I have a little bit of a fixer upper project. I've inherated my grandad's old 1979 Chevrolet C10. This truck is powered by the base 250cid inline 6 cyl and has the 3 spd manual transmission on the column. This truck was not drove all of the time so it only has 60k miles on it and its 27 years old! We've only put about $600 into getting her road worthy and we've had her for just over a year. This truck is a solid, tough, workhorse and I would reccomend it to anyone whose looking for a used second hand work truck on the farm. We hauled 41 bails of hay on the 8ft bed, and this is only the I6! We average about 16-22mpg in a mix of city/free way driving. It would do better if it had Overdrive. I am just interested in fixing her up a little. I'm sure there are some restorers out there with some helpful tips and any would be Greatly appreciated. I love fixing up old cars, and really love my old truck. Any input in this thread will be greatly appreciated.
