    Default Ryans 72 c10 build

    Hello everybody,
    This truck was given to me by a friend. It was taken apart about 9 years ago for restoration then they got side tracked by several other projects and it was left sitting in a field. There is a lot of rust however I see a lot of projects start off worse than mine and for free I'm not complaining.

    It will be a short bed once I'm done with it. Not trying to set any auto x or land speed records with it, #1 goal will be to just have fun.
    Suspension:
    2.5 spindles with 2" springs up front, 3" blocks with 4" springs out back
    I'm not sure which springs exactly yet or shocks and sway bars.
    pfab trailing arms



    Brakes:
    fronts - stock rotors with Wilwood D52 calipers
    rear - disc conversion with '92-'02 astro van rotors and Wilwood D52 calipers

    The engine build is already under way. It was an old 454 truck engine 1979-1982 if I remember right. It will be a 496 stroker on EFI with about 650 hp. Hydraulic roller cam, Dart pro-1 rectangle port heads.
    Trans- 400 turbo with gear vendors overdrive

    That's it for now, heres some pics.
