Yeah, it’s not a Mopar. I‘m not married to a brand. My 1st car was a 64 Barracuda, I‘ve served my time scrounging junkyards for parts. My day job is tied to another OE.

It’s got a big block and disc brakes.. it’s a GMC so leaf springs instead of trailing arms. It’s long bed, but that is temporary. 1st thing fixed was getting the throttle cable to open all the way. Next up is sorting the brakes. It’s booger green, so it’s now named booger.

Is she a 10 series? What big block is in her a the factory 402 or replaced with like a 454? And did the gas tank get relocated?

It’s C1500, so disc brakes and leaf springs unlike most C10’s. Fuel tank is still in the cab. I need to check the casting numbers, I suspect it’s a 402/396. The truck was originally a 350/350 combo.

This looks to be a fun build. I love older trucks!

Casting numbers checked out, it’s a 454 with 2 bolt mains and 8:1 compression. Collecting parts to get the brakes rebuilt and cut it down to a shortbed fleetside.
