1980 C10 Silverado given to me by Dad. Was his small grocery/butcher shop truck
I ordered it for him after some heated discussions that he needed a 7,600GVWR (3/4 ton
of that era)
Only got him to get the 'Big Ten', or heavy half (today's HD or superduty)
Just over 500,000 miles. 3rd engine (performance crate with a cam), 2nd tranny
(rebuilt) and new 3.73's
I put in 1 ton helper coils on the rear after seeing brother coming back from
the wholesale house and it was on the bumper stops and the tires squished
They never went more than 50 miles per day. Going/coming to work. Picking up
sides of beef, canned goods, produce market, etc.
Frame is still bent from the time I borrowed it to work on some windgenerators
up in Tehacahapi Mountains. All four corner sheetmetal have dings from it being
both my daughters first ride.
Not worth much, other than sentimental value...am keeping it till either I can't
fix it anymore, or don't want to (not likely)
