Ya won't have ta buy tires for years!!!

This is one of my personal project vehicles. Been workin' on it for quite some time and turnin' out nice. Every time I drive it somewhere, someone wants ta check it out.... and then stand around and talk old trucks. My 30 minute trips ta the Post Office, Store, or where ever usually turn out ta be a hour+ trip. I guess that's half the fun of having it, huh?.

LOOKS BEAUTIFUL! with a large open area between rear axle and rear of frame for a 25 to 30 gallon gas cell to be mounted (AND PROTECTED)! (My "plan" was to remove the gas tank from behind the seat... leave the tank filler AND CAP as stock... just no tank inside, for more leg room and no "gas smell" inside cab... YES, original gas tank is STILL INSIDE and OPERATIONAL)See pictures- BEAUTIFUL NEW TWIN EXHAUST STACKS, WITH NEW EXHAUST FROM ORIGINAL CAST IRON CHEVY HEADERS TO STACKS...

PLUS IT LOOKS GREAT!(YES, this is a LATE 50's / EARLY 60's front bumper, NOT original.

I do NOT still have the 68 bumper)- ORIGINAL RADIO STILL IN PLACE(Not working... but it IS there and LOOKS BEAUTIFUL and so cool!)- STILL HAS ORIGINAL FACTORY DECALS ON GLOVE-BOX DOOR, AND HEATER SHROUD AND I.D.

THE HISTORY(Ya don't have ta read all this part... it's just a little history, of why I have her.... and why she's up for sale now...)Back in 1967 my Buddy's Uncle owned a little gas station and feed store in a little (back then) town of "Poway, California" (On Midland Road) that we worked part time for. He purchased a brand new 68 Chevrolet C-50 Flat Bed equipped just like this one, extra spring pack and all. We were both 19/20 then, and he sent us out to the valley to pick up a load of hey. We asked him, how many bales he wanted....He told us "Load her up... full! she's NEW and she'll hold it", gave us some cash and sent us on our way. WE HAD A "BLAST" driving that truck out to the valley... real "bouncy" but fun. Got ta the Alfalfa loading area (the sun was just comin' up and ya could smell the sweet smell of the fresh cut Alfalfa fields) and loaded her up... maybe to much.... but he was right she held it good. WELL, on the way back we had some steep, narrow roads ta climb... with the hill on the right side and the canyon on the left, we went up the hill, a little slow and the truck tipped over (way top heavy) on a right curve heavilybanked (goin' to slow I guess, huh)... the truck just slowly leaned over onto the bank... and the hey stayed on and laidon the bank first... so nobody and nothing was hurt... except our "pride". Of course... no cell phones back then, so someone stopped ta see if we were ok... no truck damage, no personal injuries to us... just all laid on the side of the hill... stopped... so he took my buddy ta the next town, a little (back then) town of "Julian, California" and called CHP and his Uncle... (Oh BOY!)... CHP got us a tow-truck and backhoe ta get us up-right again, and got us to a, somewhat level "Wide Spot" in the road... then we had ta wait for his Uncle ta get to us (a couple hours) with his old (1953) flat bed Chevy truck ta get the new one out of "top heavy mode", and naturally, get a butt chewin' from the CHP. No ticket.. just a real good chewin'.... and back then... they were good at it too! A couple hours later his Uncle showed up, he made sure we were ok and checked his NEW TRUCK... Then we got another REAL GOOD BUTT CHEWIN' (again? OH BOY) and we moved some hey bales off and onto the old truck.. CHP left and we proceeded back ta Poway, safely, with no more problems. Un-loaded both trucks (in the dark of night) and had a few laughs. Quite the day, never will forget that day!
Anyway, so many memories of that C-50 and all the good (and crazy) times we had in it... I came across this C-50 in Southern California and just had ta have it, got it home to here in Concord, California and been fixin' it up ever since.... and still havin' fun.
I am at a point where I love this truck "somewhat original"... but have the urge to re-build the original motor a little "hopped up", or put a big, bad hot rod motor in it, or just leave it as is and drive it 'till it dies (heck,the way these older trucks were built, I may die before it does... That's a BIG huh, huh?)... then replace it completely (but I hate ta loose the original 4 bolt main 327 that way!)....decisions, decisions, decisions... huh...???
AND NOW the misses is getting tired of the mess, and delays, and what she calls "wastein' time".... (HUH!.... I say softly...) and wants this project gone... "here we go"... no sense inresisting... I'll never win.... NEVER have, NEVER will... Ya MIGHT THINK ya WON... But later.... ya KNOW YA LOST!.... RIGHT?!.... sothis GREAT C-50 is up for sale.
So now ya know.....
