South of the border Chevy
We don't often think about how many old trucks are spread throughout the globe, but Martin Puebla from South America reminds us with pictures of his Chevy C-10. His father bought the shortbed in 1980 with 10,000 miles on it, believe it or not! The truck's title says '66 on it, but we're not too sure what's going on here. The later frontend could have been bolted on at any time, but seems odd for a low-miler, plus he states the paint is original. Check out the unique, wider- than-normal Stepside-style tailgate flanked by the previous body style's taillights. Again, all of this could've been put together by someone, but why go through the trouble? Even the original upholstery only shows minor wear. Martin goes on to say that being the Chevy fanatic he is he's proud to work on and drive the truck and has installed a 250 six-cylinder that boasts 180 horsepower thanks to a Penin manifold, Holley 2300 two-barrel, headers, Clifford cam, and valve cover. He also upgraded to front disc brakes. Martin hopes to help preserve the Chevrolet's heritage by owning and driving his, and we think he's doing a good job. I invite anyone with any insight into the pedigree of this truck or others like it to write in.
