"Bandit"     1973 Chevrolet C-10

Introduction / Overview: Well I bought this truck in August of 2008 and i bought it from a car dealership bout 12 miles away from where I live and I drove it home and had to do some tuing on it to get it just right.  Then I put a cheap set of nascar rims and tires on it for winter storage becuase it came with brand new Cragar S/S rims that are in excellent condition. I drive the truck almost every chance that I can and it never lets me down when I want to get up and go
Drivetrain: It has a 454 BBC that is a older crate motor that was put in for a father and son project between 5-9 years ago. It has an Edelbrock 14' Air Cleaner Assembly, Edelbrock 750 CFM 4bbl, Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake, Edelbrock Elite Series Valve Covers,  MSD Pro-Billet Distributor, MSD 6A Box, MSD Blaster Coil 2, MSD 8MM Wires, Long Tube Headers that dump out 2 feet after the header. A Strong TH350 Tranny, A 3/4 Ton 14 Bolt Axle With A 4'10 Gear
Chassis: All Stock 1973 Chevrolet C10 Custom Deluxe Chassis, No modifications yet, Future plans are Wheel Tubing, and a 3-5 inch all around lowering kit.
Wheels and Tires:

Like New Cragar S/S Rims. All rims need tires, The ones that were on it when I bought the truck were shot from sitting in a barn for 4 years and never being moved. My plans are to put Cheater slicks in the rear and narrow P235 tires in the front

Body & Paint:

It has a nice body to work with, the bed needs wheel lip work on both sides and the inside of the bed is very beatin up so I am looking for a good bed to buy for it. The rockers and doors are still very solid and the only rust issues are bove each tire on the wheel lips. It was painted Satin Black with a flame job on the front end to make it look like a truck rat rod but it is all gunna go and I am going to paint the truck 2007 Chrysler Electric Blue, The truck was blue from the factory so i'm going to paint it a more modern day blue

Interioir: The interior is bar bones for the most part, It has no heating or AC system in it, No Radio or Heater Controls, Its has a B&M Mega Shifter, RJS 5 Point Race Harness Seats, and No Tilt Steering
