins and a 6-speed he dropped in. The K20 Suburban is rare, less than 300 made I think.

I picked up a 69 short step side C-10 for my wife a few years ago. I'm in the middle of swapping the 250, 3OTT for an carbureted L31,700R4.

Been a fan of the 67-72 Chevrolet/GMC trucks for years, have owned several to include 2wd and 4wd. First 4wd was a 72 Blazer which lead me to my current '71 4x4 long bed. 350 with Edelbrock intake and 625 cfm carb, 350TH/205 transfer, added original factory style tow hooks, tach, am/fm radio, tilt column, custom 40/20/40 seat. Line-Ex bed liner and moved in-cab tank to rear under the bed.

I LOVE those year trucks and I've probably owned 12 or so in the past. I had a '72 Cheyenne Super swb 4x4 loaded that I sold several years ago. It was orange (my favorite color) and of all the cars and trucks I've sold, I regret selling this one the most!!

My parents had a green 68 C10 when I was a kid. I've always liked them. I tried to buy one about 5 years ago, but the prices were already skyrocketing by then.
