    No 56k: 1965 Chevrolet C10 daily driver

    Another small update: I ended up just replacing the old distributor with a new one (points style unfortunately) but it only cost me $40 and there was shaft play in the old one, timed at -4 at 500 rpm and she's running extremely well. Whenever I can find another camera Ill post more pics and...

    I'll definitely look into the Q-jets, I've heard of them and seen them around but I'm coming from a background of strictly fuel injected cars, so everything is a learning process. I was able to tune the single barrel rather successfully, it idles at about 450 rpm in gear and the manual choke...

    Ownership Verified: 1967 Ford Fairlane 500

    Beautiful fairlane! Definately not something you see every day and I bet you get alot of attention around town. I love the 289, great engine and that thing probably gets decent gas mileage. I'm running 3.73 gears and finding out its killing my gas mileage.

    Thanks! I do enjoy the uniqueness of the I6 and shes a stout motor, good torque, the power is just harsh, it comes on early, but it doesn't rev that high. Another thing on my mind is since this truck is my daily I don't know how much longer I can get out of an already 47 year old engine. She...

    I was debating on that but the maroon paintjob was done by one of the previous owners and by the looks of it, poorly, the original color was a kindof baby blue color, you can get a glimpse of it on the firewall, if they would have left it that color I think I would have gone the rat rod route...

    Thanks y'all! I'm in the process of sanding and priming, gonna go with flat black for now (until I can afford a better paintjob). On the agenda: Finish rewiring harness and installing new lock/key set.Hopefully the LMC truck white oak bed kit will be getting installed tommorow along with neck...

    This is more of a build thread but oh well. Picked this truck up in sore condition, no radiator, been parked since '09. Got it for a good price and made for a very promising project since I threw a rod bearing in my mazda. I Paid 700 for it and I've been eyeing this truck for years, so it seemed...

    I've only successfully done it about 3 times, the other few were a tad jerky. Like other people my gas pedal is set back alot farther than my brake so my biggest fear was over braking and locking up the fronts (shit tires). I found the safest way to practice is when coming to a stop just put it...
