I’ve inherited my grandfathers 1983 Chevy C10 stepside pickup. He was the original owner and bought it back in 1983, the year I was born. As his oldest grandson, born the same year he had always intended it to be my truck. He unfortunately lost his 5th and final battle with cancer a year ago and passed away.

He babied this trick and kept it in mint condition for the first 30 years of its life. Old age, hospital stays, and a cousin who lived with them and drove it like he stole it really degraded the truck over the past few years.

I’m hoping to return it to its former glory. I hope you’ll be patient with my as I’ll be on here a lot asking questions as I go. I’m new to this and have very little mechanic experience beyond the basics.

Welcome to the group! Awesome truck and that’s cool he passed this truck to you. It looks like it’s in great shape- feel free to ask any questions. I have an 83 gmc and this group has been a huge help. Check out the www.LMCTRUCK.com website. They have a ton of parts to help freshen it up.

Welcome Cliff! I'm also in Southern Utah though it looks like you're in the St. George area. I'm a bit north of you in Cedar City, so if you need anything, shoot me a message!
