This 1964 Chevrolet C10 pickup is in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a complete re-do, including a chassis rebuild, complete sheetmetal repair, bodywork & paint, and a late model GM 6.0 V8 engine swap. It's going to be a great driving truck with smart upgrades for performance while keeping the original style of the truck intact.

The truck was powered by a well-worn 350 backed by a TH350 transmission. It ran OK, but was not at the power level the customer wanted.



The bed floor was completely missing, and the structure had been reinforced with some box channel steel.



The bed structure was removed prior to being media blasted.



Inside, the C-10 sported a later model truck seat, and more custom orange paint.



The frame looked fairly solid, but the plan was for a lowered ride height, so there will be work done to the chassis.

After the bed was removed, the crew disassembled the front clip.

The inner fenders and attachment points were all rusty, as were the bottoms of the fenders.



This was a rather “interesting” repair… zig-zagged sheet metal scraps booger-welded to the back side of the frame….




After removing the front sheet metal, they moved inside to find rusty floors and cab structures.





They removed the glass and the remaining interior pieces and lifted the cab off the frame.

The chassis was then stripped of its small block Chevy V8 and transmission, and the front suspension was removed as was the rear suspension and axle.









Once the frame was completely disassembled, the frame and suspension pieces were ready for the media blaster.



Then the crew disassembled the rear axle assembly, checking the condition of the gears and differential. The housing was stripped clean and prepared for media blasting.
