This is Ol' Blue my 1966 Chevy C-25 (heavy 3/4 ton)It is a 283 4 speed.My dad bought it from our local Chevy dealer in 1974 and it has 263,000 miles now!
Yes it is rusty!But with a little tinkering this summer she ran and drove again for the first time in 15+ years.I made sure to drive her every weekend until it got too wet out.I have long term plans of making her road worthy again but leaving the "patina" if I would restore this truck I would have to replace everybody panel and I feel this wouldn't be the same truck I learned to drive when I was 12!
1st pic is after a cruise around the farm
2nd pic is in the shop getting the timing set and a protective roof for the bed(should have done this years ago)have to many cars to put it inside :(
3rd pic is the last 4 generations of my dad's Chevy trucks -'66 (263,000 miles,'79(261,000 miles),'82 (286,000 miles),and his 1995 (with a measly 82,000 miles!) that's 892,000 miles!
and the 4th pic in 1984 when dad brought my 1934 John Deere D home from the other farm!btw this truck was used for many years as the shop truck at the Chevrolet dealer (notice the push bumper)
Thanks for looking and enjoy!
