“This truck has been through a frame-off restoration and body repair done by GB Customs in Corbin, KY. There is minor paint blemishes/flaws that have been identified in the pictures below. The truck is not currently in running condition, as it lacks a battery, carburetor tune/rebuild, fuel system clean, and minor work to the mechanical linkages at the carb. It will also require items on the interior, such as a seat, roof/dash /door upholstery, and various trim pieces. I have decided to pass this torch to a potential buyer who is willing to take this truck and complete what needs to be done.”
Frame-off restored 1971 C10 short bed fleetside pickup. Originally the truck is from FL (chassis is clean and free of rust). Purchased in southeast KY in 2010 and had been garage kept since. Equipped with 400 SB, turbo 350 automatic transmission, power brakes, and steering. The truck has been sitting for a number of years and needs minor engine/fuel system work to run. Truck has been customized with oak bed, shaved tailgate, filled bed caps, trim removal, rear frame rail gas tank as well as LED lights and tubular biller grill. I'm considering selling because of the lack of time and space to finish the truck up to make it right. QUESTIONS ANSWERED:Q: What work still needs to be done? A: The truck has not been started in about 4 years, but it has been garage kept since I purchased it in 2010. The old fuel would need to be siphoned out and the carburetor will likely need a complete overhaul/rebuild. The gas tank is at the rear frame rail and can be dropped rather easily if need be. The existing valve covers are too tall and are rubbing the firewall, those will need to be replaced. Exhaust will need to run from the collector back to desired locations. Plug wires are in good shape, but I would thoroughly inspect any rubber components in the engine bay. The truck does have all new weatherstripping seals and cab mounts. Mechanical linkages and kick down will need adjustment. The interior will need door panels, roof upholstery, seat, and misc. trim items. I would also recommend having the dash pad and visors reupholstered to match new beige carpeting and floor mats. This is by no means an all-inclusive list, but it gives you an idea on the scope.
