1969 Chevrolet C/K 10 Series c10 (Yellow Truck)
Last updated Jan 18, 2007
only thing original to the truck since I bought it is the cab and bed. Oh, and I call it the yellow truck b/c it used to be yellow, and the name didn't change with the new paint.
The engine is a 350 bored .40 over (357ci). Stainless Steel crank, 302 chevy rods, 10.5:1 compression flat top forged alum. pistons. The heads are 462 hump backs decked to 58cc's ported and polished. 1.5:1 comp cams rockers and .600 max lift springs. The cam is a solid crane with 536 lift and 288 duration (grind #: F-244/3454-2S-6). Cam is driven by a pete jackson noisy gear drive. Intake is a weiand team-g high rise. Carb is a holley 750 double pumper. The engine is starving for fuel though, I'm currently playing with jet sizes and getting ready to put the fuel cell and electric pump in. GM perf. billet distributor with MSD ford cap. MSD 6AL ingnition and blaster II coil. Engine makes power and pulls hard all the way up to 7,000 rpms, If I had better rods I could shift higher. Tranny is a TH350 with a 3k stall and b&m shift kit. Hurst quarter stick. Custom built one piece drive shaft. 12 bolt possi with 3.73 gears.
used to have cruise control and a/c among other options but they are sitting on the shelf now.
It's lowered 6" inches in the back with 4" drop springs and 2" blocks (going to put 4" blocks on it soon) and 5.5" in the front with 2.5" drop spindles and 3" drop springs. The wheels are 15x12 in the rear (not narrowed just mini tubbed) and 15x6 in the front. Obvious that its black primer, soon I'm going to fill all the trim holes and shave the door handles and marker lights. Then I'll put a new (much nicer) coat of flat black on it. I just bought a louvered hood for it recently, I'll have pics of that as soon as I get it painted and put on. I also have a tail gate, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
