For everyone *Trying* to tell me that this truck is a '67, read this. The truck is a '69, it just has a '67 cab. The cowl was rotted off of the original. It has everything original, hood, bed, etc. The cab from the '67 is all that's changed. It had a original big window, sliding rear glass cab.
My '69 c/10. Started first try after priming the carb. Specs:

Starting an old 283 chevy engine part 1
My son rebuilt this engine in highschool about 15 years ago. We put this in
a 67 chev pickup and ran it till the truck rusted away. I junked the truck
out and saved the engine. It was sitting in my shed in my way for about 5
years now so I decided to set it outside. So I'm starting it up before I
tarp it up for now. Its got about 35,000 miles on it since the rebuild. It
has a some what of a high lift cam in, but I don't remember what he put in
My '69 Chev C-10
This truck has survived years of abuse and keeps on running. It should have
been in the junk yard years ago. Bought it off an indian reservation in
Washington State for $75 about 10 years ago. I should have left it there.
Maybe someday I will finish it. So far it has new floor pans, cab corners,
inner and outer rockers, doors, front clip, box, glass, crate 350, 700R4,
radiator, alternator, starter, carb, headers, master cylinder, springs,
shocks, brakes, u-joints, drive shaft, Exhaust, parking, running, stop, headlights,
bright moulding, rear bumper, outside door handles, outside mirrors,
sunroof, door panels, seat reupholstery, carpet, bright thresholds,
zzzzzzzzzzzzz. It does still have the original tailgate which is a total
rust-out. As far as I can tell this thing worked hard all its life until it
could no longer move. It was parked and left to die a slow miserable death,
or as some would say "It was rode hard and put away wet"....and then I ( a
sucker ) came along.
