It was bound to happen. Chris and I went out this morning in a snowstorm and brought this back 72 C10. I plan on keeping this one but not starting work on it till I have the title in my name. It has 3 on the tree (will be 4 speed) it has 307 will be 350. Needs lots of body work but undercarriage is solid.

You will notice a hughe power increase when you replace the 307 , that year it was low horsepower and low compression.

Note: a 307 is a 283 with a 327 crank from factory

Good luck

Otis :)

Got the bed off today and hauled it to scrap yard. It folded up like a taco. Now to start sandblasting the rear of frame. I have all the new sheet metal so I guess I'm under way.
