Farm Truck: 1965 Chevrolet C-10

1965 Chevrolet C-10

How much can this old clapped out farm truck really be worth? Seller’s son did drive it everyday until sometime in 2014, but it’s very rusty and is powered by a straight-six. The seller is realistic about the rust and mentions that the bed will need replaced. The seat had been chewed up by the dogs and there are many other areas that need attention. The engine does run and doesn’t smoke though. This truck is wearing Texas plates, but it’s located in Longville, Louisiana and is listed here on eBay where the bidding ends this weekend. It should be interesting to see what this old truck ends up selling for.

    A movie prop or country music video is about best the truck could hope for. Otherwise nothing special about it

    Now that’s quite the way to fix the rear suspension. I wonder where he got those special blocks? Other than that it’s another of those trucks that would best be fully restored. I see a lot of work just to make it a driver; might as well go all the way…

      Hi geomechs, I thought that might get a response out of you. Got a chuckle out of that. Reminds me of the rubber blocks, and those aluminum turn things. One big bump and they flew out.

        Hi guys. I sure do remember those ‘budget’ lift kits. They wore the springs out twice as fast. I remember some show-offs grandstanding and inadvertently hitting a speed bump. They’d lose only one. Real impressive…

    Dogs don’t look too happy it’s for sale so if you win take a couple T-Bones with you when you pick it up for safety concerns.

    26 miles north of me in Lake Charles. Too bad it’s not something worth the curiosity factor to check out

    Lowe’s? Wonder when they got into the auto suspension parts game? Sure hope that stuff isn’t off-shore…

    WHAT? Doesn’t smoke? Something’s clearly wrong. Truth is, at one time these were a dime a dozen. Pickup trucks really didn’t gain a lot of steam until the ’60’s. My old man used to borrow a mason friend’s truck just like this. It was a basic truck, just like this. Most of these were driven until they wouldn’t move, and tossed out back. Looks like this has a later model steering column ( and maybe steering box) that must have been an automatic and the engine too, throttle plate has a hole for the kickdown rod, and speaking of throttle, rather elaborate return spring mount. Probably, different gauge cluster. Still, it’s a cool find, and I’d like to have it, just for a “go into town” beater. Great to know, the “backyard tinkerer” is alive and well.

    To me this is the problem with reality tv,everyone thinks what they have is the next big thing. I think he should take the 2900 and run.

    Well, around here trucks like this are not too hard to find. But they seem to be gaining in popularity. I think in areas where the roads are salted trucks like this still in this condition command bigger money but these are not that rare in other parts of the US.
    I have one of these. Mines a 1965 GMC version. Bought it for $250 with a blown 6 cyl and 3 on the tree. Swapped in a SBC and Turbo 350 and drove it off and on for 15 years. Went to a lot of swap meets and hauled a lot of stuff with it. We call ours the “Old Gray mare” as its mostly grey primer. Currently sitting in my pasture, but it will see the road again.
