1969 Chevy C10 Barn Find With 50,000 Miles

 

This beautiful 1969 Chevrolet C10 pickup is said to have been owned by two families and with the current family since 1983.  The powerplant is a 350 cubic inch V8 with a TH400 transmission. The truck was apparently pulled off the road sometime in the late 1990s. Since it was pulled from storage its had a new battery installed along with new alternator, voltage regulator, fuel filters, and a tune-up. The great thing about this engine and transmission combo is parts are plentiful and inexpensive. You can walk into almost any auto parts store and get stuff for a Chevy 350/400.

The interior features green upholstery, carpet, steering column, dash pad, and door panels. It all looks like it’s in great shape and appears to not need any work. Electrical gremlins can be very difficult to track down and repair. The good thing is all the gauges are said to work.

The truck features the typical “ranch” bumper that was common for trucks of this era. Not only are they very large and unattractive, but they also weigh a ton. If this was my truck, I’d install a roll-pan or a stock chrome-style bumper.
