Video: Barn Find 1965 C20 Rescue

1965 Chevy Barn Find C20 Rescue video

The 1965 Chevy C20 Barn Find Rescue. We follow up on a tip about an old Alabama farm truck that has been sitting for 40 years! This C20 Farm Find was Chevrolet's 3/4-ton workhorse in 1965. A lumber company parked this beauty when it closed up shop in 1980. The remote, 100-plus acre property is loaded with junk. Tractors, dump trucks, a 1960 Ford pickup, and many other hidden gems. We bought the truck and Keith Lively hauled his own tractor and bush hog into the property to cut a road large enough for Junkyard Life to haul the old truck out.

What to do? What will we do with it next? Suggestions welcome in the comments. I'd like to see the straight six, 4-speed put back in working order. Only 103k miles. Plenty of potential for the 8-foot bed to do more work. It is mostly rust-free, except for the rot in the hood and tail gate. Note, the wood in the bed is long gone. A sheet of tin is the bed flooring now.
Those are not big problems. A fuel system, clutch, engine, tires and brakes are the only upgrades necessary to put this old girl back on the road. Parts and sponsors welcome. Thanks in advance!
