Edelbrock RPM Air Gap
Holley 3310 (750 CFM)
Hedman headers
Lots of chrome

Overhauled the TH400 and installed shift kit
B&M Nitrous Holeshot 2400 RPM stall convertor

I had the engine built with an underdriven 6-71 blower in mind, but that seems like just a dream at this stage of the game.
Suffice it to say that life has been getting in the way ...
I hear you there. I got my 455 weeks ago and haven't gotten a chance to pop a head on the thing. Just collecting dust at this point. Either way, that's a killer deal you got on the 454 and th400.

Cab Corner Splash / Gravel Guards for Step Side Bed

I fabricated some gravel guards for my '65 C10. OEM style are available aftermarket for about $80 a pair. I've got $15.00 in these, and modified the design to hide the reveal on the back of the cab.

Eazy Peazy

For more details and a drawing of these click on the build thread link in my signature line.

Here are some photos:

I used the same "Faux Patina" process that I used on the rest of the truck


As viewed from under the truck. The guards screw to the rear cab braces, in the same holes as the OEM guards.

And a comparison photo showing an OEM style guard:

Here's my 64 C10

It has a 350/700R4

All new brakes and lines, it's going into my garage so I can start on the body.

Custom Side Trim - 1965 C10 Step Side SWB

Finished the custom side trim on my C10 today. I used some used OEM trim but modified the layout from what was used at the factory. There's more details in regard to the trim in my build thread.

Chevy never installed factory side trim on their step side beds, circa 1963 thru 1966 trucks. Even when they used side trim on the cab and front fenders, no trim on the bed? So, I figured I'd jump in where the factory left off.

The added white color on the rear fenders balances out the two tone paint. Kind of an homage to the Bel Air trim Chevy used on their factory Hot Rods.

So tell me, what do ya think?

I don't have one now, but have owned several '64-'66 Chevy short bed stepsides. No prettier truck on the planet in my eyes. I like the 292 banger with a granny 4-spd. First thing you want to do is put a centerforce clutch in and replace every piece of the clutch linkage. Makes 'em drive like a dream.

I use to buy and sell a lot of those 60-66 pick-ups. Easy to work on, cheap parts and cheap to buy . My all time favorite was the 1960 model . I still love that Lumpty-Lump hood. Always went well with a sbc equipped with Lumpty-Lump heads.

They were cheap around here, but it seems more people are fixing them up they are getting expensive to buy. I have a 64 and I get asked all the time about selling it. I should sell it and buy one already done I would be Money ahead.

I like the look, the stock C10/C20's had the cheese grater grill, which was, well, cheesy

I cut the cheese grater out of mine and then added some stainless tubing for a cleaner look.

I had a '61 Apache and yeah, I always like the hood too
Mine was a beat-up work truck so it wasn't really Beach Boys material...
Somebody did write a song about it, though
