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.

|Trophyman||WOW. Side trim looks great!|

|techinspector1||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.|

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?

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.

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.
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

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 ...

Oh well, she's got the rest of the house
BTW, 66GMC that's a beautiful job you got going so far. Specs on the engine?
|10-25-2012 11:13 AM|
at least it's not sitting outside getting more patina...

Here's my 66 as it looked the last time it was driven (2005?)
I'm embarassed to say that I've been stuck at the "rolling chassis" stage for WAY too long. (Feb 2006!)
The date stamp on the pic is wrong, but still ...

|Valkyrie5.7||Yours is looking great. I've got rid of the 350 chevy with a 70-72 455 olds that's sitting on an engine stand right now. C heads, Torker intake, matching q-jet... came out of a boat. I also got rid of the fleetside bed and now it has a lwb stepside off a 62 GMC. Not a lot of time with a new baby. Looking for a good st-10 or muncie and a hydroboost system. Hoping I can find an olds diesel-powered 73-87 and kill two birds with one stone. Clip should swap in with very little work.|
