    Another non-Porsche project - 1964 C-10 Pickup

    Should be in the garage tomorrow. A stalled, mild restomod project. 1964 Chevrolet C-10 short bed step side. Should be a great cruiser when completed.

    I think so, Chuck. The hard lifting is already done. No rust, all new metal where needed, and a pretty nice paint job. Tastefully lowered (about 2"F and 3"R), disc brakes up front and a 305 small block with A-833 3 + OD manual from an 81 pickup. Needs a few final bits and a lot of reassembly.

    Won't be killer fast, but it will sound good and cruise nicely. Will fit in with the local Classic Car Cruises better than either of my early '70s Porsches did.

    Picking away at stuff. It runs again now, after an intake manifold gasket replacement, and now has brakes, too.

    And after a mostly complete new wiring harness, it is self-propelled again, albeit VERY LOUD. Comes from having open headers with no exhaust at all on it. Going to talk to some exhaust shops this coming week.

    I'd recommend Flow Master mufflers.
    They always sound great on the American cars/trucks....better than Borla or MagnaFlow.

    Looks like a fun project.

    Exhaust is scheduled for the week after Thanksgiving. Mufflers will be Flowmaster clones, as recommended by the old school shop I'm taking it to.

    Exterior is almost wrapped up. Then I'll finish the interior before the final mods - power rack & pinion steering and modern A/C.

    Exhaust and other stuff needed for road use (wipers, seatbelts, inside mirror, etc.) is now in place. New power rack and pinion conversion parts are on their way. Still haven't ordered proper fitting wheels yet, but the new tires for them are here.

    Test fitting the new wheels prior to painting them.
