C-10 = 1/2 ton C-20 = 3/4 ton C-30 = 1 ton, all of the body parts SHOULD be the same. Is it a 6 banger, 283 or a 327? a granny 4 spd? and what do you plan on doing with it besides restoring it? What conversions are you talking about? ....engine, trans?

This truck is a 283 or a 327 ? Was originally a 6 banger then later converted. Truck was used by my father as a tow vehicle for a race car. If car broke truck was tore apart to fix car,once race was over truck was put back together and then we came home....this was done many many times. It has a granny 4spd with a pto drive. Wanting to upgrade brake and possibly the tranny and make all body repairs that need to be made..

While it's not exactly the same, I did some pretty major upgrades to my old 66 3/4TON in my profile picture. It's been a number of years since I sold it, but I might be able to remember some of the brake upgrades. Let me sit on it awhile hehe.
