The New Old Truck

The new old truck! A 1965 Chevrolet C10 Fleetside, and I love it! It almost runs, too - just needs a fuel pump and a master brake cylinder. This truck is very similar to Ken Green's long gone 1965 Chevrolet C10 - also a Fleetside.

It has a wood bed... the first old Chevrolet that I have ever seen that still has a wood bed. It's not the original wood, and does need a little work, but still - I think it's very cool. These old trucks used to come with wood beds, but most of the time people weld in sheets of metal when the wood gets weak - or just let it rot out.

A Chevrolet C10!

The interior. The black plastic was covering up the driver side window, which was "lost" inside the door.

The gauges.

The horn button... with the red bowtie... another "first time I have ever seen that!"

That's cool! My '61 still has the remains of it's original wood bed, but someone welded in a piece of metal over it.
