    made the downpayment for it today, if it wasn't xmas or the end of the year i'd already have it.

    heres the specs

    1968 k10 burb
    307-465-205(out of a 77)
    80K original miles I'm the 3rd owner.
    original color was a copper bronze color but has been respayed in white. I'm gonna paint it the stealth grey of the new hummers. with modern seats

    it's a hatch and gate model and the rear wood was coated top and bottom, so no problems there, no rust just suface from the cheap job they did. no dents no worries......

    stay tuned.

    it's hiding, and once it is here it'll be hiding while i throw my fresh 350-465-208 at it, then jack it up for my 3/4 tons and 35's..8" lift should do nicely

    all the brown stuff by the front fender and door isn't ruyst poking through, it's dirt.

    theres one bondo spot, 2 dings. i'll probably just hit the problem area with some generic white paint til i do the body work.
