The story of finding “Eileen” started with talks of my wife and I having our daughter Waverly. Jokingly, while discussing starting a family, I proposed to my wife that “for every kid I gave her I would get an old car or truck.” Well 9 months later my search began! It took 3 months of searching to finally find a vehicle I wanted. After 15 hours of pulling a trailer to Colorado we stood in front of a misrepresented GMC C1000. 5 minutes of looking over the GMC I knew that I wouldn’t be bringing it home. Defeated and tired my wife April and I scoured the neighboring cities and states looking for promising leads on the way home but our search turned up empty. 8 hours into our trip home, April found a truck that was only 15 miles from our house. Immediately I contacted the seller and set up a time to go look at the C10. When we arrived we found a beautiful truck. I was very nervous on the test drive, but after a trip around the block I knew that I wanted it. I initially didn’t make an offer but waited 2 days to do some research to make an informed decision. The day I purchased “Eileen” I knew I had made a good decision. I am the 3rd owner and the odometer reads 12,544 miles. In addition to the spare parts I also received a box of paperwork. In that box I also made the discovery of the original sales receipt of $2,330.00. It’s a beautifully kept truck with the original 230 and 3 on the tree. Modifications I have done include a front sway bar, and the holley sniper 2300 kit for fuel supply.
