The newest addition to Rath Auto Resources and the Meineke Car Care Center is the only truck on the lot that is not for sale (yet).
For weeks now, owner Larry Rath has been hunting for the perfect “shop truck” - an older, mechanically sound pickup that could be fixed up with some paint and interior work to be a center piece for the store. After searching the internet with little luck, this 1967 Chevrolet C-10 was found and purchased locally from Scott at S&S Locksmiths, just down the street from Rath Auto. Soon, this pickup will make it’s new home in the service drive of the Meineke Car Care Center.
The Chevy runs and drives smoothly thanks to a 327 cubic inch crate engine matched to a TH-400 transmission and a 12-bolt Positrac rear end. Credit should also be given to the complete airbag suspension for both the smooth ride and the awesome stance of the truck.
Anything needed under the hood will, of course, be handled by the technicians in our Meieneke Car Care Center. After any adjustments and tuning are done, a paint job is next, aiming for an aged, “rat rod” look with what will probably end up being vintage Meineke logos painted on the doors.
Expect to see plenty more pictures of this one as it is finish it out, and swing by the Meineke Car Care Center any time to check out our progress.
