Got my truck in 2013, no motor, trans or rear end. Picked up a used 350CID, was given a ’79 C10 rear end and springs and shackles. Purchased a TH400 tranny. I completely rebuilt the motor. I purchased new tan leather bucket seat and console. Installed 3 inch exhaust. With scavenger pipes (ends under the axle-old school style).
I have done all the work myself in my garage (73 year young gearhead). Now 3 1/2 years into the project with a little more to do (lowering spindles, bar grille).
