What a Piece of Scrap! Part 2

Filed under: Cars — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 6:16 am

As I was passing by the scrap yard I spotted these 2 vehicles in line to be sold for scrap. One is a ’49 Ford post and the other is a ’67 Chevy C-10 Step-Side P/U. The Ford had considerable rust but would have made a great project car.  It had a Flathead V8 under the hood.  The ’67 Chevy C-10 had some rust in the usual places but was pretty solid.  It was complete with a SBC 350 with a Powerglide trans.  I pulled the guy out of line and bought the ’67 Chevy P/U.  This will be my next project.  I think it will be a great custom.  He still had the original title from when his brother owned it.  I bought it for a song.

Unfortunately the Ford wasn’t saved.  When I passed I thought it was a Mercury and that is what made me turn around.  That’s when I saw the ’67 Chevy C-10.  My grandfather had a ’69 Chevy Fleetside that was white and yellow.  Well here is another pic of my new project.  It doesn’t look like much but it has a lot of potential.
