This story started life in December of 1967 in Stockton,Ca when this truck was sold new as a 1968 Chevrolet Long bed C10 CST equipped with 327 V8 , powerglide transmission ,factory A/C , power steering and brakes, and factory bucket seats with console.
Now the story jumps 36 years forward to when Doug Times found this truck in Concord,Ca with its original black license plates still currently registered.He strikes a deal with owner for the truck along with a short bed rolling chassis,bed floor and sides.After which he purchases a trailer and hitches it to this truck and drives 2313 miles,using 244 gallons of gas,back to Ohio so the transformation can begin.
There are 600 plus very detailed step-by-step photos of the build available along with 100 plus current photos taken this month.There is a detailed video of the truck that was shot this month,besides the truck being readily available for personal inspection by appointment.
And finally for the best part of this story to explain in detail what was done and how it was done.
