• 1972 Chevy C10 – Tom E.

Green Garage Find

Almost 11 years ago, I was at a customer’s home. Sitting in the garage was this ’72 C10 that he had purchased. I saw it and asked him if he would sell it to me- I got a “no.” Well, every year, I asked him for his truck. I got “no’s.”

Finally, in December of 2018, I was working at his house and he agreed to sell it to me. I found out that he bought it from a man who restored it and had it painted this cool metallic green. The only things I have done to the truck is add the wood grain steering wheel, wide rally wheels and tires, valve covers and air cleaner, a few things in the cab, and Felix parking lights. And now, I have ordered from LMC the nice radiator core covers and top. I will be lowering it 3.5 to 4 inches next week.

I found a Hot Wheels that they forgot to put the flames on. Kind of cool having a Hot Wheels of my truck.
