    Default Newbie and his 1966 C10 Fleetside...

    Hey all, I picked this beast up today from the second owner. He bought it back in 1983 and at some point dropped a 454 to it. She still has drums all around and the trans needs to be rebuilt as it only goes into first and reverse. Included was a spare trans that is supposed to be good BUT I think I might drop a 4 speed in. Here are the specs I was given from the old timer that owned it, claims around 500 ft-lbs torque:

    bored out 30 over
    heads milled 50 thousandths
    block decked 60 thousandths
    525 lift cam
    high temp flat top pistons
    balanced crank
    750 CFM Edlebrock carb
    350 turbo trans w/shift kit & trans cooler
    Hurst speed shifter
    Sundial shift light 6" tach

    I will start a new thread once I get it to my shop, I have never dove into a project like this..other than a boat, I intend to go with the sleeper look and back to the original red paint. Overall the floor is solid, the cab, bed, frame is good, a few bubbles on the bottom of the doors. It is drums all around still, I plan a disc brake all around & drop 2" conversion.
