Model: C10 Scottsdale
Owner Comments: I purchased this truck from a college student in 2005 for $900. It was a little bit pricey considering the trucks condition, but I really wanted a GM stepside truck and they seem to be getting harder to find. The engine block was toast and the interior was destroyed by years of neglect. I dropped in a 350 V8 from a 1979 Chevrolet K20 and purchased about $700 worth of interior parts (door panels, weather stripping, interior door handles, window handles, door locks, carpet, dash bezel, glove box, etc.) . I also added a Sony CD/MP3 player since the previous CD player had been torn out of the dash.
Thankfully the body was in pretty good shape. I did end up having to replace the passenger side inner fender and the radiator support because battery acid had ate a hole thru them. The battery tray had completely disintegrated and the battery was just sitting in the wheel well, so I replaced that as well. The bed was in pretty bad condition, as there wasn't a floor except for a few rotted stubs. I got some weather treated wood and did the entire bed with two pieces. In the future I would like to get a steel floor put in, when money permits,
Future plans are to get some new tires, bench seat with center console, cowl induction hood, and a new paint job.
