Description for Chevrolet C-10 1962

This old workhorse was found in 2005 tucked away in the original owners barn. It is a cool surviving, riginal farm truck with patina and rust. Originally purchased in Romeo, I from Carter-Rymills Chevy-Olds (still has the remains of the dealer sticker). It was registered/plated until 1981 and after that it was only driven short distances around the farm. The original owner caused the dents on the passenger side brushing against a few trees once he couldn't see well enough to drive it anymore.

The truck starts right up, rives, tops and shifts good. The truck is in good mechanical condition, he Stovebolt-Six engine runs very well without smoking or burning oil. This was the last year GM produced the 235 engine and it has the original oil-bath air cleaner. This is a base factory truck with radio delete and the only factory options it has is the deluxe recirculating heater and door locks. It has manual steering and manual drum brakes. The interior is in ok condition for the age but has tears in the vinyl seat that have only been getting worse. The body has rust along with older floor, ender and rocker panel repairs. The front cab mounts are rotted and wood spacers were placed inbetween. The wood bed is falling apart. No cracked glass but windshield has a wiper mark.

Since 2005 it has received many new parts and it had been driven daily for several years. I was focused on making sure that it was mechanically sound while leaving its original look. New driver and passenger lap seatbelts were installed. There are less than a thousand miles on the brakes/wheel cylinders and rebuilt master cylinder. The clutch and slave cylinder only a few hundred miles on them. Here is a list of some of the new and replaced parts.

- New Radiator although the paint is now peeling off

- New Brake Pads

- New Wheel Cylinders

- New Clutch

- New Slave Cylinder

- Rebuilt Master Cylinder

- New Battery and battery box

- New Chrome side mirror

- New glove box

- New Seatbelts

- New Dome lamp

The carburetor should be rebuilt soon since it bogs when you push the pedal but once the truck is warmed up it seems to be fine. The exhaust pipe will need to be replaced as it has pin holes and is broken in a couple spots (currently held together with hose clamps). It could use new tires, he current ones have developed light cracks but hold air and are drivable. The truck is complete except for missing its hubcaps. Comes with the original 1962 Owner's Manual.

I have too many projects so it needs to find a new home and I want to see it enjoyed by someone else. Truck is located in Ypsilanti, I. This is an original truck, o please see pictures to judge condition or ask questions prior to bidding.
