Project: ’67 Chevy C-10 Rat Rod

Filed under: Projects — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 6:00 am

After saving this truck from scrap I decided to make my first Rat Rod.  I was told the motor was a Small Block 350 but after doing a little research I found out the SBC 350 wasn’t offered up till 1969.  The two small blocks offered in 1967 were a 283 and 327.  I have yet to run numbers to see if the SBC is original to the truck or not.  It really doesn’t matter to me, just curious.  The 1967 Chevy C-10 P/U was also the first year of this body style.  The ’67 and ’68 were basically the same but the ’69 did have some slight changes with the hood and front fenders that make interchanging panels a bit difficult. Here is the truck in it’s current state.
Here is a pic of a truck I found on eBay that best shows my plans for the ’67 C-10. The only differences will be the truck will be Flat Primer Black rather than the Red and I’m considering chopping the top about 3 inches and adding airbags to lift and lower the truck at will just like this one. Also the doors will have the Miss-Lou Motor Mafia Logo. It’s gonna be a fun build that I hope to involve my family with.
So stay tuned for updates on the project.

    • There are several resto part houses that can help you with the restoration of your C10. I use Classic Industries and LMC Truck. They seem to have the best selection of GM approved reproduction and original equipment. Hope this helps you.

  2. Nice truck. That is how they should look. Keep your fancy overpriced and overglorified paint jobs. This is where its at.
