FORMER MAGAZINE FEATURED TRUCK, FULL FRAME-OFF RESTO, 10K MILES ON BUILD!!!
Before you dive into reading all about this incredible 1967 Chevrolet C10 pickup, take a few moments to examine it carefully. Back? Good, because this is one extraordinary truck. A former magazine model, it is one of those beautifully crafted machines that takes a lot of studying to see all the tricks.
This truck's most impressive trick is making the vintage bodywork look sleek and modern. Part of that credit goes to the stunning two-tone paint job, which consists of Mandarin Copper and Sterling Silver, but there's more to it than that. Look closely and you'll see a neon green pinstripe between the colors and a neat little sweep around the door handles that makes it look unique. Body mods include a molded-in front bumper and a rear roll pan with LED taillights, and much of the trim has been shaved. Paint quality is, of course, quite nice and with those big CHEVROLET block letters on the tailgate, there's no question about the truck's identity. The two-tone treatment continues even in the bed, where the wood plank floor is accented by matching copper-colored rub strips that are a nice change of pace compared to the usual stainless steel. Go ahead and take the time to look this truck over carefully, because it's a real treat.
The interior is a bit less radical but every bit as nicely finished. Gray tweed upholstery is durable and comfortable and by using stock-style patterns, it keeps an OEM vibe going on. Nice copper-colored door panels match the dash inserts and all the factory gauges are still in place. Upgrades include the Grant GT wood-rimmed steering wheel and an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit in the dash, plus that big Hurst shifter and cue ball knob for the Saginaw 4-speed. Although the truck was finished a few years ago, the interior looks virtually unused and you can certainly see why it was chosen for a magazine spread. The glove box door features an airbrushed Chevy bowtie emblem, just in case you missed the big red ones on the outside of the truck, and floor mats were recently added to protect the gray carpets.
The show-quality engine bay continues a familiar theme with a color-matched 350 cubic inch V8 that's dressed to impress. Adding silver inner fenders, valve covers, and air cleaner helps tie everything together, and the workmanship is first-rate throughout. Lots of time went into smoothing the firewall and every component was either painted or plated to work with the others. The engine itself was filled with a high-performance Comp Cams camshaft and 10:1 pistons so it is still happy on pump gas and is fed by a 650 Holley atop an Offenhauser intake manifold. Accel provided the ignition system while block-hugging Flowtech headers feed a totally custom dual exhaust system that sounds fantastic. A Saginaw 4-speed manual gearbox is a blast to run through the gears and it feeds a 12-bolt rear full of 3.73 gears, and everything under the truck was painted to match the body as well. It shows a few signs of use, but there's no doubt that the full frame-off restoration was professional-grade and worthy of the attention it's earned. The lowered stance perfectly complements the 17-inch alloys which wear 255/55/17 performance radials.
Yes, this truck is very impressive with a look that'll never go out of style and enough performance to make it a blast to drive. Call today!
