1969 Chevy C10 This is a 1969 Chevy C10 with a 350 engine and a
th400 transmission. The diff is a 12 bolt with 3.73 gears. The
truck cruises at highway speeds no problem. Does about 3,000rpm at
65mph. The truck has powered steering and powered brakes. Rides
smooth with zero shakes or rattles. I have owned this truck for
four years, and the previous owner was a friend of mine who I would
help work on the truck before I purchased it. Over this time period
the truck has been slowly restored to the condition it is in today.
Almost every single part of this truck has been gone through with
all receipts/paperwork of every part purchased or work being done.
The engine in the truck has a four bolt main with crank casting
number 3932442 showing that is a 350 engine. The engine has been
bored 30 over making the actual displacement 355 cubic inches. The
engine also has a mild cam with long tube headers, an hei
distributor, a mini starter, dual plane intake, four barrel
edelbrock carb with electronic choke. The radiator has dual
electric fans on a fan shroud. The fans are temp controlled set to
turn at 185 and off at 175 with a thermostat at 180 degrees. With
this set up the truck has never overheated, and very rarely even
hits 190 degrees. The engine pulls and sounds great with no
mechanical issues or fluid leaks. The th400 transmission was
rebuilt a year ago and shifts smooth. The transmission has a stock
stall torque converter with a B&M floor shifter. The interior
is in overall great condition as well. The bench seat does have one
small green stain on it (about 1/8 inch) that I have not been able
to remove with any of the methods I have tried. I have not taken it
anywhere to be looked at, so it is a possible a professional might
be able remove the stain. The gauge cluster has been replacement
with a Dakota Digital. I do still have the original gauge cluster
along with addition face plates for the aftermarket gauge cluster
to change its color.
