Default first truck... 63 c10 shortbed with 65 cab.

well i got tired of hondas so i bought this amazing truck project. its a 63 shortbed c10 with a 65 cab ( how i hate whoever changed the 63 cab). Ive always wanted one and now finally found this got it for $700 with 6 boxes full of stuff. it has the original 283 . Had a 3 speed but the guy i bought it from swap in a 350 turbo trans. pic of the truck the first day i picked it up .it has the bed but it wasnt together. its now on the truck.




i hate white so into cheap primer it went right away ( rattle can). it has alot of dings and bondo in it so body work is a must. so for now it will probably stay this way.




today i painted my tailgate. its supposed to look all sloppy i havent got my airbrush out yet too do highlights and shading.



right now im building my engine. its a 283 small journal bored .40 over to make it a 302 clone. im putting the bottom end together tonight on it so will have more photos soon. also wiring up the turn signals and brake lights tonight if i have time. hope someone likes my new toy lol.

So its been awhile since ive updated. Between work and family no time. As of now the truck is all together, Body work is 80% done ( shaved trim, mirror holes, fixing all the nasty half ass bondo i have found) .
I redid the valve seals in the stock 283 , rebuilt the carb, redid shit tons of wiring. dropped the truck 3 inches in the back had to make my own block kit since it has a trailing arm, so u bolts had to be custom made and used steel square tubing for blocks. Front has been dropped from nasty monster truck height to slammed. Sits about 8 inches off the ground from bottom of bumper.
its all flat black again . bought some 4x4 rallys for it. Has 275 65 15s in back and 245 65 15s in front. Getting ready to start the wood bed in it soon. Also having tailight wiring issues so ive been doing that bullshit for a little while.
Thats all thats been going on. I will have pictures up pretty soon to show progress. Over the winter i plan on bagging the bastard to let it sit at the level i want. the 302 chevy i have been building is at a stand still. I have to have the heads redone and checked so money comes into play . thats about all.

Alright so its been a minute since I have updated this . I couldn't get my phone to upload pics to this thread so I'm just going to paste a link to all the progress of the engine and body. I'm going to stick with the green primer for now. Also waiting on the headers and a pinion seal for the rear end, then I can finally drive it somewhere others than in and out of the shop.

That Skylark is awesome too, man. Can't wait to see more of your work!

You got a deal on the pickup for sure, I have always wanted one of those to run around town in.
