1966 Chevy C20

Ben's C20 Camper Special was owned by his father, and now we are breathing new life into it with a new powertrain and other modern conveniences.  The goal is to restore it in stages, and make it a comfortable, daily-drivable truck.  We are doing a complete powertrain swap, favoring a new 300hp crate motor and 200-4R overdrive trans from the tired 327 and manual gearbox as well as a new front end rebuild.  A new cooling system, bed mount fuel tank, Ididit tilt/shifting column, and Dakota Digital VHX Gauges will round off the truck nicely.
