Welcome to Early Classic Enterprises
The premier manufacturer and distributor of quality suspension and restoration components for 1960-1972 GM pickups, blazers, panels and suburbans.
I get lots of oohs and ahhhs on the truck. I tell them I almost went into bankruptcy buying all that chrome, bed boards, drop spindle brake conversions, misc., and in my judgment the best place to buy Chevy parts is Early Classic Enterprises.
It's a '67 CE10 Fleetside Long Bed with 327, large 3 speed turbo drive and the standard bench seat.
Here's a couple of pictures of the truck.
Have a great holiday.

Thanks for all your help and friendly advice.
I've had this truck since I was 15 and I'm now 32. Have bought the Shock Relocator Kit, Panhard Bar and a set of four inch Drop Coils for the rear.
Your site and company is the best , far as quality and parts.
This truck is my pride and joy, and it deserves the best.
I've had 15 other trucks and not one could take the place of my '72.
I'm the second owner of the truck.
It was totaled in '92.
Most people would have junked it, but I couldn't do that.
Put another frame under her and rebuilt it.
This time it will make the 3rd time its been redone.
I plan on having this truck 'til I'm old and gray.
Good Morning Dave,
Here are the photos of the Sub nearing completion. I still have the front carpet and headliner to install. Have lots of fun though. Smokes the tires at will. Lots of power. Seem to be getting about 16.5 mpg at that. Jim Wright out of Port Angeles, Washington did a fantastic job on the body and paint. I would like this to be known as he is a perfectionist and an honest individual. I will never take another project anywhere else.
Dave I sincerely appreciate all your help on this truck. Your parts were of the greatest quality and were always on time. Never had any issues with fit or finish. Just a reminder of the parts your company provided.

Thanks again Dave,
I have the ECE 1.5 Drop Coils on the front with the 1.25 Sway Bar. Also the 4" Drop Coils for the rear, Adjustable Panhard Bar, Shock Re-locators, and a set of your KYB shocks. What a difference all this made from not having any suspension mods when I purchased my truck.
Thank you for a great product.
