1979 Chevrolet C-10 C10 Silverado Big 10 Description

Up for auction is my daily driver 1979 Big 10 2WD short bed!
I've done many things to this truck to make it run reliable and safe. No rust ANYWHERE! This is a solid truck with no rattles. As you can see the paint is old. It has one decent size dent behind the rear left wheel from a tire blow out several years ago. The rebuilt components and upgrades allow for this truck to handle and drive so good! All the smog equipment is still intact so it passes CA smog with no problems. The truck has air conditioning but it does not work. I'm assuming it needs freon. All A/C components are there. The truck has a front bench seat out of a 1992 Chevy truck. This allows for us tall guys to actually be comfortable while driving. The seat sits lower and it sits back further for a more comfortable seating position. New door panels and a dash cover. The truck has been dropped using a DJM drop kit. It has DJM lowered shocks, a flip kit, front drop spindles, and 2" drop coil springs. Below are a few details of some of the things that have been replaced. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things. The truck runs so good and it never gets hot. I can drive this truck in stop and go traffic on the 91 FWY in 100 degree weather and it won't overheat. The truck has dual gas tanks which both work.
I've owned classic Chevelles, El Caminos, Impalas, etc, and I have never gotten some many thumbs up before!

I forgot to mention the truck also has a NEW battery and NEW HEI distributor.
The window weather stripping needs to be replaced, the head unit radio isn't hooked up, the left turn signal doesn't shut off automatically after you make a left turn. You have to manual shut it off with the blinker arm.
