(Updated 4/3/2008 with actual photos)
Since the MGB had to go and we had another seat on the way, I needed to get something that seated 3 and more fitting for my soon-to-be father status. But I still wanted something old and interesting, and I only had about $2,500 to spend. I wanted an old truck, so I got one.
These are pictures of my 1971 C-10. Mine was fairly loaded, optioned similar to the “Cheyenne” package which gave you the white sides, side & tailgate trim, different marker lights, chrome bumpers, mirrors & hubcaps, etc. It was a long bed 2 wheel drive, with the 350 V8 and the “350 Turbohydramatic” automatic transmission. It also had factory air conditioning, but of course it didn’t work.
I really loved this truck. It drove great, looked good, and had a huge bed. The paint and chrome actually shined when it was clean with no visible rust. I liked it so much you will see another one in a few weeks. Is anyone seeing a trend here? Out of 8 vehicles so far there are 2 71’s and a 72.
