Hey what’s up dudes, I decided to finally start a build thread for my square body I’m building. I bought a long bed 1975 Chevy C10 with a 350 and a granny gear manual 3 speed tranny on June 17th 2016. Total farm truck haha. Bought it off a Marine on Camp Pendleton and stopped by Pizza Port in Carlsbad to celebrate . I then at max speed of 65mph drove the truck up to Ramona, CA were me and my good friend Garrett Peterson aka Corrosive Design immediately gutted it to nothing at his place. I bought a pre-smog Chevy with full intentions to build it into a full tube chassis centermounted and 4 - linked prerunner. I also wanted a 3rd generation C10 for the common availability which made made for a cheaper starting platform and if God forbid I ever roll her a new cab will be much easier to acquire and fiberglass availability is much easier with gen 3s then older C10s. Anyways the following morning after purchase we rented a backhoe and took the cab off, then sold the rest of the C10 still turn key and with a full functioning bed as a parts donor truck to a fellow C10 owner a few days later. It was then that largest money pit of my life would unfold haha... I’ll post pictures the day I got it and up to were the truck is now with some details along the way these next few days. Good to be back on DR guys Here is how my project began and 2 current picts of the truck.
