Daily Driver The 1961 c-10 story

99 LS1/6SPEED SWAP in a weekish

Overview

This is my cousin's 1961 c10 from a real dry area and min rust . He got it as a roller and pair of trucks . He made 1 with all the best parts and a 350 voertec short block roller engine and tbi heads on top and edelbrock carb . Backed it up with a 700r4 and he swapped in a newer 10bolt mid 80's rear that had 2.73 open .

Next he ditched the torsion bar front with a mid 80's c10 front swap . He even did the p/s box swap also . He then used a s10 booster and master for brakes and he has been driving it a lot .

Next post here will be transformation to a real daily driver sleeper ...... :cool1:
