Description 1970 C10 Swb, frame off, New 500hp 406

1970 C-10 Swb 2WD

I purchased this truck several years ago from a family member and had a Total frame off restoration performed. This is a true SWB truck and not a cut down LWB which are getting more common!

This truck ALWAYS draws a crowd and is a consistent show winner.  I would judge the paint an 8 out of 10 as there are a few inperfections (I am picky)  however as you can see by the pictures the truck is quite stunning. My plans were install a steel cowl induction hood at some point as such I have not bothered to fix a few minor spots on the hood.  The current QuickFuel carb set up is great however I had planned to step up to a FITECH system  running a fuel commander, this would be a great upgrade to an already awesome engine!

The truck runs great and is VERY strong. 

I am moving onto to another project so I am letting the truck go. I am not looking for any trades however I would consider selling the truck as a roller (minus engine/transmission) 

Below are the specs, Note that I have over 500 pictures in the photobucket link showing the extent of the work performed! I also have a book of receipts that will go along with the truck.  The orginal trim pieces, paint codes, HOK gold flake and any other spares that I have will go with the truck.

 I have the truck for sale locally and reserve the right to end this auction early.
