I was looking at a 1965 GMC C10, it is rough shape, however there are 99% of the body panels ( Valued at $1000) required to put it back together. The truck is mostly complete but on a 94 chassis, with transmission and transfer case from a GMC 1500, no engine or wheels. I can easily source these for approx $500. I was told by the seller that any 350 small block will work, but the salvage yard with the engine said it must be in the 90s to properly communicate.


However I have done this with a Jeep and I had to rewire the dash and make certain conversions to get it to work properly. Does it really matter what engine I go with as it will not communicate with the truck body without modification. 


How rare are these trucks, especially in Canada, I can get this pretty cheap but it will be a project over a few years, the intent is to teach my son how to build a truck so that when he turns 16 in 3 years he will have a sweet ride. However by the time I get towed, and source an engine and wheels I will be at near $1300.
